Wonderful blouse, Sigrid! Thanks for all the tips as I'm thinking of sewing this pattern.

What a cute summer blouse! good idea with using narrower elastic, as drafted it would be too hot for summer. Now I'm curious about the English version too as I use the Dutch one also!

Very pretty, Sigrid. I'm contemplating whether I want to grade this up or pick another blouse.

Wow - you're fast! I just got my issue today, and this was on my list for "first up". Glad to see your review first!

Ladies, thanks for the compliments. Being in Europe makes me get my BWOF just a bit earlier than other areas of the world, though it was in the shops here even before I got mine in the mail. Fran G: it took me two evenings. Tracing, cutting and marking (I use wax paper) and sewing up the front and back on Sunday night. Sleeves and collar on Monday night. It is easy, and I'm very used to BWOF patterns.

Gosh you are quick, not that you'd know it from your workmanship! I love this design and the fabric you chose - it's a very flattering top on you.

Wonderful! I can't wait to sew this one. Thanks for the thorough review. Love your blouse-material is great. I just received my issue yesterday and was looking through it at bedtime- this one is a definite yes.

A lovely blouse, Sigrid! Thanks you for your helpful hints per construction. A bit of a silly question: how long did it take you to make this blouse? From tracing to wearing?

Gosh you're so fast! That was one of the items I was immediately drawn to in this issue. Glad to see it sews up nicely - looks lovely on you!

I just got my issue today, too, and this is one of the first things I want to make. Your review convinced me - beautiful blouse, excellent work as always.

Beautiful blouse, I just received my June issue today and this is one of the garments that caught my eye. Thanks for the helpful review.

Such a pretty style. It fits you very nicely. You did a great job!

WOW, this shows off your slim waist SO nicely! I certainly think you should make at least one more. And your ARMS are so pretty. I've always wished I had nice arms so I could wear short sleeves and sleeveless things. :o)BEAUTIFUL!

I just got my BWOF today. You have something sewn up already and it looks fantastic. Now I have to look at my magazine.....

Looks lovely Sigrid! You were quick in making it up.

Darling fabric and blouse! That is exactly the style I love!!! Great job.

Cute blouse! It's so not fair that you already have this sewn up! I haven't even received my June issue yet!

Sigrid, thank you for reviewing this very beautiful blouse. I'm been looking at the line drawing, thinking that the elasticized side sections would create a very feminine silhouette - and you display that stylish femininity. You look chic and smart, and as always, your detail work is perfection, itself. Excellent, helpful review. Lovely, Lily
