Your changes make this blouse exceptional! Well done!

I saw this shirt in the latest Threads mag (on a small-ish woman...) but absolutely loved the 'look'. On checking the pattern site I saw that I HAD seen this pattern before but overlooked it as not right for me (same size as you). Now I have completely fallen for it. Your review is wonderful, and the alterations you made (esp. the back- thanks for that!) give me hope. You do generously built women proud!

Great job!! I love your changes! It's absolutely adorable. This is one for my to-do list! Thanks for sharing.

This looks great on you and I like what you did to the back and the length. Great job!

Beautiful on you and love the added back tucks. I'm working on this right now but missed your review. So I struggled with the collar and the extra piece until I looked back at the cutting layout! Silly extra piece. Did you have trouble with your tucks puckering? Mine are but I've decided I can live with it as a design element. My fabric is also 100% cotton but may be lighter weight than yours.

Fabulous shirt. Great idea to add the tucks to the back. Your revised length is very flattering.

I'm SO glad you posted a review of this shirt! I'm working on it right now, and it's good to know that the back would be a pup tent without the added tucks. It adds a very stunning design detail! Elegant solution. LOVE it.

Great photos! Especially liked the addition of tucks to the back of the shirt.

That was a very clever idea for the back!

I love the modification you made. I will pick up the pattern soon. Great blouse to add to your wardrobe.

Oh, my goodness. You did a great job with all those pleats.

Thanks for the detailed review! I bought this pattern because I love pinpleats, but was a little intimidated to start it. Love what you did with the back.

Oh my this shirt is TDF. You look fabulous.

Beautiful blouse! It looks fabulous on you. Nice work with all those pleats and modifications for a perfect fit.

Love this! Your modifications have made this pattern sing. Now I have another Vogue to add to my list :-)

Fabulous! Look at Vogue 1061 and you can see where those tiny pleats came from. You gotta love Sandra, she takes something great to a whole nutha' level.

You're version is gorgeous, much nicer than the pattern photo! I also love what you did with the back, it adds balance to the detail on the front. This is one of the most beautiful button-up shirts I have ever seen!

Kudos for sewing a blouse with so many pleats!! I think straight vertical pleats don't work if you have curves, but I agree that Sandra has made a pleated shirt that looks terrific on real figures! You look smashing in this shirt, and I love the turned up collar. These are great for me and my long long neck. Beautiful work!!

I love the changes you made, particularly to the back. Your shirt looks fantastic on you.

I love this blouse!!! It looks so good on you. I can't wait to make it myself. Great job.

This is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for this review. I have this pattern and can't wait to get at it. You've done a beautiful job.

Oh boy what a terrific shirt. I think it looks much better than Vogue's version.

Gorgeous blouse! I had my doubts when I saw this pattern that this would work on a curvy figure, but it looks fabulous on you!

Really nice!

Oops, now I can see your pictures! Great save you did with the back, and it makes the top that much more interesting. Good job! Thanks for posting this review.

I've been waiting for a review of this blouse -- I love it! Nice to know that all those pleats aren't too much over the bust.
Longarm said... (2/18/10 10:59 PM) Reply
Your blouse sounds just great and the pattern is certainly very appealing. None of your Picassa pictures would click open for me, however.
