very nice! (as usual) i keep looking at this pattern but i haven't bought it yet. after your review, i will probably buy it next time it is on sale. i have made M4922 twice already. btw, i prefer princess seams as opposed to darts for a nice fitted blouse or dress. it seems to me that they are so much easier.

Beautiful blouse. I really want to do a blosue that's all about the sleeves, and this looks like a great pattern.

beautiful blouse! Now why couldn't you have written this review while the McCalls patterns were still on sale this weekend?

Your shirt is impeccably made, as always. You do amazing work. Would love to see you make this same shirt in an iridescent silk taffeta, perhaps in a bronzey metallic, but with the long ruffled edge cuffs. That would make a very couture shirt. Pure drama. If anyone could do it, I place bets on you. Keep up the fabulous sewing.

Nice shirt. Thanks for the cup size info. I didn't realise this pattern had the different cup sizes included.

Fabulous shirt, great work Erica !

It is absolutely gorgeous, Erica! You did a fantastic job of recreating the Max Azria blouse. That pattern is definitely making it to my want-it list now!

Beautiful as usual!

Great blouse, Erica. I love the sleeves and collar.

Erica, this blouse (like everything you touch) looks like it came from a high end boutique. The blouse is beautiful and I would get it just to have the sleeve detail. Wonderful.

Just lovely, Erica. Your collar looks amazing.

Gorgeous shirt! Love the sleeves.

Erica this is a beautiful blouse. I hate I just saw your review this morining, I could have gotten this pattern at JoAnns for a $1.99 this weekend. Oh well I'll just have to wait until the next sale. Again, your blouse is perfect!

This is terrific, thanks for the review and the combination ideas. I too find that the princess fits the best. I am a DD cup however, but one cup could be added just at the seam line. I am going out to purchase these patterns!

Everything you make is fantastic! Add this stylish blouse to the list!

I love your shirt! The sleeves are not my normal style, but you're right, I'm seeing this in all of the magazines for Fall. Great job as usual.
9/4/07 9:36 AM
It looks fantastic - I especially like the fabric you used here. It looks like you did french seams. Beautiful!

Your shirt is beautiful... you are right it seems everyone needs a white blouse this fall.
9/4/07 1:08 PM
I love your shirt. Your work is beautiful.
9/4/07 3:25 PM
So pretty. This pattern is now on my list as well.
9/4/07 8:39 PM
Cute! You're so right that it's so much better than a basic blouse. I have this pattern AND fabric to make it - would make a perfect fall blouse.
9/4/07 9:43 PM
Yes, I considered this pattern too, dang it! Erica, could you please put these fantastic reviews BEFORE the sales are over? heehee! This is a gorgeous, yet highly functional shirt...great job as always!!

I can completely see why you'd want to reproduce that BCBG blouse, and you did a great job. Love the sleeves, and the fit is perfect for you.
9/4/07 11:27 PM
Wonderful, as everything that comes out of your sewing room!! Thanks for a very helpful review!
9/5/07 3:26 AM
I didn't know that this pattern came with different cup sizes. Thank you for telling me, I've had my eyes on this pattern for a while. Beautiful blouse!
9/5/07 7:51 AM
Great blouse, looks just like the $$$ RTW one. Your work is so precise, wish I could get half that good at sewing. Thanks for the detailed review.
9/5/07 8:57 AM
I keep looking at this pattern, but after seeing yours it's now a must buy.

Erica, Thanks so much for your review of this pattern by McCall's. I recently got this one myself and I was wondering how it would turn out. Yours is very nice and I hope mine will thrill me as much as yours did you. Happy Sewing, RedGarnet

Thanks for your review. I just bought this pattern and I'm going to dive in and make it!
