so.. this is a refashion story
bought that huge frumpy blouse at flea market
for less then half euro
cause i fall in love with polka dots and collar
(and cause it cost less then half euro)
it was a kimono sleeve blouse
so, i sliced it at side seams
and then used my new favorite shirt pattern
(that would be burda seersucker blouse,
that i already made a few times, and i have another one
cut to be made later today)
to trace back and front pieces
i saved all the good bits from original blouse:
shoulder seams, collar and front button closing
even the hemming
there was enough fabric for sleeves
but i decided not to add them this time
see more pics on my blog mokosha
collar looks a bit off
because of my poor ironing job
not because there’s something wrong with it
sorry about that
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
