Sooo cute and sassy! I think it's the puff sleeves that make everyone's torso seem 'slimmer' it's a wonderful trick of the eye... but honey, you're slim already!!

What a nice shirt you turned out!! I haven't found this line of patterns inspiring but some of the actually made up items are starting to inspire me.

It's funny how this pattern looks so good on everyone who has has reviewed it. This time it's sort of romantic looking-and very flattering. I think it would make a good dress. The trick to lengthening a blouse-to-dress is to get the walking ease right. You could give the dress a bit of an a-line at the side seams, or use side slits or a back seam with a vent. Or, just leave the bottom buttons open for a sexy look:). Comparing a skirt on a finished shirt dress will help establish the hemline width you need for comfortable walking ease.

This is adorable. I've looked at this before and thought "cute" but now I think I might need to accumulate the pattern. Beautiful job. And Karla, I think it would make a fine shirtwaist dress.

A lovely blouse and gorgeous you :) I like the front opening and would never have guessed you used some creativeness to remedy a little glitch. Thanks for sharing with us :)

You don't look thin - you look gorgeous! Great job. Don't roll hem by hand (you would be there forever!), how about the roll hem foot on your sewing machine?

I agree with your husband. You look thin. Wonderful shirt. Great job. I may have to pick up that pattern.

Nice fabric. The blouse looks great on you!

Really cute! I think DD would enjoy this one. Need an opinion. Do you think it could be lengthened into a presentable shirtwaist dress?
