I'm glad to see you can easily interchange the pattern pieces on this one, because I'm about to cut it and plan to mix things up a bit, too. Your shirt is lovely, and your great review gives me a good idea of what my finished product will look like. Thank you!

I love how you changed the direction of the shirt strips on the bib. It really gives the shirt a designer touch.

Smokin', as always... You make ordinary patterns fantabulous. The pattern companies should be thanking you!

I love the clever use of the horizontal stripes in the fabric. It really sets off the bib detail. Beautifully executed, too.

Your shirt is beautiful & the fabric divine. On a D cup, do you pick your size by your high or full bust? (I'm a H38/F42.)

Great job. Did you catch the bib shirt on the cover of Threads this month? Very much in style.

I don't know how I missed this pattern, but now I need it. You can't go wrong with a crisp white shirt, I love your version.

Erica, I'm still catching my breath from seeing your new skirt and now you show us this fantastic shirt! Wow! I have the David Coffin's book and I love it! It's a great reference!

Beautiful blouse and fabric! I think I need David Coffin's Shirtmaking book, as your collar and band look beautifully constructed.
