Winter and Christmas/New Year are closing in and I wanted something that is wintery and sparkly. Something that can be used in the evening but also with jeans during the day. So I came up with this blouse.
My take on this material mix pattern was a bit crazy, but it turned out nice…I used scuba mesh for the middle bits, (very!) delicate knit for the sides and sparkly tulle for the arms. I also used the tulle for the front and back yokes.
Due to the amazing tendency of the knit to unravel, I used bias satin tape for the collar and hem (and inner shoulder seams).
On the negative side, since the scuba is a bit bulky, it’s challenging to wear inside skirts and pants, or at least some shapes of them. I end up looking fat or like I have huge boobs :D
Already worn it to a night in town where the photos were taken, and also to work today with a pair of black skinny jeans :)
