The shirt came out great. It could be used for a dressy occasion as well.

I love it, it looks great and very chic in white. Thanks for linking to all the other reviews, too. I know this issue is probably my favourite of all of 2007 but I didn't realise there were so many others, too!

Your blouse looks wonderful. I made this too and I wear it all the time...JudiBee is right, I have worn it with rhinestones and with jeans...It will become one of your wardrobe basics. Your figure looks so wonderful with the tie in the front.

this is a wonderful shirt and you did a fabulous job making it! Thanks for the tip on interfacing the front band when working with stretch poplin. I'm about to make my own shirt from BWOF 1/2008 that calls for stretch poplin.

All right, I'd almost had myself talked out of this one but your great white shirt ruined it for me. Beautiful job - I'm really loving the pleating in the front.

You look GREAT in this shirt! It looks crisp and perfectly made and I am adding it to my list! I haven't heard of the Islander technique, but I am going to look it up! Thanks.

I love this style! You did a great job! It's the perfect, just perfect white blouse! I don't do tracing, but I might have venture into Burda-land just to get this blouse!
