Love the look of this blouse. Especially the shoulder treatment. I would love to use a Marfy pattern but I'm too small. Thanks for your help.

Don't know how I missed this! It looks great, and I love your stripe variations!

catching up on reviews: Great grain adjustment; love the effect. Nic eidea to change this into a blouse.

Debra, this is lovely. You are so adventurous with stripes! I love what you do with Marfty, but alas they don't make them small enough for me. Thanks for the extra photos :)

Great job of seeing design potential using stripes to fully use the pattern pieces -- and this wasn't obvious from the line drawings. This makes me wish Marfy worked for me and my small upper frame. (And I know that Debra did this from start to finish in less than a week -- when she bought the buttons 6 days ago too she hadn't cut it out yet!)

Ahhhhh, that's a great garment!!! That's also one of the Marfy patterns that I thought I might order (no time to order, much less sew, so far)

I would have never considered this pattern without your review. You have a wonderful eye for design. Thanks for all your contributions.

Once again, a wonderfully detailed review and beautiful garment. However, I will take exception to your description of yourself as Rubenesque. I wouldn't call you remotely Rubenesque, and believe me, I'm intimately acquainted with Rubenesque. :-)

Great looking shirt. I love the way you mixed up the directions of the stripes.

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous! It's amazing how you used the stripes to turn a very nice blouse into a visually stunning blouse. Your reviews are always so inspirational!

Beautiful! You did a great job on this. Great review.

I am so in love with your blouse! You and I must be very similarly shaped, as I find that when I do back darts they have to go way up like yours; also very narrow upper back, sway back, C-D bust....
