What are you most proud of? I am proud of the fit of this blouse. I had to modify the pattern by removing the front pleats and adding a curved hem because the pattern wasn't working well with my body shape. I did two muslins (and several alterations of those two muslins before I found a fit that worked for me. I'm glad I went through the process of fitting a garment to myself and the result is a nice tailored look overall.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do a muslin! (and another if necessary)

I love the pin tucks. I might try some after I lean how to put in a zipper. Beautiful work you did and I love your elegant fabric choice.

Way to customize the top! Awesome! And yes, muslin muslin muslin! I always recommend making one and making all your necessary fixes from there!

thanks! I look better with a curved hem too, I think I'll try both taking out the front darts and the curved hem.
