{Things Look Rosy}

We had a lovely weekend with dear friends. So things were really looking  'ROSY' for me. No, I'm not talking about the economy but about my crocheted rose filet cotton batiste blouse. The pattern appeared in Anna Burda magazine and I fell in love with it. So I bought the cotton batiste and some DMC nr 50 thread to crochet those romantic roses and sew this blouse. Voilà!
This is in the front porch on Sunday morning after Church, before calling Mom & Dad. That's our normal routine, over a cup of coffee we talk with them.
This is the Anna Burda model...
Worn with my Krizia Jeans skirt from Italy and Escada platform sandals.
From the back it looks rosy too! Had to put my hair up so you could see those filet crochet roses...
For those of you who would like to copy this, here below is the pattern...
Some x's are missing to the left (lower part) but that is suppose to be a double row, just like the bottom outer edge. You can also make a doily out of it and sew some linen inside the center and make it square.

  2. This is beautiful Mariette, love to make one for my sister, I hate wear sleeveless, got a big brown mark across my chest and down to my left arm, in summer I feel shy about the ugly brown mark. Anyway, haven't pick up any threads for age, too much in my mind and maybe its the medicine, I just can't consecrate anymore with fancy pattern. Still dreaming to make more... one day I will, I hope! :-) I do love knitting and crochet.

  3. My dear Mariette-- There is no way I would attempt making this beautiful top, but I must say you could have been a model! You look just beautiful in it, and as the French say: "Quelle ligne!" ;-) Greetings from the French Riviera where the weather is beautiful and life so fun! Veronique aka French Girl in Seattle

  4. Dear Mariette,
    A lovely blouse and suit you too,
    So glad you are very bright happy lady that shows on your face.
    I used to crochet but not anymore because my eyes are not good anymore
    not only that "no patience".
    All my friends are like to reading the books & painting it most of indoors things but I'm opposites to them that I can spend time at outside in all days.
    A Played sports and fishing,Gardening.
    Thank goodness! everybody is different.
    You have a nice day,
    Michiko

  5. Sei bravissima!La tua camicetta ha un ricamo dolce e romantico!La festa di ferragosto è la festa della Madonna assunta in cielo!Si accendono i falò(fuochi)sulla spiaggia,nel mare passano barche illuminate con la madonnina dentro,si dicono preghiere e ci sono fuochi d'artificio.Questo si fa la sera nelle città di mare.Il giorno di ferragosto si va per prati,si cucina carne alla brace,si mangia il cocomero.Adesso sai cos'è ferragosto.Bacioni,simpatica e cara Mariette!

  9. Wonderful top, Mariette, you do beautiful work... BUT, even more beautiful than your top is your MOM! You look just like her, from what I can tell from your profile picture posted. And your Mom's figure? To die for! She has to give me her "diet." And what a nice routine you have for all of you to have coffee after Church... very inspiring.
    Best,
    Gloria

  14. Oh, Mariette, what a lovely blouse. You are so talented. That's very impressive. And you look just as beautiful as the model.

  15. You're quite a skilled crafts woman , Mariette, what a lovely piece of work!
    Much as I do and love craft, sadly I don't have the patience for crochet, although my mother has.. I haven't inherited her skills ..
    It looks a really nice blouse to wear with the hot weather you are having where you are, too.
    And it looks lovely on you!!
    Have a lovely week!!
    XOXO

  16. Mariette, This is a beautiful blouse for a beautiful lady. My mother crocheted and I have a deep appreciation for any who can take a string and create some exquisite from said string. I know that is over simplification but it is true. You do a fantastic job and the blouse looks so lovely on you.
    Hope you got some of the rain this past week. Make it a good week, sounds like you are very productive.
    Love to you, Ginger

  23. Lieve Mariette,

    Wat zie je er geweldig uit! Zo knap dat je de blouse zelf hebt gemaakt. Het resultaat mag er zijn. Ook je sandalen vind ik erg leuk. Ik hoop dat alles goed gaat met je ouders. Zal best moeilijk zijn om zo ver weg te zitten.

    Een fijne nieuwe week & bedankt voor je lieve berichtjes. Ze worden erg gewaardeerd!

    Lieve groet,

    Madelief x

  30. Dear Mariette,
    Hi! Your crochet blouse is so beautiful. What a delicate work! And it looks so lovely on you. Thank you for sharing the pattern. I'm going to send it to my mom. Perhaps she will feel like making such blouse for me. I would love to attempt it myself, but these days I hardly have any time for crocheting.
    Hugs,
    Olga

  35. Liebe Mariette,

    heute erst bin ich wiederin der Bloggerwelt und lese mich durch deine Posts. Die Bluse ist ganz zauberhaft und sehr romantisch. Ich kann zwar häkeln, habe e aber lange nicht mehr getan. Deine Traumbluse und das Muster, das du beigefügt hast inspirieren mich zum Häkeln. Vielleicht wird ja etwas daraus. Ich wünsche dir einen wunderbaren Tag. Liebe Grüße von Elvira

  36. Du schaust immer sehr natürlich aus, liebe Mariette! Gefällt mir sehr gut! Und das Top sieht zauberhaft an Dir aus! Du hast es sicherlich selbst genäht?

    Alles Liebe auch hier
    Sara
