Somehow I missed this review when you posted it last year. I'm planning on making this blouse soon and love the look of yours.

Thanks for all the nice comments. Karla, yes I shortened front and back and I went by my high bust measurement. I'm narrow in the shoulder/chest area and for me the high bust works better. Because I'm a B cup I usually don't need an adjustment in this area, although sometimes I need to move the bust darts a tad. Because I shortened the front/back at the armsye I also shortened the sleeve the same amount. For this particular pattern that's where I really needed length removed.

Cindy, your alterations to the pattern made a huge difference. The wheat-colored blouse looks very expensive, very "name brand designerish". Two questions: when you shortened the chest area, did you make the same adjustment on the back? And did you choose your pattern size based on your full bust measurement, or your high bust measurement? (I'm still trying to get the hang of working with New Look patterns, having trouble with the shoulder width and upper chest fit.)

Both versions are great, but the second really fits beautifully. Great results.

What a pretty blouse! Both versions look just lovely! I just might "need" this pattern!

I've thought about getting this pattern - now you've convinced me - it looks great. Terrific job, Cindy.

The first (sleeveless) blouse was cute, but your adjustment really made a difference. The fit looks really good.

Thanks for pointing out this versatile pattern that I've added to my Wish List. The blouses look great on you.
