Just in time for PR weekend

Well, laundry, packing, and a few other things were on my to do list tongiht, but I just HAD to finish this blouse. I want to be able to wear it at PR weekend. The only way I could make the front of the blouse look right was to add trim. I an lucky that I was able to find the type of trim I was looking for - and this was the only one they had at JoAnns that would really work. It wasn't the original look I was going for, but I am pleased enough with the result.


I love the shell buttons.

Oh, it turned out wonderfully! I think the trim is just right for the blouse, and if it covers up whatever problems there may be no one will be the wiser.

It's lovely, Nancy. I may have missed it, but what will you wear with this?

I actually thought the trim was part of the embroidery on the neckband. It blends in so well. Looks great!

I must say, that blouse is lovely! The trim - so nice to see the softness of this blouse! I hope to see how you wear it! Creativeness kicks in when there is "adversity" to fix!
