I like those perfect little cuffs you have sewn and although you are not thrilled with the back, I think it is a very nice feature of this pattern. I'm wondering if you will come to like the back more as you wear it. Love the fabric you have used and this blouse looks like an absolute winner! Thanks for the review.

Thanks for such a complete review. I love the design and fabric you used, so current and flattering. I've had the same back pleat, gathers or tucks "issues" with Simplicity patterns as well. Not sure why the designers think the back of me needs the peasant look also:-)

Thank you for the review-just in time as I have this ready to cut out of some Liberty-like cotton in a 46! I'll be checking out the measurements and considering changes to the back now.

You made some great changes to your top. The back looks wonderful. Terrific job at re-doing things to your liking.

How nice that you stayed with it to achieve a better fit. Now save that pattern....looks like it will be a TNT. Your fabric is really beautiful.

The sum is better than all pieces combined! Impressively gorgeous top as a result!
