…is a new tag of mine. No matter how little time to sew I have, I’ll always find some to drool over some juicy patterns. In 2008 I fell in love with this blouse from Penelope Cruz’s collection at Mango:
I was at the dawn of my sewing and didn’t even come to the idea that I could make this up. And when I tried to buy it, it was sold out. Well, apparently, it had so much success that it got released as Vogue pattern V8598, as I just found out:
The pattern or at least that view, however, seems to have a few issues as reported here. A worthy alternative that made it to my to-do list and is actually cut and ready to sew (don’t ask me since when) in a black poplin, is Burda 1-2008-125, with or without cuffs:
The only major issue reported with this one appears to be a weirdly shaped sleeve cap.
Which one do you like better?
Update: it seems Knipmode published a more casual version of their own in the May 2008 issue:
