Beautiful job, Kristine. You did a wonderful job of balancing the stripes and giving all the details the attention they deserved.

Wow- You not only matched the stripe at the waist, but at the collar as well. Very impressive! This turned out to be a great-fitting and stunning blouse I am sure you will wear for years.

Kristine, your fitted blouse is lovely and fits you beautifully. Your attention to detail is well noted and you've laid out your back stripes expertly. The black organza underlining was perfect to control the polka dots as you wished. And not unimportant, you look fabulous! -Lily
