Love it! I'm scared of button fronts, but you have inspired me to try it!

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

[email protected]! 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'm really glad I bought this pattern. I never wear blouses but all the reviews for this are so good. Yours is super ! The fit is spot on!

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.
