You should love this blouse - it's beautiful and so femine. You know I love those mountains in the background!! Great review

Very pretty, very feminine, very polished! The bias edge is incredibly nice. Off to look through that Threads issue ;-)

Such a pretty top, and I like the cami underneath. Great look!

This is such a pretty top! I can't understand why it's "a sleeper"; hopefully due to this fabulous review, we'll see more of it. Great job!

So pretty and feminine and looks great on you! Love the bias front, collar and tip on using organza as your interfacing. Something we all seem to overlook at times. I think you've found a real winner. Another perfect Lois creation!!!

It's worthwhile to read Threads carefully! This looks gorgeous, and the bias edge is a great technique.

I made this blouse last year, but neglected to do an FBA, so it's not my best look. (Also, last year I only reviewed successful projects on PR ;)) However, I did wear it TODAY, then saw your review. Yours is very pretty I must say. Maybe I need to make another one, this time with the FBA. For now, I basted a small modesty panel into the V to keep things family friendly. Thanks for this great review of a good pattern that's a bit out of the ordinary!

A lovely blouse - well done. The organza facings work well, too.

Great review! And a beautiful blouse! I like the idea of a silk organza with linen and I saw the Threads article and vowed I'd try it on thanks for the encouragement.

Your top looks great on you. Thanks for the tip about the bias organza neckline/ armhole finish - I'll definitely check it out.
