Secretary Liz!

Added Nov 6, 2007

Brighton, United...






I made the Liz blouse from paper-clip print fabric. It makes me think of something an ironic 1940’s secretary might wear! It came out a bit big, I may take it in a bit. I found the collar instructions a bit confusing, but apart from that I think it went ok.

Material Notes

Paper-clip cotton and vintage buttons

    So cute! I love the contrasting buttons. Did you lengthen the kimono sleeves or did you just follow the pattern? They look a bit longer, which I like.

    nice, I like the buttons and that you team it with red (skirt & nailpaint).

    Oh I love this! The red buttons pop and the paper-clips are so whimsical.
