    You must be freezing but… hey WOW! La blusa ti dona molto, ed anche l’abbinamento con la gonna – tesoro è decisamente azzeccato. Complimenti :)

    This is beautiful. I like the boxy (I would say boufant) shape. The skirt adds to the shape of the blouse. Lovely cotton and gorgeous color.

    Love this shirt – do you think that it would work with a chiffon fabric? I was thinking it would be a little less boxy?

      I think chiffon would be lovely, but in order to make the fit less boxy, I think you need to add darts, at least in the back. That’s what would work for me, but then again, everyone is built differently :)

    What a bold and pretty blouse! Everything you make is gorgeous and I love look of the bright red against the stark white snow :).

    What kind of material did you use? You inspired me to want to make one

      It’s a gauzey cotton, it’s textured like linen. Sorry, I can’t be more precise but it had been in my stash for years. Anyway, it gives a nice body to the bow, so it doesn’t look floppy.
      Good luck with your blouse! :)

      Thank you. It’s second hand, but I don’t think it’s vintage. It was love at first sight, such an unique piece.

    Far too busy looking, although it would look considerably better without that skirt.

      Believe me, it doesn’t. It’s very boxy and makes me look shapeless. It looks better tucked in, maybe you’d like it more with a less busy skirt.

      Why would your one comment be negative? This is a lovely shirt and skirt, and I think that there is no need for you to point out your negative opinion.

      Great job paunnet! your work is always beautiful and inspiring :)
