I wanted to make a 20’s style summer blouse that was a little romantic, but that would also work well with jeans.
The blouse has puffed sleeves, yokes and gathers both in the front and back. I’ve drafted the pattern myself.
The cotton lace inserts is dyed in regular Ceylon tea to make it look vintage. The lace was white when I stared but after 5 min in the cup it had a nice yellow/pinkish tone, that is colourfast.
Thinly woven rayon and cotton lace inserts.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
