Thanks for your thorough review (including the pix of wearing it backwards, and the bonus pin curl tips!) A really cute look on you. I think I like the way the floaty silk fabric looks with this top. I was also planning on extending the hemline, so your comments on two different lengths will really help also. Awesome job!

An absolutely charming component of your Wardrobe. The lines of the seersucker version are so crisp and the dolman sleeve/shoulder brace do make your waist look *miniscule.* You're a vintage Vision in this charming blouse. Lovely, Lily

Really beautiful - I love the silk fabric you used and as usual your great work shows through - you do manage to pull off the vintage look to the max!!

Great looking blouse. I have the same seersucker from FM in pink. You've inspired me!

This is a VERY cute top and you look great in it! I think you're a throwback to the '30s! This style suits you perfectly!!!

I think I like the seersucker version even better! (And as for it giving the illusion of a waist, sadly no pattern on this earth could do that for me!) But a wonderful blouse on you Nicegirl!

I love the difference fabric can make. You didn't make the same blouse again so soon, you made a completely different one. I like the silk best, but this is really cute.

You are so saucy and cute in this! You cannot wear this when we go out. All eyes would be on you!

That's a great version. I love this top. Thanks for the throwback too: I'm well chuffed now! (and dying to see if I can wear mine backwards...not sure!). Have fun wearing it : )

I always thought you had that Glam Girl thing going. Now I know it's true! Love the blouse, the backwards/forwards-ness, and the pincurls!

Love the styling in your photo. I have this pattern aging gracefully in my stash and must have another look at it. Your version is fabulous, I really love it worn back to front too.

Strikingly glamourous, NiceGirl! I am so glad you brought life to this Vogue pattern reissue....the illustrations do not do this top justice! You definitely captured the essence of 30's Hollywood chic a la the beautiful and talented Ann Sheridan

Your stunning photo is a Vision of vintage elegance, and you look positively gorgeous. Blouse, beautiful; fabric, beautiful; young woman, beautiful. Just perfect. -Lily

You look smashing! The blouse is beautiful. A perfect marriage of fabric and pattern and it looks great on you!. Love the pin curls!

FABULOUS! When I first looked at the pattern photo I thought about the blouse front & back being reversible, and you did it ~ bravo on a beautiful creation!

Gowachuss! I lurve it too. You have an eye-- and great, great skill! It fits beautifully. And... I fondly remembered my mom rolling her hair in pin curls while reading your review. :)

I'm in love with that blouse! I hadn't noticed it before. But I just checked my stash and I have that pattern. I guess I must've bought it just because it was from the 30's.

That is a pattern that is perfect for you, and I *love the styling you did for the photo!

Stunning! This top has been in my queue for a while, but I knew that it needed the right fabric. Your fabric is perfect for this pattern, and really complements the pattern's vintage details.

The colors in the print are absolutely perfect for you! That is one glamourous ensemble. Great photography too.

You are really rockin' this vintage glam look. I love that you went all out with the hair and everything. You and this blouse are the cat's meow!

That's useful. Getting dressed in the dark, half asleep, & it doesn't matter if it's frontwards or backwards. Great blouse, and you are adorabe with your pincurls. Make the jacket as well; I love that design. :)

Wow. Not sure what I like best - the blouse, the fabric or the pin curls! I love the two pieces together and completely understand why you couldn't wait for the next Vogue sale.

Very pretty. Love the fabric on you.

I love seeing styled project photos! This is another pattern I've been orbiting for years. And you could also make the slip dress knee length instead of adding a peplum to the blouse; it would be really cute and comfortable with the blouse as daywear.

Your blouse is so beautiful and looks terrific on you. Very flattering. What a nice opportunity to hear the Met's presentation on fabric folding techniques of the 20's. I loved your hair in bobby pins picture. My Mom used to do that to me - but in the 50's!!!!

Very pretty blouse. I love the fabric.

What acute blouse, great deal on the beautiful fabric. I have that pattern and am even more determined to sew it up now.

Terrific. I like how you styled your hair. I never really noticed this pattern. I might have to pick this one now.

Never noticed this pattern before but now I have to have it and I want that silk too! Wow, this is spectacular and thanks for the detailed review.

Simply stunning! This might be your most perfect blouse ever - the fit, the colour, the execution, everything! And that it works backwards AND forwards is just too good to be true!! I'm not sure which way I like it best...

What a pretty blouse! The history lesson on origami influences was very interesting too! Nice job!
