Thanks for the review of this pattern. I especially appreciate your pointing out that it could be cut a little longer to allow for tucking in. I agree with the others, the cranberry is gorgeous on you. I'm making this for myself right now!

Erica, I'm drooling over your chic blouse and love how you've pulled back your hair to allow the flounced sleeves to frame your classic features. I hope you realize how strong a statement this look is; it's so much more than a pretty little top for you. Lovely, Lily

Erica, I want to sew just like you one day. Your garments are always beautiful. I think you should try out for Project Runway.

I LOVE YOUR BLOUSE! I just finished a muslin for my first pair of pants and needed a blouse that's pretty but simple to make. I will be using this pattern. Thanks for the review.

Beautiful work. I love the hem on the sleeves.

Lovely top, lovely color. You look lovely in it. Great thought about nixing one layer of ruffle at the sleeve. I keep looking at this pattern but it always seems a bit much. Your version is just right! Thanks for the review.

Seriously great!!

I love the pleated neckline. Since you didn't mention anything, I assume you didn't find the neckline too wide or too low, and didn't have to make any adjustments there?

This top looks lovely on you...love the sleeve ruffles and color you chose!

I too love this pattern. I have made, and I love, both of the other variations, but the flounces were scaring me. You've convienced me to try it now!

Beaut top Erica !!!! The colour and style look fabulous on you - as does everything you show us :) Thanks for your timely review, I have been deciding whether to include this one on my list, as the pleats and sleeve variations caught my eye.

I LOVE this on you. It is soooo elegant and the cranberry color is perfect for you. You really look smashing in this. Makes me want to run out and buy the pattern.
