Thanks for the tip on the elastic. Very good review.

VERY CUTE! I can see this with just about ANYTHING, too. A great TNT!

Very funny review---I about fell off my chair here about Elvis! Would you have used a blue faux suede for the fabric instead of what you used, but no matter, it came out cute anyway!

I think this is so cute! Georgette is difficult to sew and you did a great job!

I really like this! It's very delicate and feminine looking and will be great for layering.

I agree, the instructions for inserting the elastic are tres bizarre. Looks like you triumphed!

Great blouse! Love the fabric choice, I bet it feels great on.

Great review! I hate those instructions that tell you to insert elastic in the 'sewn over seam allowance'... like you used 2" seams!!! It's not a practical way to sew. But cute shirt! :)

My experience with this pattern line is that it runs very large. I have never had to do an FBA and I've added more than a few shaping darts to reduce the boxiness of the overall shape in the pieces I've made. I'm glad it worked well for you.
