Crochet thrift shop blouse

Remember I was telling you on FB that I discovered a crochet blouse in a thrift shop? Well, that blouse is absolutely amazing! It's incredibly well crocheted, with care and in a good yarn (it looks so much like Catania Cotton I'm using). That's why I was able to change it's appearance, as you can see in the picture bellow.
I started checking out the thrift shops only recently, after I bought my new sewing machine and I wanted some cheap materials to exercise on (maybe one day I'll show you my progress on this topic, too). Anyway, when I spotted this crocheted blouse on a wire hanger, I was a bit skeptical at first about whether should I take it or not, but then I thought "hey, there is no such thing as machine crochet, so this must have been made by someone out there" (fact proven in this article too). So I took it and I am so glad I did. It fits me nice, it's machine washable, it's versatile and it was so easy to change it's knitted and inexpressive collar with a crochet border.To make the border I joined several tiny flower granny squares that I can't find the pattern for right now, but if anyone interested, I can write it down anytime.
Tell me, how do you like the result? :)
