Anthropologie Inspired

Okay, so never mind about what I mentioned last week about taking a break from sewing. This week I am forcing myself to find time to sew.

It's been fun too. =)
Just before my chicken noodle soup for lunch, I finished this Anthropologie inspired peasant blouse. By no means to I care for some of their items, but they usually have some aMAZing blouses that are unfortunately way beyond my buget!
I did some free-hand embroidery on the sleeves, there is vintage rick rack in the front and back, and remember those vintage mother of pearl buttons? I sewed them on in front. You know, just for that finishing touch.
The blouse is in my SHOP, as is a more simpler one with lace peeking out at the hem.

Dear Miss Cheri,
This blouse is so sweet! You did such a lovely job on it. I also noticed that you have a new apron on your etsy site that I really like...same pattern as the "fruity" one...I'm very tempted!!!
Have a wonderful day,
Blessings,
Laura

I just love your peasant blouse! That crisp white with just a touch of blue is heavenly! And the buttons are the perfect added touch!
Beautiful!
