The Romance Novel Blouse Grosgrain Giveaway! CLOSED.

April 27, 2010

Okay I'm not a romance novel reader. But if I were I'd be wearing this blouse to try and get into the part. All lace and cream and ribbons.

I used a very thin floral-embroidered cream material for the bodice and did a knotted smock treatment on the front. I then added a chantilly lace trim at the bottom. I modeled the bodice after a very sweet modcloth cami. The sleeves are a long line of embroidered florets. To give a shabby chic feel I added the loose skewed ribbon that cinches the front if desired.

I thought this gauzy piece looks best paired with light washed, frayed skinny jeans. Unfortunately I didn't have any frayed jeans but Forever 21 sells some pretty cheap skinny jeans in a TON of washes.

I'd say this blouse would fit a size small to medium.
