Aime comme Miroir

FINALLY I made this famous pattern! I bought the Aime comme Miroir pattern three years ago while I was visiting Paris because I NEEDED this blouse in my live. Urgently. So urgent that it stayed in my pattern stash for three years *slaps head*. It was included in my #makenine for 2 years. So, THIS year is the year of the Aime comme Miroir!

Fabric

The fabric is a double gauze sponsored by Budgetstoffen. You can find it here. It’s actually a really nice fabric, although it is a pain in the *** to cut because of the loose weave. After washing I needed to iron it before I could even lay it flat. Let’s say it will definitely need an iron session before I can wear it! After wearing it a couple of times I can say that the fabric feels like a cloud when wearing it. It is light and soft. It keeps you warm but is still very breathable because of the natural fibers and loose weave. Biggest downsize the need to iron it (at least I do it because otherwise, I don’t really feel representative at work).

The pattern: Aime comme Miroir

I made a size LL without too much changes for the first go. I added about 5 cm of length to the top, one of my regular adjustments because #sewingtall. Normally I would lengthen the sleeves as well but because they are elbow length I kept them as is. It is a pity that size LL is almost the biggest size in this pattern.

I didn’t apply any interfacing to the facings, which I really should have done. It’s not that much of an effort, and now my facings are crumbling. It needs a lot of ironing before they stay flat. So, interface your facing kids!
