Current Tags What is a Tag:
Fabric:Cotton - Quilting  [See other projects in this fabric]
Pattern Description:
Fitted top has collar, collar band, front pin tucks, shaped hemline, front longer than back
Pattern Sizing:8-16 and 16-24. I made Uk I size 14

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

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?For some reason the collar band turns out too long and I originally sewed it so that it extended past the button band and had to then redo it.

Fabric Used:quilting cotton from my local market stall

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:None

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?I will probably sew it again in a plain fabric which will show the pin tucks better. Next time I will use a lighter interfacing, I used lightweight but the collar still feels a little stiff, although this does mean that it keeps it's shape. The blouse is nice bottomed at the front and also left open with a camisole worn under it. Definitely recommend it to others.

Conclusion:
Good pattern for a first blouse

You have made some great outfits. You must have a good local market stall! This quilting cotton has made up really well in this pattern . I like the little pin tucks. Would make up nice in a plain fabric too.

Great blouse! Looks like a very flattering shape, and the pin tucks are a nice detail.
