I tried the free drop sleeve blouse before purchasing this one to test the brand so to speak. There were a couple of errors I thought on the rouleau loop construction but the pattern was good size wise ( very roomy) and as described. Heartened by this I got this blouse as there are so many lovely ones out there on social media and I only saw one negative review. I chose my size according to my measurements and was happy with the finished garment measurements as well with just a reasonable amount of ease even though the pattern is meant to be loose fitting. Instructions are good, very clear and great tips about where to take most care. Excellent especially for beginners. Made up though the blouse is very tight on the back and shoulders. I checked that I used the correct seam allowance and cut the right size.

I really love this pattern. It’s easy to follow and has some really nice features. The one I made is absolutely beautiful and comfy. I intend to make a couple more.
