Two Ways: Casey Lace Blouse

Jul 18, 2013

Hi Ladies,

I was working on the Two Ways post last night and created something that I wasn’t happy with.  I’m going to do some more work on it tonight and see if I can’t improve it.  I’ll put it up as soon as I’m finished, but I just wasn’t comfortable showing something in a post that I wouldn’t wear myself.

xoxo

    Belle,

    I love your site, but more importantly I love your honesty. Too often I feel the same dread, and I love to see that someone else takes the time to make it right. As my mother says “If you have time to do it twice, you have time to do it right.”

    I have several lace shell tops and am eagerly anticipating this Two-Ways! Since it’s one I will most likely copy, thank you for taking the time to put together something you love!

    What about doing the two ways post and also showing the original that you put together and didn’t like. You can discuss what you didn’t like about the original one. I think it would be interesting to hear your critique on why something doesn’t work.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
