Palazoo Pant, Labor Day


Happy Labor Day. Today I am relaxing after spending last night partying on a fabulous yacht with 600 other folks. I am wearing Palazzo pant that I sewed on Saturday night.  The inspiration for the pant came from Joni Marie Ross' Pre-Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear Collection. and Nadira 037  tutorial on Palazzo pant. My dear and fearless friend the  Diva  suggested  that a write a post about the blouse.
The is a Basquiña is a white blouse. White is the traditional color. In the last 20-years the Basquiña has become modern and subject to so many interpretations. My blouse is a modern interpretation of the traditional  Basquiña.. I purchase the blouse in 2011 and it fit perfectly in the bust, however the waist and hip was too tight.  I went to Jo-Ann and bought  laces from the bridal section and 1/2 yd of white cotton fabric. I cut the side seam open and added the white fabric and attach lace to the side seam to hide the seam lines. I also added lace to the top flounces. This was painstakingly done by hand. All the laces were sewed on to the blouse by  hand and I wore the blouse to an event in 2011. Yesterday the blouse was the perfect fit for my colorful palazzo pant.
Hope everyone is having an awesome labor day. Later!
