Your neckline alteration looks great- really flattering! I plan to make this pattern and I'll be using your alteration tip. Thanks!

I thought the original neckline looked great; but I now see how your alteration improved the look and I will add this knowledge to my future sewing of peasant style necklines. Thanks! You always achieve such great fit with your garments.

Definitely, the lower neckline seems to work better with this style -- and really suits you. Well done. :)

The lowered neckline is a great improvement even though it looked cute as is.

So cute, Amanda! I have a piece of black eyelet that I'm just waiting for the perfect pattern to say "make me" to use it for! Your work is perfect, as always!

Wow! You really have a great eye for what looks good - I loved your original version but you are spot on with the new neckline because it does look better - this is such a perfect outfit!

That's the kind of accidents I like! This looks like a made-to-go-together set. The trim that you added is so cute. I've never seen any like that. BEAUTIFUL work, as always.

It's nice to see a peasant blouse that has more fitting to it. Love your red trim!
