Lovely Blouses From Embroidered Linens

Luckily, I have managed to find three of these gorgeous creations. They all have labels from K.A.S. Originals of Fredericksburg, Texas. What a lovely idea to combine all sorts of vintage linens and quilted patchwork pieces into a pretty blouse! The front:
and back of the first one I found at a consignment shop here in town ( the back of the collar is flipped up to show what lies beneath).
And another front:and back - I love the back of the collar on this one, and the floral linens they used!
And the third one, a little different in style, with a table runner forming a bib front:
This style is less appealing to me - the sleeves on this one are my favorite, though.
And I would be willing to bet that the blouse worn here by Country Living Magazine Editor-In-Chief Nancy Soriano (shown at the Marburger Farm Antique Show in the April 2007 issue) was made by the same people.
They're beautiful, aren't they?

Boy, oh boy, you're not kidding about us having very similar tastes! It's a good thing we don't live in the same city. We'd be knocking each other down at the thrift stores!

Cheryl- You're funny, but I fear that may be all too true!
