What are you most proud of? I wish I had enough fabric to match the overlaps on the fronts, but as usual, I did not. I like playing with the ways that the 3 layers of "lapel" can be worn, depending on which layers are buttoned.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Vary the construction advice that comes with the pattern and use techniques that you like best.

I use to wear a size 32 dress now a 14. I know how difficult it is to find clothing and what ugly clothes that hang in department stores. Everyone wants to put our women in black,brown,navy & grey or some unforgivable ugly print that makes us look like something from outer space. Women of any size should have the opportunity to wear fashionable clothes that reflect their inner personalities and make them feel like a million dollars when they wear something. I sew for these women and take great pride to allow them clothes that they can enjoy wearing and showing off. The neckline on this blouse is attractive and with contrasting material can be very flattering if given the right shape of material.
