Oh my, this is gorgeous! I found your review when looking for a review of the dress in this pattern, and I had to look again to see that this was indeed the same blouse from this set. WAY better than the pattern pic! I might have to actually make the blouse too.

Your blouse is stunningly beautiful! The color and everything about it is gorgeous. Excellent review.

The fabric hardly even hit your stash, so you get a waiver on it. :) Cognrats on your pretty blouose, and glad the pattern went together well for you.

This is soo pretty, Lisa! I love the style. It's just perfect for the richly colored fabric that you used! I love this blouse! Em

Oh, I loved the 80s, too. If I ever get to go back, I'll want to take this blouse with me. Using the narrow hem foot is a good suggestion for the jabot. BTW a grey or black skirt will go very well with this blouse.

Wow. Luxe fabric, eye catching syle, and impeccable workmanship -- this blouse has it all.

I love the ruffle. In fact I love the whole sleek and beautiful blouse. Your cuff and front band construction sound much more sensible than the pattern instructions.

You're obviously a brilliant sewer; better finished look than high-end RTW!! Good technique on the front band, FAR more professional. Thanks for all the tips.

The 80's should have looked this great! I adore the gentle cascading ruffles of the jabot and that enticing color! Please post a picture of you modeling this lovely top!

What a great color! Your blouse is beautiful. Thanks for the info on the front band.
