What a beautiful blouse. I am planning to make this top soon so your tips are really helpful.

Great shirts, really worth the effort.

This wardrobe is not only practical but also looks comfortable and good looking too. I just love the blouses - I think I will have to buy the blouse pattern.

How CUTE! I can see why you made another top from this pattern. I love that buttery yellow, and it looks GREAT on you!

Both your versions of this top look very nice. The second one is just lovely. Thanks for the review!

Good review and the top fits you so well. Looks like a pricey blouse at a boutique

I don't notice the "mismatching" at all--it looks nice on you and fits well.

Yay, I have this pattern in my stash and can't wait to make it! Great review, thank you.

Thanks so much for your encouragement, everyone! I'm really ok with the non-matchingness of the front now - I agree that it's not noticeable, but it sure was frustrating when I was making the shirt.

You look so cute in all of your clothes! This top is another winner.

That is really pretty on you! I hadn't noticed this pattern before, but will definitely get it now.

Very cute top and very informative review! I have this pattern in my stash and am hoping to make it up soon. Your version is cuter than the pic on the envelope.

What a cute top - I'll bet you are saying to yourself 'What did I miss - I could have had an entire wardrobe". Great looking top.

Very pretty top - thanks for brininging this pattern to my attention - love nice blouse patterns! Great review

That is a pretty summer blouse. I looked at the photo before I read the review and then relooked at it. I still saw a great summer blouse. We all nit pick what we do. I see all sorts of plaids in rtw that no attempt was made to match- I would not even give the print a second thought here.

Well, wouldn't you know, this time I actually did try to line it up and screwed it up! As my nana used to say 'blind man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it' The first thing I noticed about your shirt was how great the fit was and prompted me to read further, I have now wishlisted this pattern and love the raglan sleeves. Thank you for a very informative review.

A very pretty fabric. Your top looks very nice and the style is quite flattering.

Really nice job on this cute shirt. I like the release tucks, so stylish!

Cute top.

That is TOO WEIRD, crazygrad! Hopefully you can benefit from my mistakes, and pay attention to the print. It doesn't have to match across the front, but be careful that it's not "almost" matched like I did the first time. :) Thanks everyone! Lennie -- good to see you over here!

Very pretty! This freaked me out though- I bought that pattern to make a shirt OUT OF THAT SAME FABRIC!!!! Cue creepy music now!

Awesome, Kaitlin! Once again, a terrific job! Wish I could wear the cute little puffy sleeves but I'm too OLD! Dang it!

Your print fabrics and my print fabrics must hang out in the same circle. I get burned by the I-mismatched-again more times than I care to think! Very cute summer blouse. Love the details. Helpful review, too!
