It's a lovely top! I clicked the photo linked to your blog -- the blog has more detail about the seams and such -- could you add some of that detail to your review? And everyone should know that French seams are called "couture Anglaise" (English sewing) in French!

Thanks for the suggestions, U.Chicago. I just added more details on sewing a sheer fabric.

I like the pleats - they make the top look so neat, and it's just a little different for this style.

I made this same pattern; and I love it! I did the same basic alterations to the pattern that you did! Mine is done in a sheer turqouis and brown embroidered gauzy chiffon. I used brown organza for the straps and the bow, to match the embroidery on the fabric. I also added some chain embroidery on straps and the bow, done in the same brown (tone on tone). Because it's very light weight fabric, the pleats don't make it feel too 'big'.

Isabelle, as a died-in-the-wool francophile, I adore your reviews and the little bit of French flavour your wonderful blog brings us. Your English is superb, by the way. (Yes, I know it should be as you're a professor, but it's still a delight.) Since all my French was learned on the run, so to speak, it's a joy to see what can be accomplished through serious study.) Great review, as usual. Thank you. Sue

I love the pleats on this blouse (so much more stylish than the typical gathers under the bust). How nice, to inherit this beautiful fabric. :o) It's just PERFECT for this blouse. I think this is very flattering on you.

I love this top on you. I think it's lovely the way it emphasizes your trim little ribcage/high waist. My husband always asks why I make so many dresses when I don't wear dresses often . . . It's because they're so pretty and hard to find in ready-to-wear!
