Burdastyle Sheer Blouse in progress and GIVEAWAY

I am in the process of making this blouse for my DD.  She has put it at the top of my queue.  The fabric that was chosen is not as sheer as the one in the pick and she has promised to wear a cami underneath.  Hopefully, she will remember her promise. I know...I am an old fuddy duddy :)
Anyway, I was going to write a blog post about removing some back ease from the back pleat and I decided that it might be better videoed. Now, beware, I am trying to hold my phone and video my other hand rolling the measuring wheel.  BTW, I am in love with that thing.  In the past, I just prayed to the sewing gods that everything would be correct, like sleeve ease and other adjustments, because it was always so laborious and not so accurate to hold a measuring tape on it's side.  I found  a metric sewing wheel from Japan on Fehr trade's and Sew Incidentally's blog and thought that I must have one in inches. Any comment below will put you in the giveaway for one of these measuring wheel gizmos.  I'll just do a random generator on Sunday evening October 6th...My Dad's birthday.

Hugs and smooches!
