What a great review, and a great outfit, as well! I really like your addition of the cap sleeves.

I love that blouse! I think it's better looking than the Marc Jacobs inspirations piece. Great garments and great review, nicegirl. Thanks.

Wow, Nicegirl! You really raised the bar with this project. You used stash fabric, 'saved' a wadder (ruffles), drafted your own sleeve, used vintage fabric...I could go on and on, but do know it is fabulous!

Great dress! You've made me realize that I need to put the brown eyelet dress next up on my list of things to make. I think brown and black looks great together, don't worry - and those shoes would look good no matter what.

You need to be on Project Runway. Your talent, creativity and style are fabulous.

Looks great and I love the idea of making the buttonholes before cutting out the placket. Sometimes on narrow fabric sections, the buttonholes are nerve-wracking! -Cathy

I wouldn't have thought of putting the black accesories with the brown dress - it is a such a chic look! Love it!

I am amazed it only took you 4 hours to make this *sah-weet* dress! I could never do it that fast... You Rock!

Dress: 5 Stars, Review 5 stars. You are right the brown and black are fantastic together! And I love the way you incorporated the 2 patterns together. I really really like the way that dress looks on you and the fit is perfect!

Great take on the shirt! I love the sleeves.

Adorable top. Actually the whole outfit is really cool.

Totally rad, NiceGirl! I would not call it waitress-y at all! I would say a combination of 70's chic, 40's glamour, and Valley Girl allure. In other words, seductive, feminine, and eyecatching! The NiceGirl still beautiful as a blond with Matthew Broderick! Did she make that gown?

A lot of 70s looks are throwbacks to the 40s. Some aren't, but a lot of the 70s styles are. It's one of the reasons I love 70s patterns. I think your blouse definitely has a 40s/70s look to it. Good job!

Admirable shirt, love your sleeves the most! Thanks for the tip about lining up button holes (and with pics too)!

You feared button holes? Glad you are getting over that. Cute modifications.

Nice Girl, Nice! Thanks so much for the detail on the review and all the pics - you've done such careful work and we'll all benefit. I love your blouse on you and I hope you find lots of occasions to wear it!

Much better - and much more interesting - than what's on the envelope. I think it's the color that says 70s waitress; different fabric would get you the vintage 40s look.

Thanks for the compliments everyone! Hee Moss, now I'm going to have to go around saying that whenever I wear this top! How could I have forgotten her signature line? It's so awesome!
moss said... (3/20/07 2:33 PM) Reply
hee... it does look a bit "Alice" (kiss mah grits), but that's NOT a bad thing! It's cute!! and, it is WAAAY cooler than the envelope.

Another great, thorough review and a great interpretation of this blouse! I love it-- very different look than the envelope conveys. Super!

Another fun and funky piece for your eclectic collection!
