Trena, your blouse is beautiful and your plaid platform shoes are wildly perfect. You've made small but important changes to the blouse design that enhance your personal style and body type. It'll be a fine base piece, with the right amount of pizzazz, in your professional wardrobe plan. (And your painted buttons on your blog are glorious). Lovely, Lily

As usual, another lovely item to add to your wardrobe. Love the piping to accent it.

Not sure what I'd run off with first, your blouse or those shoes. Since it's not likely I'd fit in either, your adorable outfit is safe, but you've reminded me I wanted to make another one of these. Beautifully vintage with the piping, I love it.

Lovely top! I keep looking at this one and somehow never picking up the pattern - I really should. I love the contrast details on yours.

Sooooo cute, I want one!!! Thanks for the tip about overlapping the sleeve parts to make it one piece with no split.

Very cute on you, and the hints for modifications are very helpful. I think I need to add this pattern to The Great Pile on the dining table!
