What a great version of this top. Love the pintucks and the flat felled seams. Beautiful top. Well done.

Very pretty top. Don't you love the fit through the body? I made this blouse and never reviewed it, but I will try to soon. The key for success is probably using a soft enough fabric, as you have done. It looks lovely on you. I agree with you and joanico that the sleeve may need reworking.

I tried this pattern last year and failed - stiff fabric doesn't work. You nailed it with the lightweight polka dot cotton. It looks fantastic and very professionally done.

Very nice! I'm thinking of trying this one. Your flat felled seams really add polish.

What a beautiful, beautiful top! And what a fantastic choice of fabric! I made view D of this top a few months ago (never posted a review, shame on me...). I would like to warn others that the top of the sleves is quite narrow. Make sure you fit it before you cut!
