Open Your Heart Blouse

Added Jun 21, 2010

by Ophelia K

Japan, Japan






I had been working on dresses past two weeks, and now it’s time to take a break.
This is my latest work.
I used 100% cotton, lace and rose embroidery ribbon.
The design is good for summer who does love collar, but wanna get breeze!
I saw a couple of open chest clothing, and wanted to make my own style.
If you have a blouse pattern, you can just cut off whatever shape you like under collar area.
Hope you will try one too;)

    This is fantastic! I have been toying with the idea of doing a cut out on a future project, and you’ve inspired me to give it a try! :)

    Gorgeous blouse! You’re so inspiring! I think a similar blouse with a bow tie would look great as well. Keep up the great work!

      Ha! Too bad we’re located so far away from each other, otherwise I would suggest working together with you – it looks like our minds work in a similar manner. ;-)

    This is so lovely! I have been meaning to make something like this, as I loved Luella’s cut-out heart shape dress. Now I feel inspired!

      Oh you should try one! It’s fun! Just don’t forget a “stay stitch” for the keyhole which I did….

    beautiful!!! As usual! I love the delicate red on the crisp white, I love the lace, the puffy sleeves, the silhouette of the shirt and of course I love the keyhole neckline! You are very talented – I know I’ve said it before but really all of your work is so beautiful, delicate and feminine.
