You can see that I haven't finished it-- all that I left undone was the buttons, buttonholes, and hemming of the bottom of the blouse. I didn't do any of these because I didn't know whether I would actually wear it or not. What do you think? Even if it is just muslin, do you suppose I could wear it and not look like I was wearing a muslin mock-up?It was funny because while I was making this, I was thinking "Anne of Green Gables". However, when I came out with the completed project (as completed as it is), "Marianne" exclaimed, "It looks just like something Christy Huddleston would wear!"
Note how it blouses in the front. Kind of hard to get quite the right effect, however, with pins and not buttons.
Ha ha. Well, I have been told that I look like Christy (Kelly Martin-- I think that's the actress' name). Take it whichever way you like. :-)
Now that I've gotten the hang of this pattern, I am going to start making variations on a theme. :-)
P.S. I love the standing collar! :-D
