Inspiring! You did beautiful work on a nice "classic"! Thank you for all the detailed information and the pattern envelope to see - very helpful. I'm surprised you didn't make a muslin first, it's such a nice fitting job! Congratulations and thank you for the inspiration...

Thankyou everyone for your kind comments. I've scanned the pattern envelope and added it for those interested. A couple of comments referred to my pressing. I do take particular care with it. I always press a seam flat as sewn first, to set the stitches and I NEVER sew across an unpressed seam. It does make a difference.

Beautiful blouse!!! The link to the pattern does not work. I'd love to see which one it is, the one I found online does not match the lines of your blouse. I need this pattern... :)

Very impressive. I'll have to try your method of interfacing, too. The results are so beautiful.

Thanks for the kind comments. I agree whole heartedly with sewingcanary re the use of interfacing. I note also that the other review for this pattern number is not the same pattern. Although an OOP, its definitely classed as a shirt and is much more recent.

Fabulous! A cool, crisp perfectly fitting blouse, beautifully made.

Fresh and crisp for summer ., you did a great job with this blouse

That blouse is so sharp it could cut someone! Amazing! Ps. Gardams fabric is just the loveliest.

Ah… finally… someone who does their interfacing the way I do. I’ve never understood why traditionally interfaced pieces are the hidden pieces (undercollar, outer stand, facing etc.). It never made sense to me unless you used iron-on interfacing that risks puckering and the like. I prefer sew-in for most things. I like to put it on the side that shows on collar, band, or whatever. It provides a stable underlay of the top layer and keeps it taut and smooth. It also hides seam allowances which can be a real blessing on lighter weight fabrics. Beautiful blouse – lovely, rich fabric and perfect fit. A WINNER!
