Batik Blouse with Embroidery

Added May 17, 2017

I fell in love with this lovely batik cotton! I had to find a nice pattern so I could use the embroidery at the edge. It was a lot of work with rubber band both at the waist, neck and sleeve hem, but I’m happy with the result :) The pattern is from BurdaStyle 05/2010.
