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.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pay close attention to the helpful hints Christine is always adding. Her experience shows. She's like a good friend, advising and guiding.

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

I love this blouse in solid white. It's classic! Would you add photos of your hand work and the finishes on the inside? I'd love to see the details.

Oh, sorry, Hobo Soup, I didn't take play-by-play photos, but that's a good idea. I am still enjoying wearing the blouses I made. I want to make another with red and blue flowers on a cream background...time for a little shopping at Jo-Ann's.
