Ah, the eternal quest for the perfect shirt pattern! You've scored with this one. Thanks for the review. Your modifications are beautiful, and, as always, you look great in your creation.

I really like the back yoke (pictured on your blog) and would personally LOVE to find a pattern that incorporated this feature. The snaps are a nice touch as well.

I like this a lot! How did you determine how big to make the yoke?

Thanks Ladies! Starryfish, I used David Coffin's shirtmaking book.

What a great white blouse! And the snaps were the perfect finish for this blouse!

I'm so glad you reviewed this. I bought the pattern last week, with the "perfect white shirt" in mind. Yours looks great.

You will certainly get a lot of wear out of this classic white blouse. Nice job with your changes also.

You just kill me with your styling and photos -- perfection! I love the slim pants with this. Great classic with no shortage of flair.

I love this on you, especially with the pants and stacked heels. Nice look :-) um, I have a RTW shirt with similar styling but with venting under the yoke. I bought it in Anza Borrego for hiking. Check out my blog a few days ago if you would like to compare.

You always look so sharp and beautiful! I have not used snaps on any garment in years...thinking it's about time! Great look!

This is a nice shirt. I've seen quite a few RTW tops similar to this in the last few months and have drooled excessively over them. I really like your version.

I love the shirt and especially the idea of using the princess seams on the front and the plain back. The snaps are really nice.
