    Fun to sew!

    I made a size 10 with C cup and was very happy with the fit. It went together very easily and quickly. The pattern lends itself to so much creativity. I used a variegated rayon thread to highlight the princess seams. I am looking forward to creating more blouses with this pattern.

    The FBA was spot on! But the design is too boxy in the waist for a large chested woman (this is a mismatch of body type and pattern, not a pattern problem, though). The directions are clear and easy to follow. The pattern pieces are easy to print and combine. I would love to see larger models showing how the clothing looks on them to protect me from myself ;)

    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 06/05/2019
    I like this pattern so much! I have already made 5 of these cute summer blouses. I have made the Classic Shirt pattern in a size 8 with a D cup. My first Breezy Blouse was a size 8 D cup. It was too snug to feel comfortable. I then made a size 10 D cup. Much better. I do have to redraft the dart since it is about an inch below my apex. This is my body not the pattern. I have made no other alterations to the basic pattern. I have made this out of linen and voile. I have made it with the same and with contrasting fabrics. Definitely will be a summer staple in my wardrobe.
