Doilied

Have I mentioned how much I love the internet crafting world?  For instance, there is a spring top week going on and I really wanted to join. 
I also wanted a strapless mauve blouse to add to my somewhat lacking wardrobe. I wanted it to be practical (strong straps & covered shoulders) but I also wanted it to be girly & delicate.
 So naturally I sewed a doily onto it. Since the supplies to make it cost me under $5, I am very motivated to throw together some more.

What an adorable shirt Lili! I swear, every time I look at your blog I almost wish I had drug (dragged?) my sewing machine to France with me. Almost.
