If your day is hanging by a thread, let it be vintage.
Miss Fisher wears a blouse like this. I just linked a photo of her wearing it on my blog: http://calmundertension.com/blog.html under the "art of the 20's dress". I always thought this kind of a goofy, "look I'm wearing a napkin for fashion" type of look, but on her, it's so chic! I'm reconsidering.
I agree, ~GG~. I look forward to your rendition of this jabot style, if you choose to undertake it. :)
Wonderful article, I have one 1920 pattern that is has a lower missing skirt piece and like above comment I thought it look too plain. I think I will have a go on this one.
