I finally finished the blouse from V1127. It's been cut out for over a year and this blog post had been saved for over a week. This was part of the UFO challenge over at Sew Much Talent.
The pattern guidesheet instructs you to make french seams.
There are fabric loops on the neck for the opening above the slit.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes, pretty much.
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes.
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I like the style, the neck and collar ties.
Fabric Used: A chiffon print from Joann's.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? I might sew again in a fabric that's not so sheer. I do recommend to others.
