This little number got lucky ,and I feel lucky I found it in my stash basket full of items I call "IN THE MAKING"'  or more proper my "' basket of shame'' !!l lol .  I don't even remeber what I was looking for Oh!! I just remebered I was looking for a piece of batting  in which I wanted to make a practice pad  ,as soon as I saw it I dropped everything to work on it ,I had purched the linen fabric 2 years ago and cut  it out , and then I got into something else like always and placed it in the basket..
I had to adjust the darts I think it was fashioned for a normall hieght women, I am on the short side or I should say petit.
I struggled with the zipper ,but I prevailed
I was thinking of adding something to it like crochet lace, these I found !yes some nice lady didn't want them enymore ,they were sewn on at the edges of pillows ,I simply ripped them out to use for my creations .
I also had some embellishements from a past flea market trip ,aren't they pretty ,I just couldn't decide what to go with .
I finally decided on the lace ...what do you think??
I sewed it on by hand and I went to my box of nick nacks and found this pin that I had puchased .... get ready 29 years ago I remember because I didn't have eny kids yet ,me and hubby used to go to the Pasadena flea market that used to take place at the P.C.C on the 2nd sunday of every month at the parking lot ,so this pin is from there I love it .
the finall result how does it look!!!!

Hi Theodora! Great top...I really like that neutral color linen, you can wear it with so many different things. And that lovely piece of lace and the pin just set it off beautifully! Well done, my friend!

BTW, I'm having a mini give away on my blog to celebrate my return from my blogging break...be sure to come over and enter! :o)

Great dress. I love the lace and the pin is gorgeous. Will you still be able to wear this dress or does it have to wait till it gets warmer again next year? Hugs Vreni

Dear Theodora,
What a lovely job you did on your blouse! I, too, have all kinds of half finished projects...just waiting for that rainy day. Don't you just love it when you can find something at a thrift store and turn it into a treasure? I just picked up a jumper for $1...it has this cute little cat embroidered on the top...so I am going to turn the top part into a throw pillow and the bottom part into a denim skirt for me! I'm very excited...I'll let you know how it turns out.

Have a blessed day, my friend,
