I'm sorry that this didn't turn out the way you hoped, but it's still gorgeous! I actually like the gathering in the back; makes it feminine and festive, especially for this time of year!

Really lovely blouse. On innitial look I didn't see the concerns you had with it. The color is beautiful on you and I think with wearing it, all the issues will "iron out". Enjoy!

It came out beautiful and the color is just perfect for you. I think you're right about the fabric.

Despite your difficulties, this is a gorgeous colour and very sophisticated look on you!

The blouse is cute. I see what you mean about the very high neck. It's sort of a forties take on a business-like blouse. Maybe you can still shorten the ends of the tie?

The blouse looks great. I'm sorry you're disappointed in it, but I see what you mean about the fabric and the tie.

Wow, I really like it the fabric. I think the gathers on the back look great.

I really like your blouse. It looks great on you. Maybe it just needs to age a little.

I think your blouse is very pretty and looks good on you. Great color! But I, for one, agree that the HP instructions to "scrunch" are just weird. I ran into that when I made the Fit-To-Be-Tied shirt. It required one heck of a lot of "scrunching" to fit the back onto the yoke. It seems to me that gathering would look as good or better, and would reduce the frustration level. Just my opinion.

Gorgeous colour on you, and inspirational review as I just cut the pattern pieces for this blouse this morning. Thanks for the tips about the fabric choice and yoke - very timely!

I like the gathers in the back...and the color is phenomenal on you. Pretty blouse!

Your blouse looks rich and beautiful and IMHO the high tie looks sophisticated. I can see how a more drapey fabric might look less full in the back, but I really like this version. Beautiful color.
