What a cute pattern - love the flip hair-dos and your result is lovely. I'm about to embark on an eyelet project. I may use some of your techniques. Thanks.

I had forgotten that patterns used ot have drawings of the pattern pieces on the back. I wonder when it changed?

Tee hee! I just added an "eyelet" tag to your review Kay. I'm glad you illusrated the 1/2 organza-1/2 fabric facing. I thought about doing that but didn't, for some reason.

How do you like that 50 cents price tag on that pattern? :o) I can vaguely remember those days. :o) This blouse is beautiful. Like you, I love the big flowers in the eyelet fabric. I recently bought some red eyelet fabric, and I was trying to figure how I'd do the facing, since I didn't want the interfacing to show thruogh. I bought some red broadcloth, and I was thinking I would fuse interfacing to that and use that in the facings. Now that I see yours with just the organza, I don't see why I'd have to, though. I should be able to use just the broadcloth. Thanks for the great review!

Lovely blouse. I like the front facing treatment you did for a nice finished look.

Talk about a classic design: this is IT! Your fabric choice updates it completely and the fit is beautiful. Can't wait to see what you do with it next year.

Wonderful blouse, in one of the most beautiful eyelets I've seen (don't see these fabrics used here yet!)

You found the perfect pattern to showcase that lovely eyelet. Thanks for the facing tips.

Definitely a classic. I wasn't expecting a vintage pattern based on your top. (I get a kick out of the stylized sloped shoulders in the pattern drawing.) Beautiful top.

I missed your great review earlier. Who would have thought this was a vintage pattern at first glance? Lovely blouse and a keeper for sure.

Your finishing touches are always done to perfection. The blouse looks great on you. Aren't those funny little drawings on the pattern envelope with the women who all look like they need shoulder implants? Was it every "in style" to be sloped-shouldered?
