Most notably: Four Square Walls versions for OWOP. I LOVED the striped version - loved. I am going to have to recreate a similar one soon! The next favorite was her version in black. Swooooon.
Also: Nikki's version. I didn't do the version with the ruffle because I thought it might be too cutesy but - it's very pretty and sophisticated even. I love it.
Last but not least: Sew She Said's version here. I wish mine fit more like that.
I cut a size 16, grading the sleeves out to an 18 (I have big arms). I think I could have cut a 14 with an FBA and the bigger sleeves. I ended up making 3/4" side seams. I'll have to measure the 14 and see how much smaller it would be.
I really like this top. I was really proud of myself for the work I did on it. I couldn't believe I did those 1/8" stitches to form the tucks. WOW!! I reset one of the sleeves and still ended up with some pleats - ah. It's ok. I love the little jeweled buttons and am so ready to wear this to work on Monday as part of my own MeMadeMonday venture.
And then...THEN...My husband said it looks like a maternity shirt. :-( He said it looks nice on me but it looks like a maternity shirt. That was not a thing that made me feel warm and fuzzy...but I still love and will wear it!
He caught me leaning to one side. The neckline is a little wide, and I feel like my bra might flash (which it did not)
Little tightness through the arm hole (what's the technical term again?? LOL!). I probably should have accounted for that.
I think the back fits really well. It fits nicely through my waist and rests at just the right spot above my hips - at least I think so.
I will definitely make more versions of this shirt. I could see it being a nice weekend staple, an alternative to getting up and putting on a tee. I can really see it with a nice pair of shorts - especially once we get some summer weather.
LOVE it tucked. I don't tuck in shirts. I have a high waist and no hips and a long back (aka a flat bottom at the top). Tucked shirts don't typically look good on me. But I like it!
