By browsing some shops and Pinterest I found many cute blousons and also the versions of Clare, Erin and Sophie made me want a cute bomber myself. Because I couldn't wait for the Rigel to be shipped to Germany, I browsed through some Burda magazines and found a similar pattern in issue 3/2014 and 2/2013 ( shows that, even though styling and some patterns are just off sometimes, Burda still produces pieces that are on trend, right before the trend hits the streets).
Here is some of the inspiration that I collected:
So, this is it. Blue dots in the front.
Here is, how I wore it with my parka, because though it's warm in Germany right now, it's still too cold for the blouson only.
I'm wearing me-made jeans with my me-made blouson. They are made with my basic trouser pattern, that I only sewed a little smaller by omitting the seam allowances. Now the fit is nearly perfect. On my next pair I'm going to take in the side seam about one more centimetre and then the fit will be spot on.
All other items are thrifted from various flea markets, thrift shops and second hand stores.
How do you like my version of a dotted blouson? Any tips, how the sleeves of the Papercut Rigel are actually drafted?
