I appreciate your review. I took notes on the pattern envelope and will apply them when I cut my fabric. I will go read your other reviews. They're clear and make sense to me. I hope you keep reviewing more patterns as I continue to build my collection. I find that I buy them and then read the reviews. I should do the opposite. Haha.

Thank you very much for your clear explanation. I'm noting it and keeping it ready for when I put it into practice. :-)

Thank you for all the tips and tricks and things to watch for! It looks great on you and highlights a skinny waist!

Persevering, when tracing the pattern I added 1/4" to each of the side seams of the size 12 giving 1" of extra ease. To keep the armholes the same size I matched the original size 12 armhole with the shoulder point on my traced pattern, then pivoted the armhole until the side seam point matched my new traced side seam. This kept the armholes the same size. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks for posting the picture of you in your lovely blouse. I think our body measurements and body type are close and our height is identical. So it is really encouraging for me to actually see how you look in your sewn garments. I haven't rediscovered my sewing mojo and am still hopeful as a lapsed beginner level sewist that I will return to actually sewing for myself. As on your other reviews and blog, you really educate your readers with your sewing experience, which is helpful and this is greatly appreciated. (If possible, could you please explain "I made the 12 with a little added ease" - what is you did to give the ease?

Wonderful blouse and great information too. This is so timely as I was looking for a blouse pattern like this and voila, here it is!

What a great blouse! It looks really good on you. I have to have 3/8ths seams if at all possible too. I find my sewing gets a lot more accurate. Unfortunately, if you have to let out a 3/8ths seam, there is not much room.

Cute, cute blouse. I think this pattern is going on my wish list too. I love that there are separate pieces for the peplum. Gives the blouse much more waist definition in the back.
