Martha you have written your review all in bold, any chance of editing so the titles are in bold but the rest is not, its easier for us to read like that:-) Lovely colour btw on the thumbnail

dreamdesigner, I didn't exactly intend to change the sleeves but I lost the pattern piece for the sleeve facing! I don't think I changed the shape, as I just traced the lower sleeve pattern to create a facing, aming it about 6" deep. I did omit the vent in the sleeve and just roll it up a bit.

You look wonderful in this beautiful blouse. It was worth 2 muslins to get something so flattering and so elegant. Thanks for motivating me to get this pattern out of my stash. Of course, since you make the same alterations I do, perhaps I could just borrow it:-)

Beautifully done! Did you change the sleeve bottom? Looks like it kind of flares out.

You have a very elegant blouse there I love the dupioni which you paired just so with the lusterous pearly buttons. Congratulations.

Elegant lovely blouse-I will have to try this in dupioni too!!! Good tips about the neck binding and basting in the sleeve.

Thanks for a very timely review, I've been working on this very pattern! I really appreciated the neck edge binding - it looks very professional done that way. Your dupioni is a gorgeous color!
