Romantic Butterfly Blouse
[Summer blouse makeover]
Boyfriend cut, oversized blazer, colorful sport shoes- the street style is dominated by casual style lately. And now with the world cup fever going around the national soccer jersey became the most popular clothing piece in the city. I am not a soccer fan but even I have 2 shirts. Go Germany! 
As much as I enjoy the comfortable tomboy look I think it’s time for some romanticism with a little couture touch. Time to show some skin ladies. It is summer after all! Following the current summer trends I’ve created today’s fashion DIY. Simply print out the free butterfly pattern, make around 10 3D butterflies (as shown in the tutorial) and sew them sporadically onto the front and back of the blouse. The result is an elegant blouse with a Parisian flair. Too pink and too girly? Contrast the blouse with some “hard core” boyfriend shorts, like those I did in my previous DIY.  

This DIY was also featured in the latest 7-8/14 issue of the German fashion 
magazine COUCH.

Apply thin line of nail hardener to the butterfly (satin and chiffon) edges. The nail hardener prevents the fraying of the edges by washing. You will have to hand wash or dry clean the blouse.
