I just made this blouse (review to come) and I also noticed the armband was way too tight. I took a 3/8" seam but that still wasn't enough. (Are my arms really that fat? I didn't think so!) I am surprised, though, to see that your sleeve cap doesn't have much gathering while mine has plenty. Maybe it is the fabric - you used a soft, silky charmeuse and I used a light, crisp cotton. I had plenty of gathering both at the shoulders and the cuffs. Nice blouse, amazing how it can look so different depending on the choice of fabrics!

Very cute, I'm working on this one now. Good to know about the 2nd ruffle.

Very pretty blouse in a neat print fabric. This looks like a great blouse pattern.

Oh, what a GORGEOUS blouse. I've had my eye on this pattern for a while and you've convinced me to go off and buy it. Thanks for the helpful tips

I love this top. This pattern is definitely near the top of my "to sew" list. Thanks for the heads up on the unfinished second ruffle.
