This is a blouse I made a few weeks ago that I’m IN LOVE WITH even though it’s FULL of flaws and I’m sometimes a little ashamed to admit it’s me-made. I really like pearls, I think they’re classy and timeless – what outfit isn’t improved by a pearl necklace? I’ve been wanting to use pearls as embellishment for a while but I couldn’t decide how and with what fabric. In the end I went for the simplest design possible – black short sleeved blouse as a backdrop for the embellishment. Sometimes keeping it simple is the best is the best policy.
