AWESOME blouse, Christa. I can't WAIT to see it on you. It's just your colors, and SOOOOOOO very nicely made, INSIDE AND OUT. CONGRATULATIONS on receiving your THIRD STAR, too. :o) Those favorites just KEEP A' CLIMBIN'. It's starting to really tick me off. Heh-heh-heh.

I somehow managed to miss this pattern and hope it's still in print. You have sold me on the fit and shape and I want to run out and buy it. Such lovely fabric and perfect sewing.

Beautiful blouse, Christa. I can just "see" your pretty figure in the lovely blouse. I especially like all your precise details in the final product and the insides looks just as pretty as the outsides. This is another winner from you.
