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. :)

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

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.

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!
