The effort seems to have been worthwhile. It's pretty and distinctive blouse.

Its a very pretty blouse and the way the bias bow drapes is so nice. Thank you for the tips on how to stablize the bias bow to achieve the gathered effect.

What a pretty blouse! Those sleeves are so feminine but not over the top. Really helpful review, thank you.

Really lovely. Your version is much more elegant and stylish than the one on the envelope.

Very pretty blouse, Nancy. The fabric is lovely and even though the layout, cutting and handling the fabric seemed to be challenging, your end result is perfect! I really like the tie.

No wonder those little sleeves hold their shape so well, they're two pieces! This is a VERY flattering blouse on you, even though I can feel your pain with that layout. :o) NEXT time you make it, cut out two or three at once -- ha! It's worth it. It's THAT cute. :o)

A beautiful blouse and it looks good on you. I agree with you on the challis, it's a dandy to work with! As always, a great review.

I do love the lines on the blouse, very flattering. great save on the neckline/tie joining. I hate when they don't consider the challenge a newbie sewer would have without a lot of experience in stabilizing and such.

The top looks great dispite your troubles! I looked at another review and saw that she did not cut the tie on the bias and still got a great look. I might have to give this a try. Nora :)
