I liked this shirt the minute I saw it, but alas I'm afraid of stripes. Yours looks great! Love the fabric.

Love this blouse on you. I collect stiped fabric and your review is inspiring me to actually sew it!

oh, I've stashed this pattern too. I'm going to do the outside panel with vertical, and the other diagonal (shoulder to waist direction stripes

Great job. I cut out this blouse when I got the magazine last year, and it's been aging on my sewing table. Note to self: Must finish blouse, it looks really cute.

Very nice work! The fit is great on you. This blouse caught my eye too when I first saw it. Hopefully it will work it's way up on my to-do list (which never seems to get any shorter!).

Robyn, I really like the stripe effects on this blouse. Love that fabric too. Your fit is really nice. This blouse might have to make it to my to-be-made list - it grows and grows ;)

Thanks, all! Beangirl, I'll make a note on the pattern to try it a little longer next time.

Yes I agree - very nice! I have also been eyeing this pattern and have several striped fabrics (being a bit of a stripe fan) to choose from. As you say, I may not want more than one of these in my wardrobe so which fabric to choose!! I think that nipping it in at the waist would enhance the look of the blouse as well as the fit. Thanks for the review

Nice job! It looks great on you! I love the back and princess seams in this blouse also. The center back seam makes for a great fit.

I really like this one on you! (My only "maybe" would be whether it could be a half-inch or so longer? Not sure, it's awfully cute as it is!) I keep eying this one and can't ever decide. Yours is making it very tempting.
