mrs quickly, thank you for the comment! I added 4 1/2" to the back length. I determined this by matching the underarm placement dots for front and back and then adding to the back pattern piece to equal the same length as the front from underarm to hem. Also, if you decide to shorten or lengthen the front, then it will be easy to get the corresponding length on the back piece using this same method. Good luck, Barbara

This is the nicest salsa top I've seen. Just beautiful in the border print. I'm curious as to how much length you added to the back. I really like the way it looks.

Absolutely gorgeous fabric, and the blouse fits you perfectly! You look great wearing it! I purchased the pattern for $9.99 on clearance from NN.

Loualiber, Thank you! I've had this piece for awhile, didn't have it labeled and forgot exactly where I bought it. I'm guessing Thai Silks in Los Altos, CA. I need to have a better fabric labeling system here.

Hi Barbara, I agree with the other reviewers, especially Grey Ann,, I always watch out for your and Ann's reviews. Where did you get the fabric, it is just beautiful?

Your Salsa Blouse is lovely. What a perfect fabric you've chosen. I never would have looked at this pattern twice based on the pattern illustration. I hope you send your photos to The Sewing Workshop - they should post them!

I agree with Diane333 - your fabric choices are spot on. I just went to TSW site and your blouse looks so much nicer than the two shown in their gallery!

Great choice of fabric for this top. Looks wonderful on you. I, too have made this and agree that it's one of the best from SW.

This is lovely on you. The border print works so well. Thank you for your reviews - I always find them helpful - you and Ann are quite the pair!

I love EVERYTHING you sew. You have a very keen eye for design and know what type of fabrics work best for patterns and to top it all off, you photograph beautifully.
