I loved reading your review with the detailed descriptions and photos of your fitting adjustments. Your first Marfy is certainly a success - looks great on you!

I love this. Your fit alterations really made this fit you perfectly. Welcome to the Marfy addiction.

Thank you ladies for your lovely comments. FreyaStark, I purchased the Marfy 2010/11 Catalogue early this year and this is one of the 10 free patterns that comes with the Catalogue. vwgrant, it is my left sleeve and yes it is the F to B rotation.

Very flattering blouse. I love the ties.

Lovely blouse, Sharon! And thank you for carefully explaining all the changes to your pattern. When you say "move back 1" on the sleeve" are you talking F to B rotation or hanging the sleeve higher up the shoulder seam? And which sleeve? I'm not seeing where the problem is.

Very nice. Congratulations on your first Marfy. I am sure you will get lots of compliments when you wear this, and its successors. This is a very cute shirt on you.

A gorgeous and distinctive blouse, but how did you obtain the pattern? (Marfy patterns are not sold in Australia.)
