Lovely blouse in silk charmeuse, unfortunately a little too big, but i love it! The pattern reminds me of the 1940ties, and I added the gold buttons and white trimmings to give it a nautical feel. Instead of making those loop-things that the pattern called for I made buttonholes, but I would tweak the front a bit if I was to do this again… I finished off the inside of the shoulderpiece by hand to make the finish as pretty as possible, picture 3…
Sorry for the poor quality of the snapshots, I took them myself, and at night…
