Sewaholic // Belcarra blouse 2.0

Back in February, I blogged my first Sewaholic Belcarra blouse, which I’d made 6 months prior to that, back when I was still very much learning a lot of the techniques involved.

Iย picked up the fabric from Ribes & Casalsย duringย a recent trip to Barcelona, Spain.
