I know you posted this awhile back. And the blouse is lovely. But I'm commenting on the "self-arranging pattern weights". That's a hoot. I have one too. She loves the crinkle of the pattern paper.

What a flattering blouse on you. Too bad the pattern is OOP. It would make a terrific "work" blouse. Thanks for a good review.

Hon, this is a a style you shoud make more of. It is just perfect on you, I think. Good color, also.

What a gorgeous blouse and wonderful review. Your pattern drafting skills gave you a perfect fit! I especially appreciate the information on the rayon seam binding.

Meanjean, thankyou for your excellent review where I gleaned several little gems. I've just looked up my Claire Shaeffer book on interfacing and will surely follow the steps!

Looks great on you, much more flattering than your husbands shirt :) Great review. I've seen that combination lately in a jacket - princess seams in front and darts in back, and cut out a Vogue blouse last week with same combo. Interesting.

This top looks very good on you. Wish I could have gotten the pattern. Great job!

Great review and this blouse really shows off your hourglass shape!

Great job pattern drafting your tank into a beautiful blouse. It's so much easier when you don't have an "out of the envelope" shape. The fabric makes this one extra special.
