What a neat idea with the plaid. Nice, feminine looking shirt.

Gorgeous blouse and great fit. I especially like the contrast of the buttons against the lighter fabric. Very cool.

Very cute! I love how you placed the plaid bib on the bias!

Gorgeous! It took a good eye to realize how terrific the fabric would look with that pattern. I like what you did with the yoke.

I do in fact love this blouse with this fabric and am a wee bit sorry I donated it to the cause. But, you look terrific and have inspired me to make it up in another fabric.

The yoke on the bias is a great touch, what a great shirt.

I've been planning to make this since the January issue came out. Why haven't I done it yet - it's adorable! Love the bias yoke and yes, that's definitely a great collar.

SO cute! ^-^ this shirt is on my list like forever. after your version turned out so lovely I think I should finally give it a go.

It's all about knowing what to do with the fabric! I didn't realize that BWOF went down to a size 34. This is a great style, and I agree it can be fun & flirty while still being professional. Makes me think I should get this issue.

So cute! You did a fantastic job on this blouse. I say it's time to change your skill level to "advanced."

Beautiful blouse on you, of course it helps to have your petite figure, not sure if it would look so good on me! But yet another inspirational sewing project from you Nicegirl!

You always seem to pick the right choice of patterns and fabrics. Another top that looks fabulous on you. Well done.

I loved this blouse from the moment I saw it. It's flattering and very 'you'. You should sew another one at some point.

Great blouse! I love the fabric cut on the bias for the yoke.

Great photos on Cidell's part, and such a pretty subject to work with. :o) This blouse has turned out perfectly, and it has a very flattering fit. Isn't that funny that oftentimes the fabric you think you're going to like the least, you end up liking the best (and vice versa)?

BEAUTIFUL job as usual. Love the bias yoke. Nice work.

Wonderful and unique blouse. Yes, your collar is pristine and adds a great deal to the crispness of your blouse. Love the bias treatment on the bib; very upscale. It's the oversize, darker buttons that take it to the next level for me. And Cidell has captured you and your creation beautifully; your Project Photo is magazine worthy. Lovely, Lily
