Hooray! The newest pattern from Cutting Line Designs, The Blouse Perfected (TBP), arrived in today's mail. I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival since joining the Shirt-A-Month (SAM) group at Artisan's Square and since taking Pam Howard's Classic Shirts class a few weeks ago. TBP looks to include every detail for a truly classic shirt design:
collar with collar band
slightly dropped shoulder
one front pocket
tower placket on sleeve
I cannot wait to start a muslin for this.
One point of confusion though - I see that finished measurements (thank you, Louise, for including these!) show bust larger than hips for every size. I wonder - is this typical for classic shirts? I'll have to be careful with this since my body shape is the opposite.
