What a great look on you! It's so flattering. This may be the wrap top that I finally try and like. Great review!

Annika, your blouse is lovely. I've made this pattern twice and really like it. The pattern is a bit expensive, but you get a couple of other tops with it--a Chinese-type jacket, which I have made, and Indian sarong and top.

Thanks for this review. I bought this pattern for the choli and sari wrapping instructions but never considered this blouse until now.

Great to see this review. I made this pattern a while back out of light weight linen. It is a style that is flattering on many different shapes, I think. The gusset under the arm was new for me, but as Annika says, it's pretty straight forward to make. I too found the sleeves to be long and enjoy rolling them up! Thanks, Annika!

The top is absolutely lovely on you. I've been wanting to make this for a while, and it's good to see how it looks on a similar build.

Another cool signture garment from you. The color is marvelous, and the cut is perfect for sticky days. And greetings from the Netherlands!

This is a gorgeous style and color on you! I have been dying to make up this pattern for a long time. Thanks for your very helpful review!

A lovely review! It is nice that there is more than one way to do wrap tops, and they don't have to be body-hugging knits. Lovely colour too. Did you find the pattern expensive? If it is the pattern company I think it is, I was put off by their prices. It looks great on you though!
