Lara's flowery blouse

Added Oct 25, 2015

Since I made the bolero for my little sister, I decided to also make something for my other sister Lara :)
This time I went for a pattern I’ve been admiring for a while (especially that it was forgiving and I’ve been told Lara put on some weight…).
I think I got the neck lining wrong, sewed it from inside to outside instead of the other way around, but you can’t see that :D And I modified the sleeves to be short and have a similar wrap-around effect as the front.Oh! And I added 10cm to the length.
The fabric is soft and delightful, easy to work with as well, it’s got a bit of texture to it that I liked as well.
She likes it and that’s good. The photos are taken after a beautiful day at the beach :)
