Very nice! I would not have thought of this fabric with this pattern - but it looks good - especially with the velvet jacket.

I can't wait to see your jacket review. Your blouse looks WAY better than the pattern drawings. Nice job. :)

I really like your blouse. Thanks for the review. I never think of taffeta as a shirting, but it looks great and very festive.

Don't stress about the FBA - I've done a grand total of 2, and the second one was just right!

Gorgeous!! You did a wonderful job, it really looks beautiful with the jacket too. I Like your version much better than the pattern cover. Welcome to PR!

The blouse is dramatic and beautiful, both with and without the jacket.

This is pretty much what I have been looking for to make for myself with some plaid fabric. I don't think I would have found the pattern without your review. Can't wait to see the jacket review--which pattern did you use for that? Cute!

This blouse is awesome as my grandkids would say. I just picked up some plaid taaffeta at JoAnn to have in my stash to have for next year....similar but red and black with a little bit of gold metallic...I am going to keep this pattern in mind....I can't wait until you do the jacket review is that McCalls 5176 without the ruffle??

Hi Linda--Thanks so much for your comments--Red and black taffeta would be gorgeous.The jacket pattern is McCall's 5245. It was a great pattern. I WILL review it soon!

Hi! When matching plaids I always use one side front as a pattern for other side. This way plaid matches.

Great tip Kay, that makes perfect sense, and so easy! Thanks..
