Love your blouse, love the color and fabric. I'm so happy that they are featuring more patterns with cup sizes.

LOL@Amanda.Claire! I would imagine I might still turn a few an AARP convention! I use my high bust measurement for fit, which is a 12. Normally, I would do an FBA but this pattern had cup sizes. I sewed a straight 12 with the D cup and it worked like a charm. My guess is I would have had to grade out a little at the waist and hip for fabric with no stretch since that little extra you get with the standard FBA wouldn't be afforded and this is a really fitted shirt. :)

OMG! Your fit is amazing! Did you use your measurements or go down a size because of the spandex? You are so right about RTW swimming when the bust fits. Ooo Lala, heads will be turning!

Thanks, everyone, for your kind comments! I love this shirt and I'm envisioning a little V8747 section in my closet!

I've considered this blouse for a while and your blouse is bringing me one step closer to buying it. Love your top!

Wow! A fabulous shirt and a perfect fit. I, too, thought it was a turtleneck until I clicked on the review. The fabric is lovely; very crisp and cool looking.

Your blouse is beautiful! Great job! I really need to get to this one and now I need to add the version without the collar to the list as well.

I thought this was a knit turtleneck from the thumbnail so you got an incredibly great fit in this!

Gosh, you don't mess around - didn't you just comment on my blouse 4 days ago? And here you are with yours completed! Your's is so sharp - I must make one without the collar now, and I think I will try to look for something like the kind of cotton you used.
