What a success! Your cuffs look like the perfect length and your blouse is well-fitted and flattering. (Thanks for your earlier response to my question.:-)

Beautiful blouse--in fact, the whole outfit looks very classic and nice. I thought this was linen when I first looked at it.

Looks very nice. I really like the way you have styled your whole outfit with the jewellery and shoes and pants all going together so beautifully.

Perservering - I haven't adjusted the sleeve bottoms , it is exactly as cut from the pattern. Thanks everyone for the kind comments!

I also have this pattern, and considered it a basic blouse, although a bit ho-hum. Your garment makes me see it in a different light, and I think it is wonderful. Hoping to make it by summer!

What a great blouse! :) Hey, I have this pattern. I'll have to have another look at it, specifically the view you made -- it has a bit of a tunic look to it, which wasn't obvious just from the drawing. Thanks!

What a splendid blouse - you will get lots of wear out this for sure!

Looks like you've got a winner. To my eyes, though it is indeed classic, it is also contemporary and youthful looking. (Perhaps in another person, much larger in size, this would not have the same look). I think the widths in the sleeve bottoms and the pants legs coordinate quite well, to make this work as a total attractive outfit. Question - Did you widen the bottom of the sleeve?

Lovely blouse - the fit looks wonderful. You look great!

Very nice blouse and it's very flattering on you. It's always good to have a basic shirt pattern that fits well.

Lovely blouse on you. Glad it fitted so well without alteration... that is always a bonus.

Great basic blouse, Sue. I especially like the sleeve design on you.
