Romantic blouse


Well, let me tell you that I was really crafty last week and now I feel content. However I didn't document everything so I guess I'll go one step at a time.
For today's post I am sharing one of the blouse I made. I bought several meters of this fantastic silk resembling fabric because I simply couldn't resist the lovely celery green color. I also bought it in light pink (don't judge, please!).

I made the pattern myself after having seen this somewhere around the web.
For the upper part of the bodice I used a shirting fabric with lovely and tiny pink and purple stripes and I must say I love how it turned out. I added ruffles at the joining place and added a flower for greater effect.

I also added ruffles at the hem. It is girly and goes nicely with both jeans and skirts.
I am having another one made for Eva but hers would be a lot different than this one. We are not that freaky to wear identical clothes :)
Have a nice day!

I love your blouse! I cant believe you made the pattern yourself. Everything looks so professional. I am so JEALOUS! I really really want to sew nice clothes for my 4 year old daughter (which are quite simple patterns, honestly) but I can't sew to save my life! Nice work :)

You are so incredibly talented Maya! Love this new dreadfully romantic blouse of yours! The ruffles, the gorgeous flower, the fabric itself. I bet you know immediately what you're going to make when you first lay eyes on some fabric right?
