Coup de Soleil

I came across this airy crepe de Chine and bought it by accident. It was not long before my summer vacation. Its luminous lemon color with grey polka dot print and a light breezy texture were hard to resist to. And it seemed to be ideal for an outfit for my coming beach vacation.

I decided to turn it into a flowing blouse with cool yet comfortable details - a cascading hood, loose roll-up sleeves, unusual hemline and a cinched drawstring waist.. The ideal pattern for this shirt was found in the fall issue of Burdastyle magazine for 2014.
