Oddly enough, I rejected this pattern because I didn't think I liked that back yoke. How wrong could I be? It is a beautiful shirt, and would be a nice variation on my favorite Louise Cutting Perfect Blouse. You"ll get plenty of compliments (and unexpressed envy) about this gorgeous blouse. Oh - and thanks for the warning about pinning and basting this fabric. Gigi and I bought some in NYC, and I wouldn't want to ruin it.

The back yoke is so beautiful! IMO you should use that photo for your garment photo for this review. Wonderful as always!

Debra, I have this pattern and have thought of making it in velvet several times but always resisted. I now have to move this up to the front of my extensive to do list because your shirt is absolutely beautiful!

It's awesome that you have a specific style in mind and can change a pattern ending up with a garment that is not only what you had envisioned but very beautiful. Thanks a bunch for helping me think outside the box. Excellent job!

I never would have thought to make this out of a heavier fabric, but yours turned out very well.
