It looks great. That tailored style suits you very well, and it can't have been easy to make; I like the narrow skirt, too.  I thought you were going to make a matching skirt, of the same material as the blouse?

If you make more of the blouses, they would look good with jeans too, in another setting.  Wish I could sew; too clumsy!

It's hard to tell from this picture, but there's a ruffle of fabric going down the back of the skirt that's the same as the blouse fabric, you can only just see the edge of it.

The skirt is kind of narrow, partially because I didn't scale the bottom as much as the top, but I'm also wearing a small bustle cushion under it, that's pulling it backward. Apparently, the 1890's trailing skirts are just 1880's skirts without bustles.
