I love this shirt. The tucks are very stylish, and it's very becoming.

Cindy, is it sacrilege to have brought a custom made white blouse to the city of Anna Fontaine's flagship store?!? Thanks everyone for the compliments. Now go and make yourself one!

So nice! And now you can tell Mr. Gunn that you listened to him. That is a really pretty pattern.

This looks superb on you--the dress form doesn't do it justice. What a nice take on the classic white blouse.

Absolutely gorgeous. Your review sent me scrambling to my Burda magazines to happily find this issue. I will make note to sew this one. Your version is so lovely with beautiful fabric and terrific fit. Love those jeans too!

The pintucks are so lovely in this classic shirt. And it looks even better in person. Great review and great photo of the shirt in action!
