How to sew a stunning Black lace Blouse
Black lace Blouse
A Minerva Crafts Blogger Network Post
This is an adaptation of a Butterick pattern. I do not often wear black or lace but well, this just hit me as a lovely thing to make. This is not just a stand alone garment either, it is the first of three coordinating garments which will all go together to make in stunning outfit.
Curious about how to make one yourself? Then click on the link and you will go straight to the full post.
Thank you to Minerva Crafts for the beautiful fabric and trimmings
I have sewn all my life and I am passionate about passing on my vast knowledge of sewing to others as I feel these skills could easily be lost. Crafts are not taught so much in schools now instead we buy cheap fashion items which are only worn a few times and end up on landfill sites which is bad for our planet. When you sew you are creating a bespoke garment which fits you perfectly and will last a lifetime. How wonderful it feels when you are complemented on your new dress and you proudly say " Thank you, I made it myself"
