Stunning blouse, Lady (and with 33 minutes to spare of the deadline). Immediately, I was attracted to the sleeves you replaced, and this substitution has given the blouse a whole new retro, crisp look. You've gotten a marvelous fit and since the sleeves stand away a tad from your arms, I like that the collar does the same. Very cohesive design. Truly lovely blouse, Lily

Your blouse is wonderful Jeanette - isn't it nice when a muslin turns out to be more? Yeah!!! :-)

Gorgeous blouse and extremely helpful review. I have to do many of the same alterations as you, and bought this pattern then started panicking about the alterations. I feel better now, knowing it can be done, and will be following your review very carefully indeed.

Really cute! But not really a muslin, just a 'first try' :-).

Nice blouse, and great review! I have this pattern as a key garment for my spring/summer wardrobe and will definitely use the information you provided about the collar, and close-fit. Who knows, maybe I'll even make a muslin this time:)!
