Wow, I love it ! The plain bands and stripes look wonderful. I too found the bands difficult to sew on, using the given method, so I stitched them on as double thickness, serged and topstitched close to the seam line. I wore my blouse at Tokyo Disney Sea while on holiday in Japan and it was very comfortable.

Another beautiful interpretation. You inspired me to cut out this top today. Hopefully it'll look as good as yours.

Beautiful blouse. I love your choice of fabrics. Yours looks so much better than the picture in the magazine.

Striking blouse. It looks like all your efforts paid off. This pattern is the one that move me to resubscribe to Burda mag. Love your version with the contrasting band.

Love the neckline on your top and the contrasting fabric you used. Looks very dressy.

I love it! It's too bad the magazine used such completely uninspired (and uninspiring!) fabric, because the photo in the magazine couldn't BE more boring. But both you and Vonnevo have shown how fabulous this blouse SHOULD be! Great job!
