Heatherrique, You are stylin' girl! It's amazing how different the same pattern can look with different fabric, color, and print.

You look MAAAAAAAAAAAAAVELOUS in ALL of these tops! What a great use of ONE PATTERN, MULTIPLE LOOKS. :o) I really like your project photo collage, too. Bravo! :o)

Thanks for the review. This one is on my "to make" list. All three versions look so nice on you. Nice job matching the chevrons on the third version

All the versions look so nice! I love your fabric choices for each top!

Love the third version, too! Not only does this style look great on you, your choice of fabrics and your orientations of the prints give your blouses miles and miles of style!

You certainly have done well with this pattern. Those are some very pretty tops.

I really like your sunny new yellow version, too!

This looks fantastic on you! Great review!

Louella, this looks so lovely on you! The neckline is certainly not too low - it looks good in your photo - and there is nothing whatsoever wrong with the placement of any flower. It all looks good to me! I love the placements, though, of the butterflies under the collar. Very cute! The chocolate and mint version is also a stunner and I think a short-sleeve version to wear in summer would look fantastic. I love your work!

I love this style of blouse on you, despite the risque neckline. :) Gorgeous!

Love both of them...they seem different from the rest that I've seen reviewed. Thanks for such a nice, detailed review!

This pattern is such a winner! I've liked every one of them. Your tops look great; the floral IS very upscale. You are the only one to notice the flower placement, I think. Love this!

Great blouse - perfect print!

I don't see any flower placement issues. I see a very pretty blouse which looks perfect for the lovely weather you are having there. Just lovely!

Wow!! I love this top! It really looks like an upscale purchase!! You look dazzling. Annette P.S. Spring forgot to come to Pennsylvania A

It's always fun to read your reviews~wonderful blouse and that color is perfect. You look gorgeous.
Christina Sonja said... (3/26/09 10:05 AM) Reply
Wow, beautiful blouses. You always use the best prints!

Very pretty--the style and color look nice on you.

Awesome top! Very pretty! Fun review.

Your blouses look great. The pricey fabric one is really fabulous. Burda WOF subscription keeps calling out to me even though I have been trying to ignore it.

What a FANTASTIC review. Of course, we EXPECT those from you, you know. (Nothing like a little pressure!) Your top is SO pretty and SPRINGY! :o) I loved your comment about the chest to neck ratio. :o))) Spoken like a true mathematician. :o) I still LOVE that first version, too.

I love the purple print version--purple is a great color on you: you should wear it often :)

You look so cute in this!
Byrdie said... (3/25/09 9:51 PM) Reply
Very pretty... I love this top. Didn't even notice the big flower until you said something:)
AnneMarie60 said... (3/25/09 8:59 PM) Reply
Love both of your blouses, but the polka dot one is a stand-out! Great job, as always and a very amusing and informative review!

So cute!

Spring has sprung and YOU'RE ready in your gorgeous top! It's so feminine and flirty and just lovely!

This is way cuter than that pattern photo! I can't say that the blouse in the picture does much for me, but yours is great.
Nancy K said... (3/25/09 6:22 PM) Reply
Really good looking on you. Definitely a figure flattering cut.
Re Becca said... (3/25/09 6:19 PM) Reply
LOVE the purple flowers. You gotta love BWOF and their necklines.

I love both of your versions of this blouse.

Ooooo!!! Both versions are SOOOO PRETTY!!!! LOVE your fabric choices!!!

Great review, as usual. :) Both your tops are really nice. I love the purple one!
Michelle L said... (3/25/09 4:30 PM) Reply
Gorgeous! I love the floral print, and the polka-dotted version in your photo album is awesome! I am so going to have to start buying BWOF!

Lovely tops, both of them! I especially like the purple flower one...and I'll have to look at it again, because I honestly did not notice the flower placement.
michellep74 said... (3/25/09 3:55 PM) Reply
I've loved everyone's versions of this, and yours is no exception. Love the floral print!
Heidi Ho said... (3/25/09 3:49 PM) Reply
Stylin' spring blouse!!!I LOVE IT! Okay, I don't know what I am waiting for I am tracing off that puppy tonight! You have gotten me inspired! Great review.

This is the cutest darn top! All the versions I've seen on PR are unique and your print is so spring like and fresh. Beautiful!
