This is the Alma blouse from Sewaholic patterns. I made view B with a Peter pan collar and threequarter length arms. The fabric is a cotton poplin (I think)..quite stiff fabric, dark blue with turqoise polkadots :) the sizing runs a little big, I made up my size according to the measurements on the envelope, and I had to take in all the darts and the sideseams considerably! (Could probably have gone down one size to begin with). I omitted the side zipper and I have no problems wiggling in and out :) All in all- a great pattern for a really cute blouse. Oh -I almost forgot: The amount of fabric needed is greatly exaggerated on the pattern envelope! I only used about 1,5 m
