The front opening does collapse a bit. I don't think I interfaced the opening at all - just the collar. If I make this again, I'll add a lightweight fusible to the opening areas to combat this. It doesn't bother me much, though.
The fabric is linen from Pennie Fabrics in Sarasota. Pre-washing softened the hand and decreases wrinkling.
I like the look of a woven blouse, but I always worry about the comfort factor. I love to be comfy, and I'm more used to wearing stretchy knit tops. As far as fitted woven tops go, though, I felt fine in this one all day. Overall, a nice, cool, comfy blouse for summer that will work with skirts, shorts, or pants.
