I love your blouse so much that I decided to go ahead and buy the pattern. I'm new to sewing and it looks like an intimidating project but hopefully I will manage.

I agree with everyone else, the shirt looks great. And as far as the back seam goes, a well known independent designer, Cynthia Guffey, feels every shirt or jacket should have a center back seam for fitting. If it doesn't, you should add her opinion. I have found that it does help with fitting issues.

What lovely fabric! I think the fit is coming along very well. You might include a sloping shoulder adjustment next time if you feel like tweaking a little more. However, the shirt you made looks fantastic.

You've ended up with a very pretty blouse! I admire your perseverance in getting a good fit and I learned a lot in reading through your fit saga. Thanks for sharing. :)

vow: your blouse looks lovely -- I could never tell from those photos that you had to fiddle so much. Bravo!

All your effort was worthwhile because you have a great blouse. Now you can do anything with your TNT pattern.

Just remember, no one else will be nearly so critical of your work as you! I LOVE the fabric choice for this, and doubt that anyone else thinks the flaws are as glaringly obvious as you do. :-)

I think it looks pretty. You did a real great job with the cuffs.

The fit seems good from the pictures. It's a lovely white shirt in a beautiful fabric and I am sure you will get a lot of wear out of it.

Good for you for sticking it out and figuring out the issues. I often find that I need to add a center back seam in my tops to make them fit. I think it looks excellent, it is a gorgeous shirt.

I bought this pattern, too, because of the great reviews. But I fear that I will have to redraft it a good bit, too. You may not think it is perfect, but from the pictures, it really does look great on you. Nice choice of fabric, too.

Fitting ... argh! Generally your blouse is looking quite nice. I can see what you mean about a tendency to fall backward. Next time... It does look beautifully made though.
