I fell in love with this lace fabric at Spotlight and decided to buy it though there was only a meter left. Since then, I have been wanting to use it to sew a blouse but a meter was not sufficient for any blouse pattern I have. While sewing a Kaftan as a swim coverup for myself, I realized that I could use the same method to create a Kaftan blouse out of this precious fabric and I am so glad I did:)
