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

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.

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.

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.

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

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))

Nice shirt. I like the gathers on the side.

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.

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