Pattern Description: Misses blouses with variations. Fitted with front and back darts.

Pattern Sizing: 6 - 20

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Very much so.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I loved that it turned out exactly as promised, even better than the very expensive RTW I couldn't afford.

Fabric Used: Poly/cotton blend black and white gingham. I searched for 100% cotton, but in the end, am happy to have fewer wrinkles.

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made a 12, with FBA. Learning how to do this has made a significant difference in the fit of garments I sew.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I purchased more fabric today and am considering entering the fitted blouse contest!

Conclusion: Using the recommended sew-in interfacing resulted in a much better look; I will definitely do this again.

Pretty shirt. Nothing like a classic and how much more classic than a gingham check in a button down shirt?

Lovely. The finishing details are perfect. I made this pattern but cheated on the cuffs-made an easy wrist casing because this was "for around the house" out of a heavy cotton rayon. But I am so glad to see you left the top button open since I intend to wear mine that way but wondered about that band making it necessary to button up. And your gingham is so cute!
