Pattern Description: Fitted top has collar, collar band, front pin tucks, shaped hemline, front longer than back, wrong side shows, and stitched hem. B: pin tucks on sleeves.

Pattern Sizing: Misses 8-24

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? yes. this is a fairly basic blouse with the addition of radiating pintucks that goes together well. I like that it is a two piece collar, with stand.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? i like the radiating pin tucks.

Fabric Used: fine woven cotton

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: none

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? Yes, great top, very comfortable and fits nice

Conclusion:
The tucks are so cute, unfortunately, you cannot see them on my fabric. It's a great blouse and would be really nice using a solid fabric to show off the tucks

I love your blouse. On the vogue photo I notice the front pin tucks are a bit high; are they well placed on a real person?

The pintucks start at the waist and i do not think they are too high, they add nice shape. I do not recall where I got fabric. It looked like it was some sort of remnant, maybe from downtown LA as it was cut choppy and had a sticker on it.
