Your blouse is beautiful. And thank you for mentioning the excess sleeve ease, just what I found as well. Thanks to you I decided to go with my own sleeve draft.

Wow, killer chic! While stunning, those sleeve pleats must have been maddening to effect on this notoriously uncooperative fabric. You just nailed it! And can't begin to tell you how beautiful you look in this color. Lovely, Lily

This is on my list too, love your version. You are very brave using this difficult fabric on your second ever blouse, but the results are fantastic!

You made the best fabric and color choices for your blouse. Combined with all the pattern details, your blouse looks so rich and luxurious.

Sumptuous color! Your pretty blave using a slippery and stretch satin for your second blouse.

I love the way it looks on you! This shirt appeared to me as a "weired shirt" in the magazine photo but you totally changed how I think about it, thanks for the review!

Fabulous! The sleeve caps difficulties probably came from some ease being built-in (not necessary, see fashion-incubator, but we get it all the same). And this fabric is completely unforgiving and can't ease at all. But you did a great job, and the results are well worth it!

Gorgeous colour and good review. I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing it. Stretch fabric is always a bit more difficult to finish, I think. Thanks

This is a very pretty blouse and you've done a great job on it! The pintucks on the sleeves are beautiful, and your great sewing skill is most evident! The color is very nice! I really like it!
