blithe and bliss, or in other words; happiness
Here is a bit of happiness from Blithe and Bliss. This is one of my favorite tops that I have made recently. I know that plaids are "dead"... but, I personally still have a very keen fondness towards them. Plus since I use only re- purposed clothes and scraps, I have been finding MANY plaids in the give away and used bins! So, lucky me and my projects! One of my signature themes when I am creating is to mix similar color schemes together. In this top, you will see all the different green plaids. At first you wouldn't think they go together, but once all the green plaids are together, they look fabulous!
the neck collar gives the top a bohemian feel and the pop hand stitching grounds the crafty aspect of the top.

Remember those vintage buttons that I posted a while back? Well, they finally found a home, and Im happy to say they are happy to be on this top with pink thread attachments!
the back is my favorite! this was originally the inside of the shirt before i re- made it. I thought the graphic and labels were way too cool to not display!

Have a creative day and enjoy the beautiful weather while pondering of love! I love Sana Ana winds! So romantic!
