Great review of your drafting process. Keep it up and you'll talk me into buying PMB. Your blouse looks super nice.

This is way better than HP! I just viewed your flicker report on this shirt am and so impressed with what a fine and detailed job you did with this shirt. It looks really good on you and your choice of fashion fabric is stunning. WOW!!

I had to bring my non-sewing roomie over to be impressed with this shirt-- that is very stylish!

Great review and wonderful blouse.

Lovely blouse, beautiful fit and colour. It looks really good on you. From what I remember of the reviews for the HP original some people has problems with the fit. A job well done copying it with the PMB software, and a very informative review. Love the idea for stabilising the neckline.

Great blouse. I'm not sure how I missed that Jacket, but I am IN LOVE with it. It's a great style and awesome fit! I aspire to sew that well.

I love it! I really like that style. Excellent to see what you did to get there. Another thing to aspire to with my new PMB4 program. (Maybe you can just send me your version? ;) )

Lovely blouse! I love the tie neck on the bias with the stripes. I think you should sew another one (well, I would if I got such great results), or at least re-use the empire waist part. It looks so good on you!

Really helpful review and a really lovely shirt!

Just beautiful Kay! You certainly don't need to buy $20 patterns when you can do such great knockoffs in PMB.

I love the way your blouse came out, the color and the fit. Your review proves that muslins are important, even when you have Wild Ginger.

Wow, AMAZING fabric and great fit, I have enjoyed your muslin pictures and how you did it, I have never done muslin like that properly, this is very helpful and I even like your muslin fabric.......great combination with your jacket, inspiring, thanks for the reveiw.

That looks really great! Probably much better than the original without more fuss in the fitting.

As always, just beautiful... looks lovely on you!

Oh, Kay, this is clearly a Masterpiece. The fit, the fabric, the styling - all completely perfect. You are quickly mastering your pattern making software, and this beauty will make a delightful entry in the One Fabric - Silk contest. I'm completely enamored with this blouse! -Lily

I Love the technical info, but what version of PMB

Absolutely devine. Make me wish I had PMB and knew how to use it.

That has always been on my list of blouses to make someday - love the style but haven't wanted to fuss with the pattern draft. You've created a lovely blouse here. Thanks for sharing the whole drafting process using PMB with us.

Beautiful top. You really proved the benefits of constructing a muslin as your top fits wonderfully.

Very clever use of PMB to produce a wonderful knock-off of the HP blouse. It looks identical to me. Very becoming--the color looks great on you.
