This pattern was a huge pain in my everywhere. The collar didn’t want to lay flat, which I should have expected since it’s a mock wrap and I have that problem with wraps. The pleating took several days. I would not have even attempted the pleats without my handy dandy Perfect Pleater and even with it, I was pretty close to giving up at several points. I complained about it in depth on my PR review.

All that aside, I’m coming to really like this belted blouse look on me. It’s the first 1930’s look that I think really works for me and I’m happy to be making a whole wardrobe with this sort of look.
