Job well done! Pleats look perfect from my view. Color is great, and beautifully pressed. I have this pattern and am waiting to want to spend hours on the pleats...

What a work of art. It's funny that I hadn't started reading you review and said to myself, ooh that's the most overwhelmingly-hard looking pattern in the book. You did it! I love the chambray version and all of your details are so perfect. What a great accomplishment.

I think you just tipped the balance for me too on this one. Your blouse is absolutely beautiful and I'll be buying this pattern (because I need it uh huh...)

Beautiful shirt and I agree with others: it look great on you. Your strict attention to detail really paid off. I too have this pattern in my stash and will have to check for some appropriate fabric. I have wanted to make this shirt but was afraid it would make me look, at the very least: pregnant, but after seeing yours on you, I am beginning to look at it with a pair of slim black pants. You have given me a whole new perspective. Thanks for the wonderful review.

Wow! That shirt is beautiful on you and you did such a great job. Don't know when I've ever seen so many tailor's tacks in one place, but your attention to detail sure paid off.

I've been holding onto this pattern, too, and am so glad you gave it a good review! I've been afraid to sew it because of previous reviews, but I might have to give it a go. Yours is very nice and looks great on you!

Your shirt looks fantastic! Those tucks are perfect. I'm so glad you persevered.

Your blouse is beautiful and you look terrific in it. I have this well as feeling intimiated. Your review has encouraged me to give it a go!

Beautiful! You really inspired me on this one. The shirt looks fantastic on you - great colour, too. Perfect pleats, lovely finishing. An all-round winner.

You have done an amazing job - this shirt is really beautiful. I am in the midst of a shirt making binge and may now try this one - I guess I am going to have to be like you and put my reservations about this pattern aside and go for slow sewing with a lot of patience. I am hoping mine will look as nice as yours

this looks so nice on you. I guess it does not matter for the felled seam, what ever is easier. I do love that look, it is nice and clean. The tailor tacks you did oh my gosh, I bet your pleats were PERFECT!!! wake up call for me I need to be more like you, take my time and spend a Sunday on details :)
