Oh what a darling blouse. It looks absolutely gorgeous. I am sure the fabric is really happy to be made up in that pattern, it really suits it.

Very cute top! (But then, you'd look good in ANYthing!!!). Loved your comment about spending "several days obsessively sorting" your 4(6) pounds of buttons! I've also been guilty (many times) of spending days obsessively sorting buttons and also beads - good excuse not to do other things like clean house, LOL! Thanks for the review.

Very cute and it looks wonderful on you. So 1963 is vintage, eh? I feel really, really old. ;0

Your blouse looks so much nicer than those on the pattern cover. The fabric is so rich looking and I can understand why you like it so much. I'm surprised after reading your review to find out that you didn't raise the neckline. Your's looks a little higher than theirs which also makes it work-worthy. Thank you for a well written, informative review. This is a pattern that I'll be picking up.

Thanks everyone! Bernie--Sorry about that...let's call it "as youthful as the day it was manufactured." Busy Mom--I didn't even think about raising the neckline. Not being a busty girl, a blouse would have to be realllllllly low cut before it would show anything untoward on me. Someone busty-er might need to raise it up.

Beautiful! I love the fabric, too-and I think it's great that you went right ahead and used it. I find if something sits in my stash for any length of time its destined to be forgotten (for at least 6 months :oP)

You are so lucky to have inherited this lovely cotton -- it was perfect for this charming top.

Wow! My gosh do you every sleep? Have you locked yourself into the sewing room for an indefinite period of time? I love what you're doing in there.

so glad you used that fabric before it assumed the status of "too good to use" might it be a Liberty of London cotton? V pretty blouse.

Gorgeous! I liked this pattern before, now I know how nice this will work up. (Thanks for the belly-button tip as well)

What a lovely blouse! I've just cut out this pattern on some lacy fabric, and I think I'll use your technique instead of facing. Thank you for the details in your review!

I realise it's 6 years later but I really like your blouse. Recently acquired this pattern, now discontinued, thought it pretty so wanted to try it. Used a $2 poly fabric to trial it. It went together like a dream. Also left off the facings. Am so happy with the trial piece that I am going to wear it as PJs,
