Moms birthday

I can't believe that it has been almost five months since I last posted here!! Busy with the bakery, job searching and life in general. Here is one of my latest ~ a tunic blouse for my Mom for her birthday (shhh !! she hasn't seen it yet.)

White embroidered linen, 3/4 length sleeve (thanks Liz!) and red shell buttons. I adapted the pattern from a BurdaStyle pattern 'Ellinor' from their download collection. Originally styled as a pull over top I added a neck and front facing so it would be open down the front and then added loops and shank buttons. The sleeves of the original pattern we also quite belled and long, so I shortened them and straightened the line. It really does look better than the photo and maybe if I can get my mom to model, I will post a photo!
