Beautiful - I love the curved empire seaming on the front. It reminds me of the effect of a Victorian waist stay/cincher. I like the way the v-shape is echoed in the fortuitous sleeve godet. You really make me want to buy PMB (and a coverstitch machine, and an embroidery machine....)

I love it, The embroidery is beautiful! Is it a built-in design in your machine, is it on a card or is it downloadable?

Debbie, you should be declared PMB's poster-girl! I really love everything you've done with "Lulinda"! The godet is truly a master-touch. Thanks for the review -- especially all the pics!

Your clothes always look wonderful. I think the embroidery really makes a statement on this blouse.

Debbie, your top looks *great*! Even with the problems you mentioned, I think it looks fabulous on you and is very flattering! Thanks for all the detailed photos- I love the sleeve godet, very clever "fixit". Great review!

A++! I love your blouse. Great fabric, very pretty color; just embrace the wrinkles. Your embroidery is lovely too.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Please stand and take a bow, you intrepid style warrior. Bravo on the embroidery, the low empire line save, the side slits, the sleeve godets, the adaptations of the previous styles. And the color on you is just "peachy" :)

Great job, Debbie. Thanks for the fabulous review outlining your progression from "idea" to "reality". Love the embroidery - I'd put it on everything if it looked like that!

Debbie I love this blouse. Thanks for giving the instructions. I'm sure that I could figure it out if I weren't so sleepy! I'm planning this blouse for the summer with no sleeves.

As usual Debbie another beautiful garment.

Design opportunities. And I love your sleeve design w/ the godets. That empire waist would be at my waist,; you fill it out nicely. Great top, you are getting so good at PMB. And fancy with the emroidery. I agree that it is a good color on you.

This reminds me of a KS pattern with the structured bottom and the gathered upper bodice but much nicer! I may have to dig mine out to see if I can clone yours! Lovely and very flattering, Debbie! You shold teach a course on PMB!
