how to sew a blouse-top: pattern and cutting


your votes gave me 3 winners of the burda patterns: blouse, blouse-top and cape. So I decided I will make the tops this month and put the cape in for voting again next month. I started with the blouse top, which is pattern #105 of burda 12/2014, in case you want to make your own version.
