Slightly bohemian style

As you might have guessed, yesterday I was sewing my pre-Christmas dark blue blouse of extremly fine woolen fabric by Anita Pavani – and this will finally be the last blue piece of this season…

What I hate is when gowns are already cut and I don’t find the time to sew them – so in this case!

I cut this blouse about three weeks ago – due to a blouse of my own by Schumacher which I couldn’t wear anymore as the very fine chiffon was broke 🙁 Meanwhile we celebrated Christmas and New Year’s Eve and renovated two rooms of our house, so I definitely couldn’t remember what I thought when I cut the blouse… The result was that the sleeves was so much too long you wouldn’t believe. I tried it yesterday evening when I was done and went out to shop some groceries. But these ultra-long sleeves just cost my nerves…

In order to that I cut them this morning (12cm shorter now!) and revised everything again – Oh, how I hate this really! The thing was that due to the particular design of the blouse with its open edges at the front and back, I first could attach the sleeves when the edges were already done. Normally I attach them earlier when it is no problem at all to cut them then…

But finally this has become a very nice blouse and rather sewed very properly – perfect to shift some of my looks in a complete different way. Here are some detailed pictures:


It offers the possibility to dress a little bohemian like, like I did today with my new finest wool blouse of yesterday, my glittering wide leg pants and my woolen knit coat. Adding some flat rough boots (like mine by Billi Bi) helps to shift the look into this bohemian direction while down styling it at the same time.
