Good to see your review of this pattern - one of my favorites. I'm about to make another and really like your fabric. Where did you find it? Nice job with the alterations. Enjoy your blouse!

How brilliant of you to check out the 1-4 size to see how they compared. I have to add on my pattern for hips, glad I have a guide. Thanks for the review. I really like your fabric and how the top came out. Can't wait to see it in person.

Wonderfully wrought, thanks for the explanations of your alterations and investigations into Silhouettes' sizing differences.

This blouse has been mentioned a lot on the boards this week. Yours turned out really great! I like the lines in the style.

Thanks. It is really easy to put together. I like the fabric, but can't recommend the vendor. It came with sample stamped all over one side and I had to cut around the sample stamps.

Thank you for explaining the differences you found in the 2 size groups. Confused the daylights out of me when I used another Silhouette pattern! Your alterations sound very similar to the ones I had to do, so I don't feel quite so troll-like now. You've made a perfect summer shirt in a gorgeous color.

Very pretty. I have not tried one of these patterns, but have been tempted by this one. Thanks for all the details.

Aren't you cleaver? I never thought to compare the plus size body parts to the regular size pieces --- now that I know, I'll redraft the body of my pattern for the next run. Thanks for a very helpful reivew ... the fabric and color of your blouse are outstanding.

You are one very talented and clever woman! Love your blouse and fitting, problem solving skills!

Can you be more specific about the collar and what it was that you didn't like? Is it the type of collar or the way it goes on? Why did you have to do so many alterations? Did you make this pattern as is first or do you automatically do all these alterations. I like the look of this blouse but my alterations always seem to make things worse so I don't want to bother with it if it really needs all this work. I cannot get a blouse to fit at all and I can't find anyine who knows how to help me.

Your blouse is so nice! I'm jazzed again about this pattern. Thanks for revealing your very clever comparison between sizing groups, who'da thunk it?
