Your wrap looks gorgeous. The colour is divine and suits you so well. I was interested to hear you like the hem on the collar as I just made this up in a test cotton and it looked so wrong to me I reversed the hem on the collar and will use bias over the hems next time. Thanks for the detailed review.

Beautiful, and perfect for you. :) I'm a total sucker for wrap blouses & have purchased a few patterns in this style. This one, however, is particularly nice. Makes me want to hunt it down. Thanks for the really great review, too!

Thank you for your wonderful review. You did a great job and look fabulous in it. I have returned to your review several times to admire and learn from your experience. I have this pattern and several similar silk pieces and plan to sew it soon.

Mahler, are you sure you weren't a designer or a model in another life? Everything you make has a master's touch. Must be ton côté français that makes you carry off everything with such style. You always know exactly what will suit you, and then you create it to perfection. The copper fabric is beautiful on you, and so fashionable. May I recommend another version in teal for you. since you wish to make it again? You look spectacular and I love your necklace! Thanks for a great review. Sue

Like Tailypo I am struck by the sudden spate of reviews of this blouse. They are all great - like 100% of the other commenters, I think your colour choice was brilliant for you!

You look beautiful in this blouse, the colour is gorgeous and the wrap style really suits you. The narrow hems are perfectly finished.

Beautiful! Love that color. I have made this blouse and had trouble understanding the "pivoting dots" at first too!

2.3 metres for blouse and pants? That's the best incentive for losing weight I have had in a long time! Your blouse is amazing, I could hardly believe it was an Easy to sew.

Fantastic blouse! Great tip for the narrow hem - I've done skirt hems in that manner and it really does work!

How PRETTY. This color was MADE for you, and your expertise is admirable! And if you're not a model, you should be. :o)

How funny, that three of us were all sewing this blouse at the same time! After it has languished in the pattern catalog all these years... Everyone seems to have difficulty with the notches -- I think there is a problem with the directions. Anyway, your version is beautiful!

Lovely. That color is exquisite on you! Thanks for the review. I have the pattern but haven't made it yet.
