This blouse was a Goodwill find that required some work. I loved it at first sight–ruffle blouses  add a nice romantic, whimsical edge to a tailored office outfit, but when I tried it one after getting it home I noticed that the buttons that run up the front of the blouse (I know they’re hard to see) tended to come undone easily. Since this heralded disastrous results, I decided to sew the buttons closed entirely. The blouse is loose enough to not need them anyway. Sometimes thrifted finds require a little work, but it’s often worth the effort.

This is definitely the evening version of this outfit. On the way to work I’d likely pair it with some metallic flats and a larger tote bag to carry all of my belongings.

  1. Such a pretty blouse- so delicate and feminine! Great idea sewing the buttons closed- I have a blouse that does something similar and it makes for some, “Oops, that’s totally my bra showing” moments. :) I need to employ your method!
