The printed blouse is a fun twist to the traditional shirt. Your look can go from professional to fun-chic, depending on the shape and illustration of the print. This DIY chemise by French blogger Make My Lemonade is an adorable textured take on printed blouses. Because it is decorative, it can be dressed up or down. It’s a way to show off distinct feminine style, as well as demonstrate your sewing capabilities.
This French blogger is both talented and patient. To make your own, pick a good quality shirt. For the embellishments, the blogger recommends sequins of different colors, tiny pearl beads, and flower-shaped beads. Using an embroidery canvas, sew different formations of beads, pearls and sequins in little patches. Space out the embellishments randomly, or measure with a ruler the distances apart for a neater looks.
