The fabric is rayon lawn, with little butterflies (or apples?). It creases so easily, but worked nicely for this blouse. I'd never seen rayon lawn before I found this at Paron, and haven't seen any since. To be honest, I can't really distinguish between this and rayon challis. I decided not to use a contrast fabric for the collar.
I made view B, a 4 in the bust and a 2 in the waist and hips. The only change I made to the pattern was to omit the zipper. I actually did put it in, but it altered the drape of the top and I did a bad job anyway, so there were a couple of puckers. In the end I took it out, because I could put on the top without it. It's not quite as fitted as some of the other versions I've seen, but I don't mind this because the drape of the fabric keeps it from being anywhere near boxy. Plus if I had made it more fitted, I would have had to deal with the zipper, or find some other way of getting into it.
Overall, the pattern was excellent. Tasia accounts for turn of cloth with her collar pieces, which I appreciate. What I especially love about the pattern is its simple (but not boring!) shape, and how different the views are. I had a great time testing the pattern too - it was interesting to get an inside look at the pattern-making process, and Tasia answered any questions I had quickly and thoughtfully.
Fabric: Rayon lawn from Paron
Pattern: Alma from Sewaholic
Modifications: None really, unless you count the lack of zipper.
