A very fine effort and a beautiful top - well done. Thanks for a useful review. I have just stumbled on this pattern - fortuitously because I've been looking for something with a tab front, a style I made in the late seventies.

This is beautiful. I love the contrast cuff bands too. It's useful to hear you added to the circumference - I noted it has only 5cm bust ease and was wondering how that would work out. I hope you'reenjoying wearing this.

What a beautiful blouse! I love your fabrics and your contrasting bands really add a special touch. I especially like the little band on the cuff. I hope you enjoy wearing the blouse - it looks like it would be lovely against your skin.

I love the contrast band. I note you had to add a bit of extra width. I wish I had done the same with the one I made. It is a lovely pattern but I found it a closer fit than I expected.

You have made another gorgeous shirt Sandra. P.S. I wore this style in the 1970s. It is a great style.

Thanks for all the lovely comments. I found the fabric in Ruwi Street (Indian Quarter) while on holiday in Muscat Oman. However it would be worth enquiring at any Indian or Asian stores that sell fabric. My fabric is polyester and cotton and this was all that was available in the coordinated packs. Sue it is comfortable to wear but nothing like natural fibres, which are my personal favourite.

Very pretty! I also would like to know where you purchased your fabric, especially as it comes with coordinating combinations.

Absolutely beautiful. I love the top and the fabric looks divine.

Apart from your garments always being stunning and elegant, your fabrics are TDF. I think I need to break into your house and steal whatever stash you have left. I love your style.
