This is very cute! I love the sleeves and the color is pretty on you as well.

For a shirt you had to take apart and re-sew, you sure did wind up with a great fit! While the gathers do seem a bit pointless, they don't hurt anything.

Nice shirt. I like the gathers on the side.

I can't believe this is the same top you started with! A MUCH better fit on this now, and VERY flattering. I LIKE the RUCHING at the sides. :o))

I like the looks of this pattern, including the side gathers. How do you like the gathers at the sleeve hems?

I'm about to make this top (my first Ottobre Woman) but I can't quite see how much elastic you need to use for the side gathers. Is it just whatever looks right? Thanks.

Lorna, the pattern recommends 13 cms. I did 12 cms and it wasn't quite as gathered as I would as I would have liked.

Thanks. I must be more tired than I thought... I hadn't noticed that the pattern instructions continued over the page (blush). I don't have clear elastic, so I shall experiment.

Thanks for showing the lower side seam. Good to know.
