Summer Blouse - Done

Finished the blouse today.  Went to Jo Ann's and found the perfect buttons and some teal thread for sewing them on.  I embroidered the button holes with an 80wt Madeira Cotona in pale blue.  I didn't want the buttonholes to really stand out.  Using the pale blue thread made the buttonholes blend into the background.  I realize I've made the blouse a bit fancy for the class, but I'd like to inspire them to see the embellishment potential for a plain garment.  Here's a couple of pictures of the finished garment.
