diy inspiration: ikat blouse

My next blouse revamp just might have to be inspired by this Thakoon Addition top:

Thakoon Addition top













You could either cut and fold a panel of patterned fabric to fit and simply stitch it to the front of a blouse (like here), or remove the front and sew on a new one.  I'll admit that I'm not a huge fan of the colors or patterns used here - not really up my alley - but I do like the concept.  And I appreciate its sharp take on the ubiquitous asymmetrical hemline.

Hope you're all enjoying your weekends!  After a very Madrid Friday night out, I'm going full-on homebody tonight.  Books, soup, blogs.  Ta!
