Well, you've done it again. I can't imagine how this shirt-jacket could be improved upon. I LOVE those lantern sleeves, and they're rigiht in style now, too. I may try that on something, as well. I would have never thought of it without your review! This top is very flattering in that the armholes are cut high enough that the body of the shirt really shows off your slim torso!

Super stylish, well-fitted blouse jacket. Excellent pattern match-up, perfect, buttons, and the lantern sleeves look beautiful and also very flattering. Time to pat yourself on the back :-)

You Speed Sewer, You!! Another great top; love what you did to the sleeves; very creative. As always, excellent review, Louella! I think my coat/hat came in 5th, that pleased me! ~Connie

Fantastic! I am so impressed by the way that you've matched up the design in the front. Great work! This shirt looks really, really good on you and I love what you've done with the sleeves. I'm sure that you're feeling pretty happy with the way it's turned out.

Thanks for the sweet comments and encouragement. I'm hoping to wear this very soon. I cannot wait to show this to my mom when we visit her and watch her eyes pop out!
