    There’s something so lovely and classic in your design. The neckline really steals the show. It reminds me of Audrey Hepburn, so effortlessly glamorous. Keep sharing your beautiful designs! :)

      Hello thed4ydre4mer!!! I thank you so much for your lovely coment about my blouse!!! I specially apreciate it because….Audrey Hepburn to me has allways been the “epitome” of class and elegance, so……thank you again!!!

      I am glad that you like it Alicia!!! and yes, I did the pattern, and if you go down and read my reply to Suzete Williams on May 17th, you will see how I did it, do….I forgot to say to her that: I put a piece of paper under the linen, touching the sewing machine….so: paper….linen blouse…and linen with drawing of the neckline or petals….it is really simple and all you need is zig-zag….just try and let me know how it works, ok???

    Lovely design and execution. I’ve been thinking about doing something in linen for a while, and this is so inspiring. Such elegant simplicity!

    The neckline treatment is GORGEOUS!!! It reminds me on the project of ‘lovely_polly’ which was featured some times ago (twinkle sews, wenlan chia)… but you made a super type! immi.

      I love linen too! My teacher makes fun of me because it is my favorite and he is a die-hard silk fan.

    Gorgeous as usual Adriana. Is that silk or satin around the neck? It looks shiny… maybe I need new glasses – lol.

      Thank you Suzete!!! and no, actually it has been embroidered with heavy zig-zag, and I use the special thread that is a bit shiny. What I did was: draw the neck line (but did not cut it) and then, put the piece of linen on top of the linen blouse (before binding the armholes and neck, of course) and then, pass the zig-zag very small and very tight. Once that was done, then I did the cutting, and THEN….I pass the zig-zag all over again but a bit wider that the first one, and then just finished with the self binding……Did you understandme??? I hope so…..
