Very good idea with enlarging the collar. I would have never thought to do that!

Nice white blouse, with a bit of extra interest due to the fabric. You should add a thumbnail so that it shows up in the review gallery.

I think the additional width on the collar is a very good idea. Thanks for the good review, I have the pattern somewhere, so I am glad it makes up well.

Thank you for reviewing this. I'm in the process of altering the tissue right now. I have the FBA done but I'm a little worried about the armscyes lifting out away from the body. The FBA seemed to take care of the giant gap, but it seems to me there's going to be a lot of excess fabric at the armhole just above the bust. I may try tucking in the armhole, maybe pinching out some tissue paper. I couldn't enlarge the photo, but from what I can see, you have a great fit.
