Very useful review and now that I see how the belt sets off the flounced, I'm sold. This was a great BWOF issue, and after I finish the safari sack dress, maybe I'll follow your lead. Thanks for the photo of the zipper end. Very useful.

Great review and lovely blouse. Your zip looks fine, but I wonder why they didn't have you put it in so it would zip up from the bottom? That would give you more room to get in and out.

Aaack! Melted polyester! I have this vivid memory of melting the floppy necktie that was part of my junior high school uniform during an ironing session; my mom made me wear it for the rest of the semester anyway because money was tight. :) Your blouse is really flattering and lovely. Much more so than anything I wore to private school in junior high.

Billie Jean, it does zip up from the bottom. You are looking at the zipper pull just underneath the armpit.

I like this! Very different from other blouses, but in a very RTW way.

Cindy, my jaw dropped when I saw your picture - what a cute top!! The color is great, and I like it with the belt.
