Liana, This is a stunning blouse. I find the print and light weight fabric particularly flattering for you. Your Marfy reviews inspired me to purchase and make a Burda with a similiar cuff treatment. Thank you for your very complete review.

Your blouses turned out really pretty. The colors of the 2 you wore were both flattering, too.

Liana, lovely. I like the final one best. But being a teal girl, the first one is pretty cute as well. Love the cuffs! :)

Great review. I really love this style on you. I did not realize that Marfy had a catalog version of patterns so I will have to check it out.

The last blouse is the most elegantly beautiful, IMO, but they are all very nice in different ways. I love the length on you. Definitely a "keeper" pattern for you now that you've worked out all the issues.

What a great looking pattern. All three are nice but I, like you, think the last one is fabulous. The fit is perfect and i love the pattern on the fabric.

Liana, I am ordering the Marfy catalog today. My experience with Marfy is limited. I bought one and have it made up in muslin. I am terrifically impressed with the draft. Your blouses are gorgeous. I am going to try the bonding powder too! Thanks for another inspiring review.

Your final version is just lovely Liana. What a lot of trouble you are prepared to take to get just the result you want - congratulations!

All are beautiful, Liana, but I especially like the chiffon blouse.

Re Becca said...
Where did you get those buttons!?! Those are so beautiful and they look great on your fabric. I like this and the other free shirt pattern as well, I have this cut out and I was just wondering what to do with those cuffs. Your solutions are great. Nice shirt!

Liana said...
Thank you all so much! How very kind you are. ReBecca, I found those buttons at JoAnn's. They're JHB brand.

Just saw where you ordered the catalog and got the pattern free. How much was the shipping on the catalog. Am I looking at it right? The catalog is 15.00 and the shipping is 15.00. And yes all your shirts look great!

sewforrabbi, Thank you, and yes, that's about right.
