More Works-in-Progress

I'm not sure who this blouse is for. Prissy librarian? Office administrator by day, Pride & Prejudice-role-playing secret sex nerd by night?

Either way, I'm not sure this top, which is another class project, is right for me. Maybe it will depend on the styling. We'll have to see whether this work-in-progress will get hung in my closet. My pattern worked well, and I think I did a good job sewing it. It's a size 10. Do you think it's perfect for you? Let me know.
Here's another work-in-progress: the Lace Ruffle Tunic from Sew Daily. So far it's looking very '70s sleepwear to me. Again, maybe it will be redeemed in the styling: skinny jeans and suede boots....a halo of light on my feathered hair...oh wait: it is '70s sleepwear!! (Except it's cotton jersey, not some icky poly blend).
I've hit a snag though — literally. After sewing together the yoke, ruffle and front, I realized there were holes in the lace that were not there when I cut the pieces. So I think the lightbulb on my sewing machine melted the synthetic lace. Yargh! (see up close)

So I'm going to have to figure out some means of covering this up. But I need to come up with something that will make this less precious — not more so. Some sort of applique? But no flowers. Any ideas? Comment!
