Your blouse is really pretty!

Very pretty blouse. I like the way the collar lies nice and flat. I also like your fabric. You have a knack for choosing very pleasing fabrics.

Thanks all for those nice comments, and for that very helpful suggestion, Irene Q. I have also found instructions for enlarging an armhole in a Sandra Betzina pattern, and I might try that, too.

Nice use of your lovely fabric! Makes a pretty blouse.

Lovely blouse! I have this pattern and have made almost all of the different sleeves, and they all seem to run narrow. That may be why it's pulling across the back (I had this problem, too). Next time, try making the sleeves wider - or use one of the gathered sleeves. :-)

Love it! Arab Street in Singapore - wow, you take me to so many wonderful places :) The buttons are perfect with the fabric and blouse style.

Very pretty blouse! I love paisley and this style is just perfect for your fabric!

Wonderful use of very special fabric. I agree that the blouse looks beautifully feminine despite the understated shaping.

What a beautiful silk print! I love how you are so well-traveled . . . "bought on Arab Street, Singapore, a street lined with fabric shops." You absolutely sound like a travel writer.
