Hadn't seen this review before, great knock off. I really like your neckline better than the original. The diagrams are very inspirational too.

Fresh and adorable looking top Jali! If I ever use Stylebook, now I know who I can ask for help!

Very pretty blouse. I like trying to figure out Mrs. Stylebook's technical drawings also. I prefer the lower neckline you made too.

Your blouse is so cute!. I drafted this pattern last year, but never got around to making it. Your blouse is inspiring me to try and find that drafted pattern

Your blouse is gorgeous! Thanks for the drafting explainations. It will help me when I see this kind of sleeve draft in MSB.

Beautiful blouse and worth the time it took to draft the sleeves. Definitely a keeper. Your interpretation of the AK is a much nicer version IMHO.

I prefer your neckline to the AK which looks too high and too tight and makes me want to tug at my neckline for relief even though I'm not wearing it! I also love the puffed effect of the sleeves achieved by joining the outer pleated sleeve to the under/inner sleeve. Everything about this blouse looks fabulous!

This is so awesome! I love how feminine it is, it does look just like Anne Klein's version. Your neckline looks more comfortable though.
