Love the way you tamed your fabric into submission! The ruffle shape is very flattering. Pleating rather than gathering was a good idea.

I love this fabric! I don't know how it looked before the treatment (I love emerald), but now it is just perfect! I also like all the changes you made to the pattern. And the buttons of course. Overall, very pretty shirt!!

LOVE IT!!! You're right - pleating the ruffle instead of gathering it and pressing it well makes vive la difference. You are way more courageous than I would have been to beat up on that beautiful silk. What a fabulous technique. So many great tips in this review and your blog post.

Love your shirt: the colour and the flounce. Great project to do the 12 shirts!

Love it, the fabric turned out perfect. I think the flounce is really cute. Great job on the sleeves too.

Beautiful fabric with the treatment and great sleeve. I loved reading through the process as that is a lot of buttonholes so I was wondering! This is fabulous and agree that the fabric plays a key role into the flounce success, and this one was a great success!
