    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beautiful blouse!, 3/7/2015

    Reviewer: (Ok, USA)

    This blouse went together seamlessly! Instructions were detailed and the pictures were a great inclusion! I tweaked the pattern a bit to create more ease in the arms and adjusted the bust dart but everything else I kept the same. Thanks so much for a great pattern. Will definitely make again! Plan to wear it with the Everyday Skirt.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Another professional pattern, 11/30/2014

    Reviewer: (Denver, CO, US)

    Another very professional pattern from Oliver + S. Very simple to construct and elegant in design. As in the Cinema Dress, I loved the method used for increasing the bust size of the blouse; very effective, very simple and a technique transferrable to many other designs. Well done!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect for a new Mum!, 11/12/2014

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    I have just finished my third Weekend Getaway, this time a tunic in black hanky linen (ramie). The subtle shaping gives gentle definition to my post baby body. I feel very tidy and pulled together at a time when many of my clothes make me feel blobby. My dress version was a God send with my last pregnancy, I wore it until 32 weeks. The blouse version, I made in white linen/poly, is a staple for me as I can pull it up and feed in it. The pockets are so stylish, you can leave them off for a super quick sew, but why would you? They really make the blouse pop! The back neck facing is a thing of beauty, so clever. Just trust Liesl's excellent instructions. I look forward to making this again in some very soft draping silk.

    The pattern is perfect : easy to follow, explanations are clear even for a non native english speaker like me. I really enjoyed sewing this blouse !


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Weekend getaway blouse, 10/19/2014

    Reviewer: (Sydney, NSW, Australia)

    I loved my weekend getaway blouse and have just cut out another 2 - one for a friend.The pockets are the cutest I've seen. The only negative is it is very low cut but I sewed the seam up a little higher and although the collar doesn't sit the way it looks in your photo - it is perfectly fine.
