You'v achieved a great fit! I am currently making my first one of this pattern, and my list of modifications is pretty long, too! I hope mine looks as good on me as yours does on you.

Great job sticking with this. This is a very versatile pattern, depending upon the fabrics. Those standard changes do get easier don't they?

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. It is wonderful having something that fits. I can't even remember the last blouse that fit.

This is a pretty crisp shirt. I know there are more of these to come.

You can't see me but I'm jumping up and down for joy over your success! Keep up the good work. Now, there are a million and one ways you can change this pattern to look completely different AND still have the same great fit.

You did a nice job with this. Keeping a journal of your fitting changes is an excellent idea.

Very nice. Everyone needs a plain white shirt and now you've got yours. Mine is still in "to do" status.

Great fit on your shirt! I like your idea of a notebook of alterations.
