Thanks for the review, we have same size bust and was wondering if this shirt would accomodate me, yippee now I will have no problem driving 50 miles to Anchorage to buy this pattern tomorrow!

Newark Dressmaker Supply carries this pattern - with a pretty good line drawing of it - in their latest catalog. Very flattering!

Jan, I met Kathleen at our local (Victoria, BC) sewing show, and volunteered to model in her runway show. I go over to the mainland quite often, and she asked if I'd be interested in doing some photo shoots. Why the heck not, I thought! It's been fun. In the catalog on her website, she's got photos of the clothing on 'real' people in addition to just what's on the pattern envelope.

Thanks everyone for your nice comments! Ann, I would describe the empire seam as below the bust, but not snugly 'underneath', if that makes any sense. I will be making one in a stretchy satin, lighter in colour, and I'll post that, too. It will show the detail a bit better. I wore the shirt to work today, and it is EXTREMELY comfortable! No gapposis, and lots of range of motion in the arms.

Flattering and attractive. Can't beat that.

How did you get to be the pattern model? Just curious. Shirt looks really cute but I think I've lost enough weight to be out of the pattern size range.

It is a darling shirt and looks great on you! I have something similar I'm about to make - Kwik Sew 3199 -

Thank you for the great review! Great picture of you wearing your gorgeous new top!!

Marie, this is a great shirt. Is the empire seam truly below the bust, on the torso, or is the seam farther up? It is very flattering on you, but I really want to know if it is comfortable to wear. I think button up blouses on well endowed woment are one of the more difficult garments to be both comfortable and attractive. You've done both.

I really like this, yours turned out really good. I am usually one that doesn't wear anything real fitted and this looks nice.

Isn' it great to hve a pattern that doesn't need a lot of alterations? !! Of course, you have an advantage on this one (in looking "like" the model on the pattern envelope). I like the peblum style.

I'm not in the target audience for this pattern but it does sound really good - well, anything that fits straight out of the envelope has got to be good! Your shirt does look nice and RTW.
