collaboration blouse

This was a collaboration project with my friend and we finally finished after a few months since we started. We made matching blouses together copying some ideas from a blouse by Beyond Vintage, customising some details. I was in charge of the silk crochet part and she was in charge of making the pattern and sewing up the cotton silk fabric part. The crochet part is exactly the same for both blouses, dividing lines matching the raglan sleeve, trompe l’oeil peter pan collar, mini diamond pattern, lacy flower bud motifs, and picot edges.

My blouse is slightly fitted and has full length sleeves

My friend’s blouse has a loose silhouette with gathers at the chest and cuffs.
The sleeves are three quarter length.

cuffs are crocheted as well
