SBCC Gibson Blouse

This is my third make from Skinny Bitch Curvy Chick patterns and my love affair is growing stronger.  See the others here and here.  I caught on to the company a little late and now I'm going back to the beginning to see what I missed. 

I didn't realize the Gibson blouse has a hi-low hemline until I had finished sewing it together and tried it on. The hi-low look is not a favorite of mine, so I hacked off the low hem in the back to make it straight.  I like it much better that way.
The instructions for this one are sparse without a lot of pictures. The sewing on this one is pretty straight-forward so you won't miss them.  It's an added bonus because I was able to print off the instructions and have them beside me.  Having to refer to instructions on the computer is one drawback of digital patterns for me. 
My measurements are 34-28-38.  For other SBCC patterns I've used a small.  I cut a small for this but ended up taking off an additional inch from the side seams to make it less baggy.  Next time I will go with the XS. 
The fabric is Liberty of London. Happy sewing!
