Your new sleeves are inspirational. They really go well with the lines of this pattern.

What a versatile pattern this has turned out to be. Great fit and style.

Very nice tops. (I don't think the fit on the 2nd top is any better than the 1st, actually; I think they are both great.)

Interesting, it looks like the 2nd one fits you better. Possibly a lighter fabric effect? I love the print, and the short sleeves are really cute..

I always LOVE your fabric choices. As usual, totally cute on you - I definitely need to try to branch out a little...

Cute blouse that looks great on you!

Thanks for the review - I was wondering if all this gathering would make me look like my casing was too tight, but evidently not at all :-). And let's not downplay the rest of your wardrobe, because I'd definitely be very happy to open my closet door and find it...

This is so cute on you!

Using a print was an inspired decision: your top looks great. This pattern(both long- and short-sleeved versions) was in BWOF last May. I'm glad Burda made a commercial pattern out of it and enhanced the instructions.

OOOh, this looks wonderful on you, love the ruching detail. I missed this pattern so thanks for the review.

Heather, I love the ruching on this blouse! I think you could wear it unbuttoned a bit with a cami and it would look great. You are SO GOOD at tops like this!

I really like the style of this pattern. You always choose such fun prints :)

Hey HeathersMom, this is really cute! Love the fabric. I've never seen a camo pattern in neat colours like this. Good job. I know you'll enjoy wearing it and get lots of compliments
