In spite of your fit woes, this blouse looks beautiful and flattering. I love Liberty print blouses. Be proud of your efforts!

The link to "fastened" isn't working. Thank you for the very detailed review. Your blouse is so lovely. The liberty print is SO pretty...... definitely NOT nauseating! Thanks for the heads up on the seam allowance changes. The fit looks very nice in the photos, but of course you know what fit you like best. Your review really tempts me to buy from this pattern line!

Well it's too bad it won't work when you are riding your camel over the desert but for all other events it will be top notch - the fabric is very pretty - not at all nauseating

Your finished product turned out quite lovely! I love the camel imagery, (haha) and that Liberty lawn is wonderful!!

Despite your reservations your skilled sewing and gorgeous fabric gives you a lovely shirt. My Style Arc shirt, Sara, does not fit me as well as Burda shirts but I wear it weekly. Do wear yours as it is a great shirt.

It looks lovely on Freya, the fitting difficulties are frustrating but the result still looks great, especially in that beautiful Liberty fabric.

Sharp looking shirt. I am glad that your persistence paid off to create a nicely fitted shirt. Even ready made or RTW does not fit as well as this.

All Liberty of London lawn is lovely with character and this piece turned into a very nice top. I have this pattern and really appreciate the review.

I think your shirt has turned out really well and such a pretty Liberty lawn. I have this pattern, but not made it up yet, so your review was most helpful. If you want my opinion (probably not!) I think the shirt looks best with the top button undone.

Great Shirt and fantastic fabrc. A tip on the differing seam allowances. These are essentially professional patterns. When marked or cut on the fabric the 'notch' is also marked so you dont have to refer to the pattern references. I tend to chalk these as i cut.

Looks like a wonderful fit, and a great print.
