I love this blouse! It IS a great mix of sporty and feminine and the periwinkle is such a great summery color. Fabulous blouse!

It truly is a pretty pretty blouse. Style & color. Your change to the sleeves just makes it that much nicer.

I was immediately attracted by the fresh beautiful colour. That's a lovely collar too. I much prefer your blouse to the BWOF version. Pretty pretty indeed.

As always, super helpful review. Your suggestions re interfacing, understitching and especially the top stitching for the back facing are wonderfully creative and add so much to the overall appeal of the garment. And it is indeed, really pretty, pretty blouse. Gorgeous color and so feminine!

This is gorgeous. Thanks for a thorough review. I probably wouldn´t have though about making this just seeing it in the mag, but your review makes me want to try it!
