Friends, summer in Chicago can be brutal. It can be extremely hot and humid during the day, only to get steamier at night from evening thunderstorms. While on my quest to make more separates for my closet, I decided to combine my love for bow blouses with my desire to keep as cool as possible. Voila! Sleeveless Jasmine blouses:
I busted 1 1/2 yards of butter yellow cotton and lime green poly cotton blend (each) for these blouses, and I've loved every minute of wearing them! I bound the arm openings with bias tape, so they look lovely inside. Also, I've been using the serger to finish the insides, which speeds up the process considerably!
The lime green was leftover from a pair of lounge pants that I had made as part of the stashbusting challenge, but alas, I have not had time to photograph them!
I have more sleeveless blouses in the works, and even more skirts to pair them with :)
Stay cool where you are, friends!
