Another summer blouse

This is another linen summer blouse. I use the finest quality swiss cotton lace that I could find, expensive….yes….but I think it was worth it. I choose 2 laces and put one on top of the other to be able to make nice corners (mad about nice corners!!!!!!!! grrr), also it is very confortable because it has buttons at the front (real mother of pearl buttons), and the small darts at the front and at the back that give a nice soft shape to the body. I think it is lovely to wear with jeans or a nice pair of white pants or skirt for a summer garden party. To learn couture finishings and more, please followme to: Rainforestcouture

    This blouse is marvellous, so delicate, Where do you find swiss cotton lace?? I would kill for finding that. your blouse reminds me those dresses my mom used to make for me when I was a child. Love it!! super fresh for this warm season!!

      Hello my dear Milkyway, actually I buy it in Miami, because here in Costa Rica is just imposible to get, so when I go there, I just buy lots of things that are imposible to get here…..even good quality zippers!!!! There are 2 laces toguether, one that is voile embroidered, and another one that is knitted. I am glad you like this blouse!!!

    Your designs – again – takes my breath away! I have SO much RESPECT for your work. I just got my computer and should be getting my internet connection within a week and half, so now I can show you some of the things I can do too, I can’t wait!! It’s designers like you that make me think outside of the box when it comes to fashion and challenge myself. you are SO SO SO talented. Like I said before, I pray that I too will one day be as good as you.

      I tryed to take a picture of the back, but…..the batteries run out…..but the back is like a strapless dress straith, and the neck comes round like in the front and just touches the strait line to go back up again to wards the shoulder…..Did you understood?=???. I am really happy that you like it!
