The Strippy Blouse

Added Nov 14, 2012

I took my own advice (and Modcloth’s) and used bias binding as an embellishment. I quite like the effect!
After thinking about it for a few minutes I managed to figure out how to attach everything to everything without leaving raw edges. I just LOVE figuring stuff out! The bias strips are still a little stiff from the STARCH which makes the sleeve look a little wonky but other than that I LOVE the way it turned out!
If you want to hear what advice I gave myself and tip on how to deal with slippery fabric bias strips, you can check out my blog
