I love your blouse. Perfect fabric choice. Thanks for the heads up on the sizing.

Your rendition of this pattern is a big hit and rightly so. I'm not sure why you say blouses are your nemesis -- This one is terrific.

Patti, I love it. Louise's Perfect Blouse pattern is one of my favorites, and I'll bet I'll like this one just as enabler, you. Great marriage of pattern and fabric!

DorothyK, the fabric was from Lorraine Torrence at Puyallup several years ago. Louise said that she carried it at one time as well but it's OP now. Fun stuff!

That's really nice, and I would say an ambitious project which fits great.

You really aced this one. Perfect pattern, perfect fabric, perfect fit. The fabric is spectacular and really makes this a unique item. Where did you get this fabric?

Your blouse is just stunning! I love how you've used the two fabrics. And it sounds like you've mastered the sizing - the Small certainly looks like a beautiful fit.

I absolutely love this shirt! The fabric choices made this a real work of art. Everything about your shirt speaks to me.

This is beautiful. I'm going to remember the pieced sleeves - you used them to great effect.

A cool shirt.

It wasn't until I read your review that I realised why I focused on the body of the blouse that much, with the plain fabric in the sleeves. What a brilliant solution to the shortage of fabric problem, as though it was meant to be all the time. Love the blouse and the fabric, and your smile says it all.

Patti--This is beautiful and your solution on the sleeve looks stylish, not improvised in any way. Love it. See you soon!
