This week started with thinking about 2012, and what I want to make (of) this year. After summing up 2011 I realized I might not need that many more dresses to be honest… so, time for separates! (I bet I’ll still make a huge amount of dresses this year…) Also I figured I would love to add some more blue to my wardrobe. Therefore, when starting this challenge, I took out some favorite blue accessories of mine: A pair of light turquoise 1970s party shoes from my mum, a silver necklace with a blue stone my dad gave me for my 20th birthday (I think it was for that one at least), and a canvas bag with a rococo-inspired pattern in white and blue. The inspiration led to this collage, and here's the finished blouse!
I ended up with more of a tunic than a blouse, but apart from that, It’s fairly close to the peasant blouses of late 1940s and the 1950s… when it doesn’t look like something from the good old Hippie days I guess. Ooups.
