It's lovely. I recently had a very similar run with a white shirt too. Among other things, I pricked my finger with the needle and bled on it!

I love this blouse and am lookiing forward to seeing your other pieces. I had a salmon colored thrift store blouse in 1975 that I LOVED...very similar to this.

I love this. And the idea of a 1953 wardrobe. I hope you publish all the reviews. It is hard to love something when it has caused a lot of trouble, but this blouse is definitely worth saving.
