    I love this shirt, it’s so verstile, you can make a quirky version like me or make a very classy version with the right fabric (thinking a black sateen would be so great). I will definitely make more! This pattern has sparked my interest to make more wovens. The instructions are very extensive and clear, I felt like someone was sitting beside me while making it! And the fitting is great, the sizing chart was spot on for me.

    One of the most professional PDF patterns I’ve worked with. All the seams and techniques look a bit intimidating at first, but the instruction walk you through it with no headache at all. It took me way less time than I expected

    This is an exquisitely tailored shirt with some more advanced techniques but the pattern instructions provide so much detail and helpful tips that I had no problem even the first round through and put together a second shirt the next afternoon! I love the movement of the tuxedo shirt ruffle down the front which is done with a circular pattern piece instead of the standard gathered ruffle. Yay for no gathering!

    I love this blouse! I was very scared of it, but the tutorial is excellent. French seams are so lovely! Wearing this blouse makes me feel like I should be heading to a cook out with Scarlet O’Hara, so feminine and beautiful. I learned a lot while making it and am so very proud of the result! Planning to try with a brocade for a very formal look! Thanks RP!

    This pattern was put together very well. I made this top with the ruffle placket and it made the top feel very flowy and feminine.

    Beautiful pattern with clear instructions! I have never made a piece with completely enclosed seams but it was easy and the end product was gorgeous.

  7. Leanne Miller (verified owner)

    I liked that there are options with the top making it very versatile for simple casual wear or more formal classic elegant attire. I can also see the Riviera with just one ruffle and also just being worn with the collar stand as if in a mandarin style collar. The options are quite endless. The instructions and pics included in the pattern l found easy to follow.

    The Riviera Ruffle top is so flattering. It can be made with or without flutter sleeves and with or without the double ruffle. The ruffles are a lovely touch especially good for those of us who are Pear Shaped. Printing and assembling the pattern is a doddle no trimming of pages and you can just print the size you need. The pattern is easy to follow will plenty of explanations and pictures describing each step. The top is fitted so if you want a more relaxed fit go a size up. The top can be made up in all sorts of fabric I used a rayon/chiffon my next one will be in a crisp cotton.

    “The Riviera Ruffle Blouse creates a great, crisp wardrobe staple which can be made using so many fabrics. It has so many personalising options and such potential for changing it up so you have a different blouse each time.
    What Rebecca says about having easy to follow instructions is so true and every seam is either tucked in or hidden away; it produces a really nice finish.

    I enjoyed it immensely! I am always super impressed by the immaculate & precise drafting. I started off wondering how the ruffles were going to fit them being all curly and whirly. Only to be extremely stoked at the end, when everything matches up to the point! exciting WOOHOO! and VERY reassuring that I will have a use-able piece of clothing with great finishes and accurate sizing at the end of the day. MORE PLEASE!

    The Riviera is a gorgeous fitted blouse with optional ruffles, flutter sleeves and side panelling cut on the bias. There are so many fabulous options though, and the end result is definitely a well-fitting, gorgeous top that can be worn with anything! Highly recommend all Rebecca Page patterns, and the Riviera was no exception. Looking forward to creating many, many more of these!

    This pattern produces such a classy shirt and the ruffle is a very feminine addition. This will be a summer staple for me.

  13. Lacy Castleman (verified owner)

    Love this pattern! As someone who is semi-new working with wovens, I found the directions very clear and easy to follow. The ruffles are absolutely perfect!! Great for work, and the pattern is very versatile for thick structured fabric, or soft and flowy fabrics as well!

  14. Jen Kolar (verified owner)

    Having never done a placket nor a proper collar, I was nervous about attempting this one. It was surprisingly straight forward and while I moved slowly through those steps, the directions were clear and I was able to complete the pattern on my first try. I love the finished look.

  15. Beth Woodhauson (verified owner)

    A lovely sew with excellent finishing.

  16. Pamela Collis (verified owner)

    Once I sat down and really studied the pattern and instructions it’s a great sew. It’s a long time since I did what I call a traditional collar on a Blouse/Shirt and I greatly enjoyed making it. I chose the Basic Blouse pattern simply for my fabric choice I wanted the design on the fabric front and central rather than the ruffle I have since found some stunning fabrics to make the Full Ruffle blouse which I shall be making. Have a go at this pattern it really is stunning.

  17. Amy Taylor (verified owner)

    I enjoyed sewing this top! I like that it has buttons so that I can open it up. The instructions are clear, and that makes it a great sew even for beginners. I think the Riviera Ruffle will be a hit! It can be dressed up or down, and that is wonderful for busy women. It’s modest, but can be sexy – acceptable for church, work, or a date. My mother quite literally stole my first one off my back, and I received tons of compliments on it. I see my woven stash being used up this winter in preparation for next summer!

    This is a beautiful pattern. The instructions were clear and easy to follow❤️

  19. Kat Ross (verified owner)

    I always have to adjust lengths on any shirt I make. This was so easy with this pattern and the results where stunning ! The end product has such a nice crisp and professional look. Working with these type of fabrics makes it very versatile. I had made the shirt without the ruffles as I prefer a more sober look. It turned out amazing !

    Love the versatile style of this pattern. Can be for a dinner, or interview. I can wear it everywhere.
