A Jaycotts.co.uk blog post
This is how I made my beautiful lace pintucked blouse and how I wear it without looking too "girly" Thanks to the wonderful Alex Jaycott for his input into my adventure with corded pintucks.
If you don't have a pair of leather trousers do go and try some on right now, they are an effort to get into I admit, well my skinny ones are , but they are the most comfortable thing ever. I love lace but for me it needs to look edgy rather than girly, so this pretty blouse will be worn with my leather pants and upcycled leather biker jacket. I will show you how I blinged my jacket later.
To give you a view of what we are going to make this is the front whilst It is being worn. The shape is very flattering with a fitted waist and lots of pintucks to create shape.
I must stress that if you do not want to do pintucks then gathers are quite acceptable, but do at least try them

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
