Loving that blouse. I also hate tucking in! Very sharp.

Okay, it's on my wishlist now. LOVE the contrast waist, and as usual I love your fabric choice. Your blouse has a retro-mod look that's very hip!

It flatters your figure very well. Very informative review. Now I won't give this pattern away at a swap. But I don't know if it will look good on me as it certainly does on you.

I really enjoy your posts. What a great looking top! Love the fabric you chose and the style. Now I want this pattern!

Very flattering blouse! I made up a muslin of this pattern and the sleeve band was tight on me too. It made me realize that I always need to check that kind of thing before cutting out the pattern piece... PS - I think you need to take out the first "http://" from your photo links, although I'm still not able to view when I remove it...

I love the contrast fabric for the midriff. Thanks for the tip re: the collar.

Sorry about the link problem! I fixed them, but not all were wrong so I don't know why none of them worked. I put a manual link at the end if all else fails.

Yay ... the pics worked for me now. Thanks. It really looks so nice on you ... the style, the colors, your cute little figure.

That's a great blouse for a cloudy day - you've made your own sunshine. Not sure if this is something I'd wear, but I appreciate all the pointers. Nice job.

I love the use of the contrasting fabric. This is a very cute blouse on you.

The neck and collar look great! I can see why you changed it. Did you make a new necklace to wear with it? Awesome blouse *thank you* for the detailed review!

Vry, very cute! You probably don't like blouses for the same reason I don't - RTW never seems to fit right - and a blouse should fit. That, is the beauty of sewing! Nice job.

Beautiful blouse! This is going back on my wishlist

Love your version! I too had the same problem with the sleeve bands being too tight, and I'm certainly no She-Ra!
