I love the sleeves on this new version, and congrats on the in-seam buttonhole, it's a very nice touch. Looking forward to hearing about the skirt!

Love the pattern + piping. Looks great on you, seems like a great top for making a professional wardrobe updated and pretty but still professional.

You sure do have those alterations down. That was some quick sewing with fantastic results.

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!

This blouse and your Duchess of Windsor dress are my all time favorites. They are fabulous!

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

This blouse is just perfectly beautiful! I love seeing your creations. They inspire me. How do you make the time to fit in so much sewing?? Thank you, thank you so much for posting your reviews and blog.

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.

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.

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

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
