Here's a picture of the pattern:


You can find it at www.simplicity.com 

And here's my finished product:


And a close up:


Overall, I like this pattern.  I used a size 16, but I had to take in about an inch on both sides.  As a result, I had to bring the sleeves in just a bit, but I'm glad that change I made was fairly simple.  I made it out of fabric from Joann's... it was a Spring silk-like fabric that was on clearance.  I actually used the wrong side of the fabric because the right side was too bright for my taste!  =DIt has a very flowy effect that I love!  It took one afternoon to make and I'm planning to make a few more!  =D

Ahh! I am working on this exact blouse! I started it about two weeks ago ( I get distracted easily). I will post a picture when I am done. I had the same problem with the bust being too big. Also, is it just me, or does the model on the front of the pattern look like Holly Marie Combs (is that her name), the actress? Weird.
