Lekala 5573 – Blouse


Lekala 5573 is a pattern I bought on line and printed myself before the company began offering patterns made from personal measurements. I had to lengthen the upper front part to accommodate a larger bust.

I had a little piece of fabric and I had to be very creative to get the pattern to fit on the piece. I didn’t have enough for facings, so that I made from another fabric.

I use the blouse, but I don’t have the pattern any longer as I am not that happy with the fit. I usually get compliments when I wear it, though, so maybe it is just myself being to critical. well, too late, the pattern is gone.


About metteks

I have often been asked, why I don't have a blog as a sew and make so many things. After years of rejecting, I have finally given in and here it is. My name is Mette and I live in the Kolding - Vejle area of Denmark. I work as a schoolteacher, teaching mathematics, science and craft. As many other sewists I have cats, which are keen to help holding down the fabric as I lay out the patterns.
