What materials did you use? White Cotton fabric, white shank buttons

What are you most proud of? I decided to use some hand-stitching to soften the look on this version--hand stitching the arm bands and using the invisible stitch to hem the bottom.

I like the boat neck. It shows some skin but is in no way voluptuous. Sorry I haven't been on line! That shows my "vintage," too!

Beautiful version. I'm just starting the class and your top is inspiring.

Your picture has inspired me. I kept thinking this might be too young on me, but you proved me wrong. It looks so nice on you. I love the setting for the picture.

Well, I'm glad of that. I have really enjoyed wearing this blouse. Okay, I do have to iron it. Another proof of my "vintage"--I iron! Thank-you for your kind remark. I just read Jennifer L. Scott's Lessons from Madame Chic 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris, if I may give plug. Surely a Sassy Librarian ought to be forgiven for pushing a book....

I just realized that my remark sounded rather rude. Please forgive me. That blouse looks so beautiful on you. I am having fitting issues so have not started mine. So while I am procrastinating about sewing, I will check out the Madame Chic book. Thanks for the suggestion.

ever have a time when inspiration seems to escape one, so maybe this emails today, means I must get back to sewing, out spring is just around the corner
