So glad I read this before making the blouse. Will definitely pattern fit this before I sew, might even make a muslin.

thank you for all the lovely comments. I think the thought of all the pintucks was why the blouse stayed on the weeping chair for so long - I definitely did not plan quite so many!

I love both of your blouses; you have definitely 'made it work' with this pattern. I almost fainted when I read that you placed over 50 pintucks! Wow! You're not only patient; you're accurate. Really lovely work here. -Lily

Both tops look lovely and fit nicely. Well done on sticking with this pattern. Patterns with too much ease are a pain.

Nice job! I'm glad I read your review before cutting it out. I will pay attention to the allowed ease.

Your blouses look wonderful. Thank you for the very informative review - I have the pattern and will have to make sure and reread your review when I go to sew the pattern.

Thanks for the great review. Your blouse still turned out beautiful!

Your blouses look super on you and I believe you must receive the prize for patience. I think I need a weeping chair -- sounds so much better than the closet!

I have this pattern but haven't made it yet. I'm glad I read your review first! Both shirts look really nice and the fit is very good on them.

I envy your patience and wow, did it ever pay off. This looks like an extremely expensive designer blouse. It looks beautiful on you.

Well done for making such a beautiful blouse out of such a huge starting point! I love all the pintucks and the pearl buttons - I think you ended up with a better blouse than New Look intended anyhow!

This blouse looks beautiful on your figure. It's crisp and romantic at the same time. Love it.

6" of wearing ease is ridiculous! In the photos anyway, your tops look wonderful, so all that you did to save them worked. Kudos to you.

I think both of your blouses turned out beautifully. The details appear to have required much time, patience and skill. Nice work!

Bravo for sticking with it - twice to the weeping chair and it survived - great going. I love your blouse - I think you the fit perfected - no?
