Description

This winter season I’m in love with red and its variations. So all the wine colors are in :D

The blouse was pretty much love at first sight, I looked at it and straight away knew I wanted it in some reddish color and in velvet.
I made only two changed to the pattern: Eliminated the frills on the sleeves, and eliminated the zipper at the back since I used stretch velvet.
And I love it! Considering to make another one in black with some alterations.
I think the waist is ~5 cm too high though, I think it’d have looked even nicer if this front and back pieces were a this much longer, but even as it is, it’s very nice and I’m going to wear it out!

    An interesting blouse… Such an image from the previous age, in pair with jeans looks stylish. And to see your emotions is a great enjoyment as well:-)

      Thank you so much!
      But you’re in sunny California! It’s places like this people like us tend to run away to during autumn and winter (well, and Thailand :D)
