Super cute - I think the flounces look nice on you!

I like the flounces on you, great job and I have been wanting to sew this BWOF pattern. I will have to make this one now, the blouse looks wonderful, great job.

Ah, machine "mishaps". Sometimes projects come out for the better for all the sweating and swearing we have to do to save them - this appears to be one of those projects. Nice job, and I think the floucnes look fine on you.

I love your blouse, and thanks for that super website link!!!!

Ugh, I think I know that mishap all too well. :( Anyway, great recovery! Love your blouse...very breezy and light (and yes, flattering). I might have to add this one to the list, too. *sigh*

Nice recovery, and a beautiful finished blouse!

I think that looks great on you. those shape advisors dont know everything. Sometimes a hot outfit wins out over rules! good job. I love it.

Been there, done that too with the serger. I love this blouse. Perfect for summer.

I don't know what Shape Advisor is thinking, but I don't think that blouse is unflattering on you at all--it looks very flattering in the photo. Your blouse really turned out great--I know how much work you put into it, and I think it really paid off.

Very nice! This blouse is very pretty on you and looks flattering! I would definitely wear it without hesitation.

I think this is a great top that looks WONDERFUL on you! The top has great style with the ties & flounces~wear it proudly! :)

Sharp and gorgeous top!

Beautiful! I love your blouse. You did a great job with the adjustments and your first FBA. Wonderful!

Nancy Rhodes said...
Your blouse looks wonderful! the layers of flounce are not 'heavy' -- they create movement which is a GREAT coverup strategy for all problem areas. Keep the eye moving and the eye doesn't 'see'. Beautiful blouse...

It IS very nice on you. I totally didn't see this blouse in the magazine. It has nice details. yours is much better than the magazine version.

It really does work on you! Nice fabric's very airy and light looking. Cute!

Pretty blouse. You did a great job!

I think your blouse looks terrific! Don't ever abide by anyone's silly fashion rules. I think you look great wearing this cute top!

I like the flounce, despite what the Shape Adviser says. It suits you and it's an adorable top.

A very pretty blouse. Congratulations!

i got a bg kick out of the shape advisor...thanks for the link! i watched the brittish' what not to wear' years ago, and learned alot from trinny and suzanna about what doesn't work on my (pear shaped) body. it saves alot of headache to just go with what works. in any event, i think your top came out great!

Lovely job, flounces are very flattering. I also used El's tutorial for invisible zipper, its the very best.

Fabulous summer blouse - I love it made up in white and I love it even more in the gauze! Thanks for the shape advisor link.

Very pretty, and, on the contrary, I think it looks lovely on you. Trinny and Susannah aren't always right, after all. :o)

Wonderful blouse! I've got this one on my list too. You did an awesome job.

Great save on the flounces. You'd never guess a mishap ever occurred. You did a really nice job on this blouse.

Squeezylemon said...
You are EXACTLY the same shape as me Gelbean, so I think after seeing your wonderful blouse I'll ignore the "experts" and make this! Thanks for a great review.

Beautiful blouse! Well done on conquering both an invisible zipper and and FBA! Keep on sewing!

Well done, a very pretty blouse. I think you look good in the flounces.

Great top. It is a really cute style on you.

Marji said...
Another one here who thinks that the Shape-Advisor is only a "guideline" to be taken with a grain of salt. I think this is very flattering on you and looks cool and breezy in the cotton gauze. I love how the grainline of the gauze accents the flounces. You did a great job, and should wear this proudly.

I'm going to try it in voile. Beautiful!

I love this shirt, I think you did a fantastic job. How did you get the pattern I went to Burda's site and can't see that pattern. Please contact me on this.
