    Hi everyone, I just made my first Weekend Getawas Blouse and I love it. I made the first trial in a very cheap fabric and now that I know I love it I will make it with the good stuff. I am so happy with the result that I want to make in different colors and started to wonder if there is some customization that anyone has done to this pattern to make it look different… I thought maybe with the facings inside instead of outside? Has anyone tried that? I will first make a blouse with the fabric I inteded for it and afterwards will venture with new ideas, but if anyone has a tip, I will be more than happy to read. Cheers.

    How fun, glad it worked out — I am still trying to find the time to make this one. I’d also love to know what kinds of different spins people are putting on it. I did a quicky flickr search and found these:

    I can’t seem to find it now, but there was a cute one that cut the front stitching line on the fold to make a basic blouse with jewel neckline/no placket. Can’t remember if it was Instagram or maybe Pinterest?

    Thank you Sarvi and Liesl. I´ll keep my eyes open. Esprit has some styles that are somewhat similar right now… even a sleeveless one. I am happy because usually I need to buy bigger sizes in order for my chest to fit in… I´ll work on it and let you know.
