Denim blouse with trim

I saw a denim dress at Anthropologie with several rows of navy trim around the neck and sleeves. I said to my daughter, “I can make that!” But instead of a tunic dress, which doesn’t look that good on me, I made a blouse.

I used a pattern that I’ve used before and customized.

The denim is very thin, which is perfect for a blouse.

I used rickrack for the scallops around the neck and sleeves. I actually bought the flower trim from Amazon!

I have enough left-over fabric to make a sleeveless dress: my next project!
