    I just cut this pattern out the other day, only the version with the ruffles. I’m so excited to make it after seeing your version. Any tips? How is the length?

      My only tip is to fit the bodice, midriff and peplum before you do the actual sewing. For me this is the biggest challenge due to my petite figure. I ended up “slash and spread” to shorten the bodice and midriff. In a hindsight, shortening the bodice was a good idea but i should have kept the midriff length. Happy sewing.

    This looks great on you! I made one of these blouses and I love it. Seersucker really works on this version!

    This is to die for! Looks soooo much nicer than the image on the front of the pattern – thanks for alerting me to the potential of a pattern I initially overlooked.
