Erica you are on a roll! I saw a shirt similar to this by Rock and Republic...for like $185 USD. Your garments are so inspiring!

Beautiful blouse and fabric! I think I need David Coffin's Shirtmaking book, as your collar and band look beautifully constructed.

I don't know how I missed this pattern, but now I need it. You can't go wrong with a crisp white shirt, I love your version.

Great job. Did you catch the bib shirt on the cover of Threads this month? Very much in style.

Your shirt is beautiful & the fabric divine. On a D cup, do you pick your size by your high or full bust? (I'm a H38/F42.)

I love the clever use of the horizontal stripes in the fabric. It really sets off the bib detail. Beautifully executed, too.

Smokin', as always... You make ordinary patterns fantabulous. The pattern companies should be thanking you!

I love how you changed the direction of the shirt strips on the bib. It really gives the shirt a designer touch.

I'm glad to see you can easily interchange the pattern pieces on this one, because I'm about to cut it and plan to mix things up a bit, too. Your shirt is lovely, and your great review gives me a good idea of what my finished product will look like. Thank you!
