Thanks for the review. I'm planning to make this blouse & wanted to make it without buttons below the yoke. I definitely will now after seeing how great yours looks.

Thanks for the detailed review ... I am about to embark on a variation of this pattern myself. I can only hope that mine comes out half so well!

Thanks. I thought that there maybe more modifications to the front to accomodate for the seam allowance:) Thanks!

Hi Swong78 - modifing the pattern was very easy. I cut the front on the fold and inset the front gusset. Once you get the pattern you'll be able to see how it's done

That looks really good:) I am going to get the pattern now since looking at your creation. One question though, I am new at sewing and was wondering how you modified the pattern for the front so that you omitted the buttons from the yoke down?

I really like both your blouses-even the muslin turned out beautifully!

All I can say is "Wow"--you made a very beautiful blouse--nice job. Even the muslin is terrific.

Thank for adding extra photos so I can enjoy your beautiful heirloom work. Your blouse is simply exquisite; every detail is accounted for and adapted to suit your personal design sense. It could not be more perfect. -Lily

I'm so glad you reviewed this blouse. It turned out beautifully. I love the heirloom look you added to it. I just bought this pattern and had planned on eliminating the buttons from the under yoke down too and now I know it will look nice that way too. P.S. I'd love to see a closeup of your heirloom stitches.

Love the sleeves. This is a good one to play with all those heirloom stitches on the machine. Thanks for the idea!

How pretty!! Delicate and lovely with those exquisite lace inserts!!

Beautiful blouse and the fit is fabulous--there is absolutely nothing about it that hints at maternity. Your machine french handsewing is beautiful. I tried this a number of years ago and have been thinking about doing it again on a white linen blouse. You have totally inspired me. Thank you for your review and enjoy wearing your blouse and the compliments you will receive.

Even your thumbnail pic on the "Review Gallery" page caught my eye. This top has great styling. I loved your muslin, but I am truly inspired by your lace-inset version. Wonderful job!

Very pretty top. Love the heirloom look. Flattering fit!

Your heirloom details reallly make this already cute top a standout.

This blouse is a keeper. It looks lovely. The fit is great and it is a good pattern for trying heirloom techniques - I think I may have to buy this pattern this year.

Your blouse is far better looking than the one on the pattern. Great job!

What a gorgeous blouse! I love those puffy sleeves.

I love this. For some reason the Burda blouse like it (Feb 07) does not fit me well, so I am going to make this one now. Thanks so much for your review, I can see from the thumbnail and the good muslin picture that is is really cute. For some reason I cannot enlarge the thumbnail. But really cute!

The blouse you made is so pretty. I am tempted by this pattern. Thank you for your review.
