I've never heard of Mrs. Stylebook but I'd love to see it now that I've seen your blouse! Wonderful creation. I like how you have made this black blouse pop with the sleeves and the brightly colored applique!

Gorgeous applique and piping! This is something along the lines of what I was thinking I'd like to do, once I improve my skills. That curved portion must've been quite difficult to make so precise. It's adorable!

I know how much work it is to start with the little bitty diagrams in MSB, no matter how precise, and come up with a finished garment. This one is stunning! Love the phrase "appliquéd where no appliqué should be" :)

Very interesting blouse. I think you did a great job. I like the applique and piping. It must have been fun making this.

Very unique! Looks so good on you! As an aside question - how do you tell which issue of MSB one has? I picked one up at Kinokinuya in San Francisco but have no idea how one tells, aside from the year.

LOVE your blouse, and I LOVE the hugely puffy sleeves. :o) I say, if you're going to puff, then PUFF, with no apologies! This looks great on you. I don't even know you, and yet I can just tell it suits your style perfectly. :o)
