I think all Australians know the saying “Not happy Jan!!!”, and this is how I felt about this Colette pattern on my body. It looks ok on the mannequin but not on me. For some reason the Colette darts don’t work for me at the bust line, so I guess I won’t be making another Colette pattern. The facings in this blouse are a bit too much and could be simplified with a self made bias. I love all the other Jasmine blouses that I have seen on this site, so it is disappointing that it didn’t work for me even after lots of adjustments.
