Description
Couture knitting brings to mind detail work, which also brings to mind retro-inspired designs. While the embroidery details on this blouse are inspired by a vintage pattern from the 1940s, the finished product is a strong piece for any decade. The slim fit is decidedly modern, as is the black-and-white color contrast. The embroidery is easy - simply follow the purl stitches.
