I LOVE this! You look great in that top!!! I used this pattern for the fitted blouse contest, too.

I really like your fun choice of fabric. It turns what could be a rather formal tuxedo style blouse into a bright and cheerful summer top, ready for an afternoon in the sun. You look so PRETTY in it, too, just like somebody you could walk right up to and start carrying on a conversation. :o) Love it!

Pretty blouse, but now I can't get the Mellow Yellow tune out of my head. LOL!

This is really pretty on you and the fabric is lovely too. I recently made this blouse without ruffles in a beige stretch cotton (boring) from stash. I like yours much better and it inspires me to try it again in a print WITH the ruffles. Great review.

Louella, your wonderful yellow blouse is utterly charming. You've chosen a bright and elegant fabric, gotten an excellent fit, and professionally constructed it. I just love the ruffles; in the bright yellow, they're so feminine and flirty. I think it would be impossible to be unhappy in this marvelous blouse. -Lily

Very pretty blouse. I think the empire style is very flattering to you, and the fabric is so fun. I'll be sure to check your review again when I finally get to this pattern in my neverending list.

Your blouse is very trendy and current.It's in a color that is everywhere and with details that many retailers are pushing.GAP had a fulled shirt and charged close to $50.00.It may just be a styling issue.Try taming all of the electric yellow with a little menswear vest and layer a tank or cami under the shirt and open up a couple more buttons.This way it breaks up all of the color.Hope that helps.

Heatherrique, you look gorgeous! This is a lovely style of shirt and the fabric suits it perfectly. I agree with Debbie Cook that this style is very, very flattering on you. The ruffles give it such a beautiful, feminine touch. Great work!

I've made this blouse in a black cotton, and I'm trying to finish a blue crepe one for the contest. I found the whole project, especially ths sleeves, to be very time-consuming with all of the slip stitching. Your's looks really nice. Thanks for this thorough review.

Really very cute in that fabric. You did a good job, and I think it's very flattering.

Darling! And I love that color on you. Not many can wear yellow and look so good. Nice blouse!

This is Oh-So-Pretty! And the yellow looks terrific on you too. Adding that pattern to my wish list now :) ...

Your blouse is lovely--looks wonderful on you! Thanks for the helpful review!

this is amazing I made the same top with the smae fabric but in a salmon pink. I love it . I think the sleeve billow is because the fabric does have a bit of crispness to it and the Escada one you like is made of what looks like silk charmeuse. Very drapy . My blouse didnt have the ruffles . I always worry that I will over emphasize my boobs with a ruffle. You did a great job.

Lovely print and lovely fit.

Woa, I almost didn't recognize you in that 'muted' print :-). But I guess the sleeves take the place of the print here. Which is fine, please don't get discouraged about them, they're really smashing, I think they're going to grow on you in a couple compliment-laden wearings. You picked the perfect fabric for this pattern, large droopy sleeves are just a little sad, you need that crispness. Another winner :-).
