Business in the Front, Party in the Back

Added Jul 28, 2011

San Francisco Ba...






This top is from another blouse inspiration that combines the clean lines of a button-down with a little twist. In this case, the top in question is sleeveless and simple in the front, with ruffles along the back. It was a whimsicle, easy design to make, and the result is understated but surprising.

    I LOVE this!!! What a great look. I’m inspired to try this – after I finish my current skirt project…which I should be working on instead of surfing the net!!!

    The ruffles are great! They add a quirky twist to a classic shirt.

    I love this shirt! So classic from the front view and stylish from the back! I may be taking inspiration from this in the near future!
