What a beautiful blouse - very flattering & lokks terrific with the denim. The contrasting trim and stitching really make it unique. Good choice of buttons also!

Very fun top. It is a bold fabric, but in a subtle way (I know, that sounds contraditory - but the print seems so traditional, almost Western). The solid fabric is a great touch. Wear this top with pride!

You look terrific in this blouse!! Your background of learning how to sew is a real inspiration to others.

I was shocked to read that you had not always intended the collar, cuff and button placket to be in a solid, contrasting fabric! It looks so intentional and perfect. Your fabric is stunning, and the fit you've obtained is perfect. I agree with everyone else. Show your curves, use striking fabric, and look beautiful, as you do in your artful Project Photo. Absolutely lovely, Lily

I love the plain color contrast with this print. You got a lovely fit, excellent detail on the cuffs and placket and of course you look curvy and very attractive in this shirt.

Way to go making lemonaide from something that could have only been a lemon. I agree with Debbie, don't hide those curves. This top shows you've got some. It turned out perfectly. Great fit and the contrast is a nice designer touch. Make more!

Beautiful shirt and excellent first review!!! Had to reread it to see that the contrasting fabric was actually a "mistake"...I say NOT!!! Looks perfectly planned and very now, IMO! BTW, I've been stung by that "Oh, we're adding the s/a on just this one piece, k?" ugh.

Your contrast idea is perfect. I love those colors together.

Your blouse is wonderful! I love the print and the contrast is the perfect touch. It definitely all looks like it belongs together and is not an afterthought so this review should be the only place you mention that. ;-) Great fit! And who says we can't draw attention to ourselves and our curves with great fitting, pretty clothes!!

Nice blouse and I like the plain fabric as a contrast. Sometimes things are meant to be. :) Your sleeve plackets look to be perfectly sewn too.
