I like orange and it made up nice for this blouse. Nice pattern. Like the sleeves as well.

Jennifer, I didn't sew all of these in the last few days. They were UFO's and were in various stages of completion.

Your shirt came out so good. It looks very rtw and the fabric is very trendy too. I have this pattern and have started working on a muslin.

Nice shirt! Looks terrific! And I want to "me too" your observation about fusible and stretch fabrics. I have ruined things some nice things.

Wow, you are on a roll! Seriously this is a wonderful shirt style and super color on you! Thank you for your review.

This is really flattering style. Orange seems to be in a lot of the fall catalogs, so you will be ahead of the trend. I think that the lycra content may have affected the easability of the sleeve cap. lycra is a form of rubber, and it doesn't respond to steam shrinking. I would reduce the cap a teeny bit for a lycra blend, but an all natural fiber might be okay as is.

I think this looks great. And I, too, like the sleeve detail. I'll have to pick this up when Simplicity patterns are on sale.

I notice the front centers in the photo look like they are not even, but they really are in real life. I shoulda' checked the photo more carefully before downloading it.
