Ooooooo! I'm so copying you. Your blouse is fabuloso! Thanks for the zipper and lining hints. Just fyi, no need to fully self-line--you could line (or underline) it fully with china silk or ambiance and then handstitch the facings to the lining/underlining.

I LOVE it! I hadn't looked twice at that pattern but I love it on you, and it's now on my wish list... so classy, all your hard work really paid off.

Gorgeous! The fabric really makes it... even if it gave you trouble with the facing, it was worth it.

I made this top too! Except I eliminated the belt. I love this top so much that I bought two patterns, just in case. Looks great on you.

Thanks for the great review, esp. the info on the facing/lining and the zipper. I have this in my "to try" pile.

I love vintage and I love this blouse! You did a great job!

DeAnna said...
A great top, and you get so much done.(Guilt, Guilt.) I think this would be great in jersey and skip the zipper.

Soliel said...
Very gorgeous, very unique. Did you have issues fitting the pants? You must have a lot of great clothes by now!

Gorgeous! I've muslined this pattern and have been waiting for just the right fabric to make it in. Now I'm really inspired--I would have chosen something so boring! I'll look for a great color.

Just lovely!!! I have this pattern and bought some black/white patterned fabric at Paron's Annex for the jacket. Wow--your outfit looks terrific!! I sure wish they'd put your work on the pattern envelope covers :) .

Lovely blouse and great review!

Mochalover-I know the feeling! My brain is mush by the end of the day. Soliel--the pants I'm wearing are RTW. I do think I'll make the pants from the pattern eventually, but haven't yet. I need some fabric with a little stretch for those. `-)

Beautiful top. It looks wonderful on you. I always love the way you pose in the pictures of your projects!

patsijean said...
ooohh!!! This is great. I like the idea of running the zipper from the bottom up. Because of the waist seam, I don't see any other way. This is a beautiful top and you will get a lot of wear out of it once the zipper issue is solved.

I hadn't realized that this was a peblum blouse in this pattern. I have this thing w/ peblum blouses lately - although I haven't actually made any! Your top is very cute (it might be a touch wide in the upper back, but nothing that requires action). Love the clothes you have been making.
