I would not have looked at this pattern twice, but seeing it made up and on a real person makes all the difference. It's very flattering on you. I have a similar body build and will add this to the patterns I want to sew up.

Nice top; great job on those pintucks. (Hate to tell you, but even the advanced sew-ers here say they still make mistakes - they are just better than the rest of us at recovering from them.) The buttons matching the skirt makes it look like a boutique-type outfit.

Cute shirt. I love the pintucks. Yes, sewing can tax your patience, but it's so worth it!

Thanks for such a nice review - I never would have considered this pattern from the drawing, but yours made up very nicely. It looks terrific!

Lovely blouse Jeans. The pintucks are very stylish and the contrasting buttons add a nice contrast. Blouses aren't the easiest garments to sew and you have done well.

Well done. I think shirts are hard to make and yours looks great. The buttons matching your skirt makes it look extra nice.

Collars can be tricky. Good for you sticking to it. Try it again in a better fabric. Great fabric makes sewing much easier.

I'm with Clin. I love the fact that you used different colored buttons. That really does jazz this up a bit. Nice job. I have this pattern too and will have to get it out and try it now.

Good going Jean - looks real nice and I like that you didn't use same color buttons - adds a bit of real fashion to use different color.

I have this pattern. Although it's a nice basic blouse, jazzed up with pintucks, it hasn't been one of my high priority patterns. But now that I've seen your results, I think I will move it to the front of the pack. Very nice!

Nice job on your shirt. I've been mulling this pattern over myself, so maybe I'll give it a try!
