Having made this blouse before, I hear ya about its quirks. I'm happy with my end results but it's not a blouse I readily reach for. Nice job with your though.

Your blouse turned out looking very sharp and looks great on you despite the difficulties. Did you get a new hairstyle? It looks very nice, too.

Thanks so much for reviewing this, Lisa! I actually cut this out in some lovely chiffon that is an unflattering (for me) shade of ballerina pink. It was supposed to be a muslin but for one reason or another I never sewed it up. I agree that the overall shape of this blouse is sophisticated and merits sewing up again in something lighter and airier -- what you have works, but could go from nice to yowza! in the right cloth. I have been waiting for a review of this pattern for years, and really appreciate your taking the time to post a thoughtful review of an out of print pattern. Now I just have to dig out that old UFO, and hope that the chiffon hasn't become stretched hopelessly off grain...
