Wow, I just love the shaping of this blouse. Although it sounds like you had a bit of a trial getting through this your end product looks wonderful. I can't wait to see it on you.

I have this pattern! Never tried it but now I might have to - when I'm feeling precise enough for all those tucks. Yours looks great, can't wait to see it on you.

Omigosh, this is sooooo cute, and despite the hiccups along the way, your blouse looks incredibly well made.

Exquisitely darling top! The "Sabrina" neckline, tucks, bow, silhouette, and more wonderful details, make this top a true classic. I do not find many tops nowadays with such precision and artistry. I cannot wait to see you wearing your beautiful new top!

Saw that you updated and hoped it was photos. The mark of a good pattern is that it looks perfectly current on you while keeping that vintage charm. Great job.
