Thanks for your detailed review. I want to make this blouse for my daughter, and now it will be much easier! I love the yoke and the little puff sleeves on your pretty blouse.

I like your top and it looks very nice on you. I appreciate your BWOF reviews and all the pictures. I know they will help me when I sew my first BWOF garment...sometime in the near future. Keep up the great work that you do. :)

I once had a shirt and it was a gas, I always knew it had hearts and class. Louella, bravo for having another foray into BWOF. This garment does have really nice styling and I'm certainly developing quite an attraction to button loops and peplums, both of which this pattern has. It has quite a lovely feminine look and, to my eye, looks good on you. Please give it another go with your ideas for modifications.

You + fab creativity w/ the English language = math teacher?! Had you been my teacher, I may have been more successful in that subject! :) ANYWAY, great top! This is one of my favorites from this issue, so I'm glad to see your version! You are the BWOF goddess these days!

I LOVE this blouse on you, Louella! In particular, I like those little sleeves, and the peplum, which, as you say, isn't too exaggerated. Another VERY HELPFUL and FUN review. :o)

It's a really cute blouse! oh, I know what you mean by concentrating on the instructions, sometimes they make my brain hurt!

Very pretty and flattering! I have yet to try a Burda.

crisford said...
This is very cute, Louella! I love the fabric for this pattern. You might want to try adding the length to the peplum rather than the billowy part. I noticed on the model, the top looks really short anyway so maybe you wouldn't need to add so much. I love these little sleeves--you're lucky to have graceful arms!
