I made this probably about the same time I made the ruffled layers skirt, so sometime this past fall. It was also from the same Simplicity pattern which I am too lazy to look up right now. I never wear them together, though, because Holy Lotta Ruffles, Batman!
I used a dark gray chambray. I think the darker side is actually the “right” side, but I decided to go with the gray and use the charcoal as accents on the neckband and armband. The gem buttons on the neck were originally purchased for something else, but I forgot what, so they got put on this!
The buttons kinda look like glowing eyeballs.
I have found that I absolutely have to wear my hair up with this blouse due to the high collar, but then I feel like I look more prim and proper than I actually am. Thinking about making some kind of cool fascinator to wear with this so that it won’t look so fussy. Maybe something Guns n’ Roses themed.
