      I realize you posted this last year, but just in case it helps anyone else, make sure that you have your printer settings set to “no magnification” or where it says “fit to page” make sure you unclick it. You want it to print out 1:1, no magnification or zoom, no fit to page.

    How much fabric does this use? I am so excited to make it! I think I might try to add a tie collar.

    Love this blouse. I have some paisley fabric already that I was going to use for another pattern, but I think I will try this one instead. Hope the ruffles aren’t too hard. I am always excited to see what’s new on this site. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful patterns for FREE.

    It looks even better than I remembered. Way to go, JJ! By the way, some of the recent patterns have a really broad size range, I’m loving that too. I think it makes Burdastyle patterns even more attractive to a lot of people.
