Your blouse looks so much like the original but the color is so much prettier! Your method for making the scallops is really ingenious. Enjoy your beautiful creation!

I'm really impressed with your blouse, I have done scallops on clothes and they are a lot of work, the original had perforated holes along the scallops, which can be done with a wing needle, matching thread and achieved on linen or cotton with a hemstitch that passes through a hole more than once to complete the stitch pattern. It perforates the fabric making a hole. Your results came out wonderful, you made yourself a beautiful blouse. I can really appreciate this style of sewing. Amazing what you did to a simple pattern.

Great job - that's a lovely blouse, and I think those scallops and covered buttons really make it.

Thanks to all of you for your comments! I'm still a little surprised that the blouse turned out as well as it did. CleverKitty - I did not know about a wing needle, thanks for the knowledge. :)
