Cool looking blouse!

There's no need to be apprehensive about sleeve vents. They're easier than a full placket. Looks like you've mastered the technique.

Fabulous! I always thought it was a bit too quirky, but you look very professional and stylish. Great job on the details and the buttons look fine. Very impressive.

This turned out great, although this pattern sounds like it was a lot of work!!!

Thanks for the helpful hints in this review, if I get around to making this up the info on pleats and change of cf fastening will save time. Nice choice of fabric, makes an interesting shirt/blouse.

Great looking blouse! Those sleeves are such a fun detail.

The pleated sleeves are such an interesting design detail. Takes a standard blouse and moves up a few notches. Nice work and helpful thorough review.

1. You need a snap press like mine. I love it and it sets perfect snaps. 2. I still can't do sleeve vents. I should probably get over my fear and just figure it out. *sigh* 3. Cute top and I love the sleeves.
