I am about to make this pattern and I like your blouse very much. I was interested that you decided not to put the sleeve bands on. I'm going to make the long sleeve version or perhaps make 3/4 length sleeves. Have you done another top with banded sleeves from this pattern?

Nice to know that its big, as the largest size is a 20, too small for me. I was going to grade up but I may not have to. Thanks!

Pretty and comfortable top. The color is so pretty and makes it looks feminine.

I also like your fabric choice and think your top looks nicer than the one on the pattern envelope

I like this one a lot. It has a nice, organic feel to the design with your fabric choice.
