Cutout shoulder blouse - self-made; Floral skirt - self-made; Vintage belt; Steve Madden Wedges
The blouse idea came to me several months ago when I started to cut and sew pieces of this great gold-flecked stretch cotton fabric; however, nothing went right with it -- it wouldn't hang correctly, and I kept sewing crookedly. Frustrated, I threw it into my closet, disregarding it as an unfinished project. An entire afternoon of sewing yesterday yielded these results: I revisited the cut pieces and finally finished it, turning it into a cropped blouse. The floral skirt took me about an hour and a half to sew. I found the fabric at a local warehouse sale at a deeply discounted price. Score!
