Never in a million years would I have noticed the upside down sleeves. Excellent top and review. Thanks.

Pretty! Too nice to be called a muslin. You made your print look like an expensive Liberty cotton.

Nice fit. This one I've overlooked, but it's going on my wishlist!

That is a great blouse. It's looks very RTW (but better, of course).

Excellent results! The blouse looks really sharp. I've about decided this is a 'must have' pattern.

Your blouse fits you well. I like the look and no I would not have noticed the sleeves unless you pointed it out.

Thanks for a very helpful review. I have this pattern and I'm wondering if the 1/4 seam allowances posed any problem on a woven.

Your blouse looks better than the pattern envelope's, great job on the fitting. Very pretty!

Excellent review and great finished product. (THIS is a MUSLIN?) I was torn between this pattern and a similar Burda WOF; you made the decision for me. Thanks!

Your top looks very nice on you. Great idea for clean finishing the facings.

Thanks for this review -- I appreciate all the fitting & construction details. Thanks too for reminding me of that method of interfacing the front facings to achieve a clean finish! I'm going to be doing some of that soon, I hope. (8^D)
