I'd like about a dozen blouses like this and about 50 yards of the fabric. Nicely done.

This turned out beautifully. I looked at the photos first and immediately thought what perfect buttons for this - then saw it was a challenge to find them. It was worth it to hunt for those buttons - they add to the shirt and its lovely fabric.

Pretty shirt, Freya! Thanks for reminding me about this pattern. It's time to give it another try!

Lovely blouse that looks great on you. Great fabric choice too!

Beautiful shirt - love the fabric and your usual great work! Not sure if this pattern is in my vast shirt pattern cache but if so will certainly give it a go on your recommendation. Great review

Beautiful pairing of fabric and pattern. You have such an eye for a lovely piece of lawn. A good classic look. Isn't button selection the most difficult part of shirt/blouse construction?

Your blouse looks wonderful! The fabric is lovely too.

very nice great fit - I like the white one on the front of the pattern envelope too with the long cuffs shame its out of print.

This is lovely...the fabric is gorgeous. I have an old 80s similar to this and I remembered loving this style then.

Very nice! You always have such beautiful fabrics.

I can see that this may do very well with a silk which does nicely with gathering. It seems like a sensible and simple pattern. You really find some great fabrics!

Oh my gosh-that is a pretty shirt! The fabric is perfect for the style.

well done. I love a nice shirt and yours looks great.

Beautiful fabric, perfect buttons, and nice styling. I agree--this one is too good to have disappeared. I really like the gathers at the forward shoulder seam which give the illusion of a yoke without the overhead of actually sewing a yoke.
