Thank you, Christine! Everyone I met the day I wore it told me it was beautiful without me asking for compliments ;) And my grandmother asked me to make one for her as well :)

How did you learn to fit the pattern to yourself so well? Did you make a muslin? Don't you just love those beautiful quit prints? So many to choose from!

To be honest I just took the risk to try it without a muslin. The fabric I used was not actually very expensive, although I really like it and it looks so nice. I then took size 18 for the blouse and after almost every step I tried the blouse on as good as possible. But I kind of always liked it, so I didnt change anything. This is just size 18 fitting me really good :)

Oh and yes, Im really happy this pattern can be used for quilt weight cottons, because as you say, there are so many beautiful prints to choose from! I will certainly use this pattern more often :)

The blouse looks so great! The color is perfect for you! I am still struggeling with the pattern (I need a size 20 and I am still scared to upsize it). Enjoy your beautiful blouse.

Thank you so much :) Why don't you make a muslin of size 18 first and then see where you need to enlarge it? Maybe it will fit you as well without any issue?
