Beautiful...and oh yes I remember the days of trying to get that bow just right...I see the September Burda WOF has a blouse with a bow.

Thanks for the review. I made this one back in the 70's. Great to see the OOP pattern. You look great in your blouse.

I think you shouldn't hesitate to show your students your flamboyant style: the "different" teachers are the ones they'll remember. I recall thinking some of my teachers were pretty cool because they didn't care to dress like all the others. You have so many neat retro items, and this blouse is another fine example.

Be bold--good for you--very nice looking, and your bow is just right. I think I made a dress from a similar pattern (in the 70's, yikes!).

Fun and carefree, just as the pattern promised. Thanks for reminding us on the importance of taking a few minutes to read over the instructions before delving in. Sounds like both you and your students enjoyed your top - that makes it all worth it!

you are so right, the blouse silhouette that was popular back in the 70's is indeed back. Love your version in that Missoni style print - lovely!

Indeed, I have been seeing so many blouses with bow ties lately. I love your versions.

Oh. Bow ties aren't my favorite memory from the 80s, maybe because of traumatic Dianne Feinstein memories ;-). But you manage to make them look attractive, no doubt from your impeccable fabric taste :-).

Ooh, I like your second version even more than the first--the scale and organic nature of the print is more flattering on you (the first was good but the second is exquisite!)
