I redid the sleeve plackets--still not perfect, but "good enough" that I will not be self conscious wearing it! It is done save the buttons and button holes. Since I'm not sure what buttons I'll use, I am waiting to make the button holes.
Thanks for the encouragement I received! I do think I will enjoy the blouse.
I must give kudos to Lori at Girls in the Garden--I read her entries and didn't use the Burda directions much! I made a size 40 and it is roomy, but that's much better than too tight!
