Beautiful top. I love the tab detail on the hem. You really have your fit perfected. Very pretty fabric too.

I could have a whole wardrobe of these beautiful blouses, your buttons are a perfect match I prefer vintage buttons to new ones.

Very pretty blouse. I might have to steal this look from you when summer rolls around here again.

A beautiful blouse, I keep looking at it, you have a wonderful garment there.

BEE-u-ti-ful job on this blouse. I double-heart the little tab, too. It's all in the details, right? This pattern is a great canvas for creativity - definitely worth perfecting the fit. One clue as to how independent designers patterns MAY fit you - check out the designer's body type. Not always true, but often! Thanks for the review - beautiful blouse that you will enjoy for some time.

Another beautiful top. This will be a great summer top. You are very skilled. Lovely.

Beautifully done! The fit is perfect and the detail tab is so smart. The 3 blouses are a wonderful testament to your efforts.

Oh, so pretty. I love the fabric color and texture too.

It is hard to believe you have made such a lovely shirt from a seemingly daggy pattern! I can picture you wearing this with crisp white pants and looking very cool and stylish!

Absolutely BEAUTIFULLY made. You do really lovely work.

Absolutely beautiful. The linen is perfect for this pattern and the color is a dream.

Such a crisp looking blouse - love the fabric, the colour and the style

Your workmanship is awesome. Your garments have made me get up and sew at least one other time this year, so thank you. Great idea with the tab , might have to clone it.

What a beautiful top! I so enjoy looking at something beautiful for summer while we are heading into winter here! Love that little tab. A nice little detail that adds so much to your top!

This is how I want my shirts to fit! What a beautiful rendition of this ordinary looking pattern. You do such lovely work, everything perfect. Linen, cotton and sleeveless, perfect for summer outings.

Thanks for the lovely comments and you are all welcome to use the tab... I imagine its not totally original, but have no recollection of where the inspiration came from (else I'd acknowledge the source).

Love it, simple but with a bit of edge.

A beautiful top! You've really perfected it and the workmanship is impeccable.

I like the changes you made to the blouse better than the blouse itself. Your fabric choice is beautiful. I'm going to try the tab addition and shirt tail hem when I make this blouse. Nice job.
