I finally made a Roscoe Blouse! I think I might be the last sewer to do so and of course I'm wondering why I waited so long.
There's not much to say about this pattern that hasn't already been said. I made a size smaller than I measured because, I'd read there was a lot of room in it (and I'm glad I did), and followed the pattern exactly as written. 
I used fabric from The Block Prints on Etsy which I bought a couple of years ago. It has the perfect drape for this pattern. 
I'm really happy with it and need to search the stash for some voile to make another one!

Style Arc Joan Top

The start of the sewing summer - a Style Arc Joan Top. I used a voile from the stash which I think came from Tessuti a couple of years ago.
I made it straight from the pattern, using the size I normally use, and it fits really well. The only think I'd change is to add a couple of cm to the length (or I might just make a pair of slightly high waisted pants to wear with it).

Merchant and Mills Ellsworth Shirt

I made it without any modifications, just to test it out. The only modification I would make, if I made it again, would be to add an inch to the length, especially at the front. I was between sizes so I decided to size down as it is so roomy, and I am glad I did.
There is not much else to say. The instructions are good, I love all the linen from Potter & Co, and I found the perfect green buttons in my stash. I definitely recommend making one.
