I adore these types of sleeves, I think they are so fun and feminine.

What a lovely blouse. In fact, the entire outfit looks great on you (and I love your picture, by the way). :o)

Kim, lovin' this blouse. It's so polished with a little bit of kick. You look fabulous in the whole outfit. Doesn't it feel good to step out in your own creation.

LouisS - Thanks so much for your advise. Believe you me...I have tried all different types of fittings, adjustings etc.. My body measurements are almost exact to the pattern envelope for a 14. Depending upon how I feel prior to checking pieces before cutting, at times I increase bust or more than likely I will add an inch vertically at shoulders in back pieces. There are times when I do taper in the waist, but a 12 is always too tight. The only time I cut a 12 is for sleeves tops or for pieces constructed from knits etc.. Thanks for the input though!!

Very sharp blouse. The tiny stripes in the fabric give it that extra something.

This is a great looking blouse. The sleeves are very interesting, but not too much for a sharp work outfit. Thanks for the review.

I love this blouse! Classy, a wee bit edgy and sexy. Very nice work!

and here is the answer to my last question! Nice blouse. I have this pattern and hope to get to it in the near future.

Your entire outfit looks really sharp! Thanks for mentioning the interfacing at the buttonholes. Great review!

Kim- your blouse is just beautiful! Love the lines and the fact you didn't have to fit it. Hope your tootsies feel better (I'm contemplating foot surgery myself). Suggestion - you may require a smaller size with a FBA. I wear a size 10 or 12 in RTW blouses but use a size 12 pattern based on chest (high bust) measure and adjust from there. Just a thought. Thanks for the review and interfacing tip. -Louise
