S2422 & V9537
Okay, not quite. But these are the colours of Hermes which is what I thought of when I bought the jacket a while ago. Yes, I am still building a wardrobe around the juicy thrifted item. Faye hosted an Over The Top Challenge which is now the Bottoms Up Challenge. Stay tuned for another partner to this blouse.
The facing wouldn't stay down/in on this silky print, so I sewed on the beads. I am not thrilled with the hemming on the ruffle. I couldn't get it narrow enough, so I made the stitching prominent by running it through the serger again with the blade down. This is how I'm wearing it today. Yes, without my orange "winkle-pickers". Love them.
