We interviewed KaOrico about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It has a cool and refreshing look. The material being gauze, I designed something that can be enjoyed from spring into summer.

KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
To coordinate the design with a scarf, the neckline is v-shaped. The simple design will complement any kind of wardrobe.

KF: What are some tips for making this blouse?
This gauze with a punching treatment easily frays when making a bias binding
strip. The key is to try to work quickly and efficiently.

KF: How should we use this blouse in everyday situations?
How you wear the scarf will drastically change your look. For a still chilly spring
weather, you may put a cardigan over it. In the summertime, you can enjoy
only the blouse without a scarf, or wrap a scarf around to keep you from a
strong sun. Enjoy it in a variety of ways.
