red blouse remade

 I got this red blouse from the euro rail, it was silk and stained, and red (and very had to photograph red!).  I took it apart and recut, to make a blouse with tucks at the neckline, with back zipper opening.  I am always surprised when silks are discarded, and normally its because they are stained, so I usually launder in wool/silk hand wash, (dont soak) and then rinse with some white vingear in rinse water to make sure there is no soap residue, and steam iron gently.............. I also got a thrifted piece of tweed to make a matching skirt, more on my blog
