London, United K...
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
