I made this blouse last year for my final line at fashion school. I arrived at this version of the blouse (the one I was finally happy with) by creating a bunch of crappy samples, and two usable silk samples (one in grey, one in black) that ended up going down the runway at Seattle Fashion Week 2009 (see photos here!) and being in the September 2009 issue of Seattle Magazine (see the article about me here!). I’m going to put those for sale on etsy with a bunch of other samples asap!
If you like this blouse (and I have 2 available!) you should proceed to my Etsy page. And thank you.
Women’s size small/medium button-front ivory colored silk blouse with ruffles down center front and at the cuffs. It’s made of a buttery soft silk Georgette and is all buttoned up with plastic off-white colored buttons (14 total!).
Length from high point shoulder to hem: 24″
Width at bust (measured 1″ from underarm seam): 36″
Width at waist (measured 8″ from underarm seam): 38″
Width at hem: 42″
Full length of sleeve (It seems long because it’s designed to have excess fabric throughout the sleeve as shown in the pictures): 26.5″
Width of wrist (buttoned): 7″
Neck width: 15 3/4″
100% Silk, Dry Clean Only.
PS. That adorable young lady in the top two photos is Alana Osborne. She modeled for me at Seattle Fashion Week 2009, and then again for my final line for school. And the photographer for the top two photos? Celie. Although you can’t tell, she’s also adorable.
