You did a beautiful job on your blouse, in spite of the challenges. The fabric seems perfect for this pattern. I just got the pattern and can't wait to make it now, after seeing yours. Look forward to seeing your jacket too!

Hi Martha - great top. I've sewn two of the tops and the jacket since the pattern came out. I blogged about them but haven't reviewed yet. I'll be sewing more.

What a lovely top! How cleverly you fixed all your challenges--the result is beautiful. Who knew that pattern tissue shrinks in steam? Thanks for that info.

It does look expensive. I'm going to try this, altho I might have to add bust darts? 42D - And thanks for the info on the Radiance - where DO you buy it? And the button is great! Thank you for this review!

This is just fantastic Martha! I love the lines of the top, and your choice of fabric really plays to the design. Lovely!

I love your top, Martha! Between your creation and Terri's I have to have this pattern! Beautiful job.

Martha..what a lovely top! I expect the color looks fabulous on you..we share the same hair color and this silver grey is a favorite of mine. I thank you for including...and elaborating..on your "goofs"...what an inspiration! I fear that the misplacement of the buttonhole would have done me in but you provided a brilliant "save"! What is your source for the lovely Radience? I am a fan of LC and agree her instructions generally provide some new techniques. I will order this pattern today. Many thanks for your detailed review!

Lovely, can't wait for a picture on you. What elegant fabric and you got a great result even with your goofs.

Great looking top! Fabric drapes beautifully. I make a stupid mistake on every! garment I sew. You recovered nicely.

I think your goofs added nice stylish details! Your blouse looks fantastic!

LOVE your top! So classy and elegant! Thanks for drawing my attention to both the pattern and the fabric. What a fabulous colour. This jacket ticks all the boxes for me. Goofs? What goofs?

Wow, Martha, what a beautiful top. I'm sure you will get lots of use out of it - and compliments too. I hate making mistakes like that but you recovered really well from them.

This looks really nice. I know you made some goofs, but you fixed them quite well... we would never know it! I really like Cutting Line patterns as well and her instructions are fabulous.

Beautiful. Love the fabric and the style. I agree that Louise Cutting's patterns are a delight to sew. I think I need this one. Thanks for reviewing it.
