Your embroidery is exquisite and the little lace trim an exactly perfect complement. This treatment adds a bit more femininity to the blouse and I think that suits you. Thanks for showing the back; I don't believe I'd seen the back in other reviews, and it's very interesting. With your touches, this blouse is a real stand out! Lovely, Lily

Nancy, your blouse is fab! Ilove your treatment of the collar band. The trim looks great; no one would ever know it's a cover-up.

What a pretty blouse! I really like the embroidery and the trim is the perfect finishing touch. I thought it was deliberate so don't tell anyone it's covering up something. :)

Beautiful blouse, Nancy. No one would ever guess that the lace was added to hide a problem. The combination of lace and embroidery are lovely. I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing this blouse for many years. Sue

I love the extra detailing you have done on your blouse. I have this blouse partly sewn up and must get around to completing it, I hope it looks even half as good as yours.

Love the embroidery on the yoke, what a nice touch. And nice save on the blouse. I'd love to see a pic of this on you at some point?

Despite the hand of the fabric not being 100% of what you would like, I am sure you will get years of use out of this classic and versatile stunner.

Hi Nancy, I really love your blouse. My first thought was, "what beautiful trim she chose". The trim is indeed the icing on the cake. Nobody will ever notice that you used it to cover your minor slip. Congratulations!

The embroidery really does it on this blouse. Together with the lace edge you've created an exceptional blouse.
