Thanks for the insight on the fabric. I have that fabric in a different colorway. I like the blouse though!

I'm sorry your experience was disappointing. It looks like a nice pattern. May the next one be more successful!

I've had this pattern in my stash forever but still haven't made it. The lack of detailed instructions don't bother me--but I'm very encouraged to hear how well this fit you. Maybe I should finally make it up!

You know, I like that without the collar! Nicely done.

I like it without the collar too! I have this pattern and I'm not a big fan of the bell sleeves either, so it's nice to see how you changed them.

Better indeed without the bow :-). I know they're fashionable, but I was alive in the 80s.. I would have done a FBA though. You don't need it in width, but from the photo it looks like you could use a bit of upper-body length.

I like the no collar look as well. A happy accident. :) This pattern is in my stash too but I didn't make it up because the bow is a bit too dressy for "work at home" fashion. Thanks to your review, you gave it a whole new look. I suspect you would love your blouse if the fabric cooperated, maybe give it another go with a less combative one. Thanks for your insights.

My dressform's bust is lower than mine. On me, it fits perfectly.

It's lovely - very feminine and chic. I agree that it looks great without the collar.

Sorry the fabric gave you trouble but the style is really lovely on you. I've had this pattern a long time too and it might be time to look at it again.

That is really pretty; it's a shame that the fabric gave you so much trouble, it looks so nice! That always sucks when a pretty fabric doesn't sew or press well!

The blouse looks great on you, and I love the rich fabric!
