This was a plain black chiffon blouse with satin stripes of fabric about every 3/4 of an inch giving it a striped look. The rest of the outfit...the long skirt that went with it has long since vanished....this blouse has since been hiding out in my closet.
Decided it needed something so I got a piece of gold lame. Pinned solvy stabilizer on the top and bottom of the lame, took a marker and drew leaf shapes on the solvy and with gold thread, satin stitched the edges of the leaves and put in the veining. This was sewn on my sewing machine.
Then I removed the solvy and with more gold thread sewed the leaves to the blouse, both on the front and the back.
Now I want to make a pair of black crepe pants to go with it and I will have another winter outfit to wear...
Have to see what else is lurking in my closet that I have not worn for a while.....
My newest diversion
