You did a beautiful job on this! I am getting ready to sew a fitted blouse, something I havn't done in a long time - I hope it turns out as pretty as yours!

Wonderful review. thank you so much for the sizing info! Your blouse looks fantastic. I love the way you have it opened with a camisole under it. You did an excellent job of sewing... and have reached the benefit of looks perfect on you!!!!

A great shirt. I love green! To reduce fullness at the top of a sleeve, spread the gathers by stitching your gathering thread between the notches on the tissue, not between the dots (which are placed higher up). Second, attach the sleeve to the body of the blouse before stitching the side and sleeve seams rather than after, regardless of what the instructions say. Then stitch the side and sleeve seams in one fell swoop, from hem to cuff. (This method also makes stitching french seams at the sides and on the sleeves easier.) Third, sewing with the gathered (sleeve) side down and the smooth side (ie the body of the blouse) facing you makes it easier to manoeuvre over the gathers. I have made many shirts this way with good results.

Great looking shirt! You did a really nice job on it. I usually cut my sleeve caps at least a size smaller than the rest of the pattern. This really helps to avoid puckering.

No one would ever guess that this was your first time to sew a blouse or your first time to sew with voile fabric. Your sewing is lovely and the blouse looks so nice on you!

This blouse is beautiful! I love the happy colorful print.

You are right! It does have the 70's look to it! Makes sense, since I am a 70's girl and I loved the 70's!

Love it! It has a nice 70's vibe to it! Thanks for the inspiration - I have the same fabric in a different colourway and never knew what to do with it - now I know!
