London, United K...






This top is inspired by Victorian blouses. I had little fabric to work with so I decided to alter JJ’s pattern. Before cutting the fabric, I placed the front part at about 6 cm (as far as I remember) distance from the fold (calculating 2cm/per pleat and 1 cm in between each one). I cut the back in two parts adding 1,5 cm at the top border for back opening.

Material Notes

Turquoise shimmering silk with embroidered pleats, ruffled collar and shoulders. Hand embroidery.

    This is AMAZING! The color, the fit, the sheen of the fabric, and especially the detailing on the front make this absolutely stunning.

    I just found this after looking at your Advocate blouse. How did I miss this? That fabric is to die for and I love the alterations.

    I love this boulse, you have an awesome design and style sense. Im guessing your under 25, and its refreshing to see other young people (im 17) with actual style.
