I looked through many of the projects you've posted on your website and I am really impressed. You are really talented! Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks for the review. I've looked at this pattern several times and wondered if it was good. Your shirt looks great, BTW.

Very nicely made, Nikki. It didn't seem very loose-fitting so I started looking at your photo and the pattern photo more closely and did see the dropped shoulder. This closer examination made me wonder whether the draping from your shoulder to shoulder is caused by the crispness of the material or by the smaller neck. I just picked up some striped cotton shirting too and am inspired.

Haha, I didn't even notice that there were supposed to be shoulder pads, I guess I wasn't really looking at the instructions. No, I didn't use them - why would you want shoulder pads in a shirt of this style? Luckylibbet, I'd say go ahead and try it, maybe in an inexpensive fabric first, and/or with a helpful book like DPC's _Shirtmaking_

Nice, classic shirt! It looks good on you. You are right, those are some big pockets!

Nice looking shirt Nikki - another one to add to my stash!! Thanks for such a helpful review.

Great shirt! Would you recommend this pattern to someone who's an experienced sewist, but never has done classic shirts? I'm wondering if I should try this one... I love all the collar variations.

Looks like you decided not to put in the shoulder pads? It's amazing that with a pattern for a shirt that is this classic they don't put in a regular placket at the sleeve cuff. great review, thanks

You look great in this blouse. After the adjustment you want to make it looks like a great pattern to use again and again.

Nice blouse, Nikki! It looks like it would be a very versatile wardrobe staple.

Well done, Nikki. Looks very professional. Did you omit the shoulder pads? It looks like it in the picture.
