Vintage pin-tuck Blouse revisited


Back when I was undertaking my blouse-athon I featured a vintage pattern blouse I made for my daughter  (Vintage pin-tuck blouse ) and mentioned that I would probably make one for myself at some point. As luck would have it I  managed to source a nice fine linen which I softened with a couple of robust high temperature washes.  I initially did not incorporate any trim but after a number of people remarking that I looked like a member of the clergy I felt it needed something to remove the austere look. I have used this trim application before on a corset and have always loved pale blue and white together. The linen lace insert trim I picked up on my last trip to France (they excel at such things!) and I added the ribbon from my earlier project. I have worn this blouse a number of times and I love how it lifts everything I put with it out of the ordinary. Heavenly. …And there endeth the lesson!  O:-)
