Well, that was a brainstorm to use a 70's Kwik Sew pattern, exactly as it was drafted in the original. You're right back in style! The blouse fits you beautifully and you must know how the 'jewel tones' flatter your coloring. You look lovely, as is usual. -Lily

What a wonderfully colorful shirt on you and you're so right about the collar. I love KS patterns for all the reasons you stated. Hope you enjoy some others.

This blouse looks great on you. Kwik Sew has many basic styles that would be groovy in the retro fabrics that you like. I like their instructions and fit.

That pattern is quite a find. Looks great in that color too.

Wow, that shirt's "dyno-mite!" I love the color. I had some of these silky shirts when I was a teen.

I'm glad you had success with it. 30 years later, KS patterns still use great construction methods. That shirt is the most gorgeous color. Very nice!

Well, I suppose by now you've already purchased several more Kwik Sew patterns -- as well you should, if they turn out as nicely as this one has. :o) What a great basic pattern that can be used with so many pretty fabrics! Great shirt!
