A possible Lolita Blog Carnival topic was “My Favorite Blouse”. Unfortunately – to my dismay – it was not chosen. BUT that doesn’t mean I wrote write the post! So, here is my favorite blouse: The Blue Blouse.
I love this blouse primarily because I think it is the best item I have ever made and great design. The length and flare were really good so tat I could wear it over a skirt if I wanted, in which case I added a cut little ruffle to the bottom edge. I also think the sleeves – which have elastic in them – have a good amount of fullness; not too big and poofy but certainly cute and fluffy. Plus, I love the amount of bows on this blouse! The cute ones on the sleeves and the giant one at the collar, which is detachable. The collar on this blouse turned out really well also. Collars and neckedges sometimes give me trouble but not this time!.
I think the little tucks by the button flap with the little ruffles and covered buttons really make it look great and professional. Covered buttons became a favorite of mine after this blouse. They are so easy to make and really give the blouse a finished, store-bought look.
Here are a couple of the coordinates I have done with this blouse. I don’t get to wear it as often as I wish, mostly because I always think of it as being a sweet blouse. But when I wrote it last Saturday – first picture – I discovered that light blue doesn’t have to be coupled with cupcakes! It also fits absurdly well. I should really wear my favorite blouse more often.
