Thanks for another review of this blouse and for taking the time to do the tutorial! I still haven't worked up the courage to start it so this will help immensely. Love both your versions!

Once again a great blouse. Yes, this tutorial is excellent - now the many PR members out there like me with minimal experience in BWOF patterns will be able to make this fabulous blouse. Thank you for always being such an inspiration.

So pretty! That's a good idea, too, running three rows of stitching as opposed to two. I like your little walking buddy. :O) Great blouse!

I was just about to start on this blouse but the instructions are awful. I was put off. Then I remembered seeing your first review. Thanks for the very detailed tutorial. I will give the blouse a go.
