Button-Up with Beaded Collar

My version of the Pussy Bow Blouse from Pattern Runway. I used a cotton batiste which proved to be a little stiff; however the blouse has been wonderful for layering. The collar tips are hand-beaded.

Material Notes

cotton batiste, “copper” beads, 6 or 7 buttons

    I love the idea of the beading, I’ve been thinking about beading the neckline of a dress, any tips?

      You should definitely give it a whirl! No revolutionary tips but it took me a couple takes to figure out that to secure them you need to take several passes through the bead. The first time I tried it the beads weren’t tight enough and I was afraid they would snag.
