If you are thinking “oh my god, did she make ANOTHER Belcarra blouse?” then you are right. I did. But let me remind you that last time I made one, I also told you that this is one of my favorite patterns ever. I LOVE it. It’s so easy to whip one up, it’s great to get rid of scraps from other projects, and it just looks good, okay. I had this great gray shirting fabric left over from my birthday gift to Michael, and some lace left over from another project, and suddenly they just called to each other and I had to make them into something together. I didn’t have enough lace for a full blouse, but I had enough for some details.
I cut all the pieces of the pattern in the gray shirting, then I cut the lacc pieces and basted them together to the fabric, so it wouldn’t be see through. The pocket I didn’t baste together the two pieces of fabric because the lace doesn’t iron well (it melts), and I needed to press it to make its shape. So I pressed the pocket, then just placed the lace over it. Took some adjusting, but I made it work. I like the finished shirt, but I think the pocket makes it look really casual. That’s why I’m wearing it with some very casual shorts in those pictures. I’ll probably won’t be adding pockets to future versions of this shirt, unless I have a really good idea (never say never, right?).
I’ll keep this short since it’s not my first time doing and sharing the Belcarra, but I hope you enjoy this new version of it.
