Description

I made this shirt from some leftover swiss dot material I got from an estate sale a few years ago. I used some of it in a draping class, but luckily I had just enough leftover for this top. This was created because I realized that I had no black summer button downs for work, and thus this was born. I didn’t pay any extra money in the creation of this blouse (I got the buttons from a desk ornament I keep at work), so that’s a major plus. I embroidered a red butterfly on the left shoulder because I was feeling inspired suddenly by Yuko from xxxHolic (she had a nickname of The Red Butterfly). Overall, a worthy addition to my wardrobe.

Material Notes

Swiss dot fabric, interfacing, 1/4" buttons, embroidery thread, stabilizer
