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.

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.

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

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

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 ;)

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!).

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.

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

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