That is a cute blouse, and the print is wonderful. I like the ruffle and the elastic on the sleeves.

That came out fabulous! The envelope makes it look like it could be costumey (the late 70s "Carmen" blouses that were all the rage) but this is totally modern and on trend. Lovely!

Very cute top!!! Great look on you. Thanks for reviewing this pattern. I've had it for a while but completely forgot about it. I'm going to dig it out right now.

I agree with nicegirl, this was a surprise how you totally made the look so fashionable with your choice of fabric and combining the views. I want to make this if it looks as good as yours...

Great top. I wouldn't have given the pattern another look but I might after reading your review! Love the print you used!

Wow! Your top looks fierce and fabulous! Quick question: Did you elasticize the waist? I like the fit that you achieved.

Thanks to ALL for such encouraging comments! Heatherrique - Good question! What's interesting is that, in my opinion, the drawing of view D has the elastic more at the waistline but looking at the model wearing view D, the elastic appears to be directly under the bustline. Since my preference was to have the elastic at the waist, I did a quick try on and marked where I wanted the elastic to lay and insterted it accordingly. Thanks for asking! Hope this helps!

Wow! The envelope picture of this pattern has never tempted me in the slightest. Who knew it could look so cute and stylish?! Adding to my list...
