      Added Sep 3, 2017

      The sketch above was my initial vision of a blouse with flared sleeves and a fitted bodice with buttons holding it together in the back. In a way or another I wanted to flirt a bit with the 30/40’s butterfly-ich sleeves and the 50/60’s buttoned backs. Simply, a vinta…
