Variations on the pattern would be nice, like longer sleeves
This pattern is fantastic basic. It has the perfect amount of ease right out of the packet. It is very hack-able, I have already made a version with different sleeves and hem. It is worth it for an excellent basic bodice pattern.
I love the pattern. I am 69 yo and a plus size. I lengthens the blouse by 3 inches and the sleeves about 4 inches. The only problem is in the back of the sleeve. I need to decrease the fabric I am looking forward to using more of your patterns.
love this pattern. I've made two, and have another planned. This time in linen. I will extend the sleeves to 3/4 length for winter.
