***Worth 3 "stars". Def TNT, and unusual.Yes, you could morph this to a gypsy blouse, or organza, or whatever!We all need one of these sewing image bolsters every once in a while to survive the wadders. Very vintage, but new...

Pretty top. I agree - get a good base pattern & you can take it places. Congrats on the French Seams. Great use of your pretty fabric.

Wow, thank you everybody for your awfully nice comments! It's impressive and very encouraging to receive such positive feedback. I think the sewing community is a very supportive and friendly one. My husband says it is because it's made up mostly of women :) He might have a point here. To answer some questions: PattiU - this blouse is a bit older, I made it in March I think for the TimmelFabrics SWAP. Membear: yes, the satin skirt is embroidered by hand. I don't have an embroidery machine, usually I use the decorative stitches on my brother nx-400, but this time I wanted to "revive" my embroidery knowledge... Thanks very much everybody, I feel really happy reading your comments. LauraLo

I remember making a white long sleeve blouse with lace like yours way, way the 70's or 80's. Yours is much nicer!

lovely and I thought you were a native English speaker living in Romania so dont worry about that you are very good.Your blouse is lovely as are the other garments I was wondering did youdo the embroidery on the satin skirt by hand or on the machine?

Very pretty and classic. I like the sleeve treatment. May need to, uh, "borrow" that.
