Emerald City

I finally finished this emerald blouse on Friday afternoon. It ended up being a lot more time consuming to make than I originally thought because it required quite a bit of handwork. There were a few moments when I thought it might end in disaster, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out.



{top made by me; Banana Republic skirt; Nine West shoes; Michael Kors watch; vintage jewelry}

It Looks great! My mom is going to attempt to teach me how to sew soon. So we'll see how it goes!

Your top came out awesome! I saw a cute paisley fabric on clearance at Hancocks.com and I want to buy it to make a similar top... but I figure I should start small first. LOL
