Pretty Things Blouse
Oh yeah… The Pretty Things blouse is up on the Sew Weekly. And I’m pretty happy with it. Here’s a Hipstamatic shot of the hand worked buttonholes before I remade them. I suppose in the photo they don’t look that bad, and y’all will think I’m crazy for ripping them out and starting over. But one of them wasn’t pretty. And I’m much more pleased with the look of the crochet cotton versions. Doily making isn’t in my near future, so I’m glad to have found a use for those spools.
*UPDATE* Here are the new buttonholes. They don’t look much different in these photos. And the originals might even look a bit more delicate. Just trust me that in person, the reworked version is more pleasing. K? K. Oh, and excuse the different lighting conditions :)
If you like beer and it’s available in your area, run out and try some Pretty Things. This blouse was celebrated with Jack D’Or and Hedgerow Bitter, in our new Pretty Things goblets. You can find them at the pop-up shop Process (by Fringe studios) in Union Square, Somerville.
