Description

This is the kind of outfit that makes you self-conscious about your arms and hands movements . I guess I have to write the play and a role in which this blouse would feature…

I also opened my US navy trousers after 12 years of good services (they were my all time favorite)to cut new ones.

As for the top, I used the remnants of the fabrics I used for my Celeste dress (Carat by Carotte) to create the weavy pleated front part and for the bishop sleeves, I got inspired by a dress I saw in Radio Days, a vintage shop on Lower Marshes (Waterloo). I really enjoyed working on it, trying to reproduce the features that I liked on others garments, working slowly trying to sew the inside very neatly. I am really fussy about finishing garments and it really gets on my nerves when I can’t make it right (I so much want to be taylor!) whether I am going to wear this blouse is another story… or theatre play….

I am a bit shy

    … a work of art, the explicit detail is more than runway worthy, I would buy this with no hesitation and find every excuse to wear it, Also a very beautiful picture right from a centerfold in high fashion magazines, adorn yourself in this work of art hit your local vino cafe and feel good because your efforts are worth it : )

    oh I love this (though I love all your creations). it’s really amazing. I hope you don’t mind but I think I may use some elements of this in my own creation of the base pattern…

    Shy??? Are you kidding? I am shocked!!! I have never seen something more feminine, gentle, stylish… I have no words to describe it. I really like the color and all these curvy lines. I am sure there was soooooooo much hard work with it! But it’s absolutely worth it!!!! P.S. Save me a ticket to your play in it :) And applause to you!
