This is my second rendition of the Hot Patterns Weekender Monaco Blouse. I used another piece of lovely cotton silk blend that I picked up in New York. As it turns out, this blouse pattern really calls for some kind of visual interest so I created pintucks using a contrasting thread (I couldn’t find a matching color that I was happy with) on the outer yoke.
I really like this pattern and I want to make the dress version, but I need to find the right fabric.
Cotton silk blend.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
