Very cute! What a great idea to make this one in a plaid; those colors are beautiful on you!

Love it! The plaid gives it a western twist without being "too much".

I really like your version of this blouse. You wouldn't know from the drawings that it's this cute. The fabric is great and you did a very nice job.

Just when I thought that I dont think I'll make more than two from this pattern I see your review. I LOVE the plaid version and might have to shamelessly copy you. Where did you get the fabric? I love the colors!

Deepika, the fabric was from Christina Sonja's local fabric store Nancy's Sewing basket and it was quite low on the bolt when I cut into it. But there's a lot of plaid out there right now!

This is one of the cutest blouses I have seen. Looking through a Fashion Mag at the hairdressers was stunned to see a blouse similar to this - but with a Designer Tag _ going for - are you ready for this - nearly $500!! Am still gasping and just loving all my machines and fabric stash

Look at you, right on trend with your fall plaid! Great pattern choice for the fabric.

Ooooo, I love the seaming detail through the bodice on this blouse. It has kind of a western vibe to it, which I love. And HOW 'BOUT THEM BOOTS? :O) GREAT look on you! Have you looked on Michael's Fabrics lately? I know they had a whole bunch of shirting samples they sent out recently. Of course, now I can't remember if there were any plaids, but I DO know the quality was very nice.

I was so confused about the button bands, I think my english magazine version is very poorly translated. Thanks for mentioning the "hidden" part in your review, now I completely understand the instructions hardly explain it at all!

What an amazing shirt! I LOVE the fabric choice and the bias yoke! I wish I had this issue!

Really cute! I've been eyeing this pattern ever since the Burda WOF issue came out. Further incentive to actually make it myself!

why of why do you not have a blog. I'd be your first follower. Really, you should. I love your sewing. This shirt is too cute.
