Even more reason not to try Marfy. I don't have your patience. You are to be commended for not ending up with a UFO! A beautiful blouse.

Debra, I admire your patience with this blouse! But, it sure is lovely, I particularly like the cuffs, but can understand the need to shorten the ties.. Good review, as always..

Congratulations on your perseverance in making it work. It would have been so sad to let that gorgeous fabric go to waste.

Very stunning blouse in an exquisite fabric. The design features are very distinctive and despite all the troubles, you've prevailed over a less than perfect pattern. The final look is just beautiful. -Lily

It is a lovely blouse in a fantastic color. I loved that pattern when I saw it; but I thought it might be particularly difficult. But you perserved and made it work. Kudos for a beautiful blouse.

This is a gorgeous blouse, despite the issues with the pattern itself. You have more patience than I... but your blouse is proof that your persistence was well worth the trouble.

Beautiful color! None of the troubles you had with this design show up in your finished blouse, which is a testament to your patience and skill.

Your persistence paid off. The blouse is beautiful--very dramatic. The color is gorgeous, too. I'm sure you were a knockout at your formal event. Your collar adjustment paid off, because the roll is just right.
