What a great looking blouse. I love your girlfriends' sewing advice. I think, in today's world, it's quite apropos.

I've thought the same thing - that there is a proliferation of men's type blouses offered for women in retail. Your blouse is so much prettier an option. I may need to obtain this pattern!

Thanks for the review. I too would have overlooked this pattern - the pic on the pattern isn't very inspiring but it looks great on you! I like the fact that you can dress it up or down and agree that it's a great alternative to a basic shirt for work. Nice job.

Glad to see this review. I have not noticed the pattern before. Truly lovely blouse on you. I am going to remember your advice about feminine and masculine, not bad advice.

Terrific blouse! When I clicked on the picture, I almost thought it was for an ad LOL! I liked that "feminine/masculine" concept too.

Lovely! And your friend gave very good advise. I have this pattern cuz I'll buy any pattern with a peplum.(And never made one of them) Now I must make it. The wide neckline also looks really flattering on you!

As much as I love peplum tops, I don't know why I don't have a pattern for one yet. Nice. And I like your friend's advice on color & style as well.

Wow. The first version was lovely, but I like this one even better.

Great advice about style & fabric--I'd never heard that. This would make a great work shirt for my office.

I like the collared version. Very nice.

I think I might have to put this one in the good 'ol wishlist! It seems like a great piece to have in the wardrobe.

Your blouse looks gorgeous on you! I'm putting this pattern on my wish list. Thanks for the review.

Great idea on the bra strap holders. I passed up on this pattern because I figured it would be hard to keep the bra straps from showing. Thanks!
