Very pretty. I never would have guessed that you made any errors, whatsoever! This is definitely on my project short list.

I've made that mistake with an asymmetric design. It's so easy to do isn't it. Your shirt looks good!

I've had this shirt on my list and hope I get to it this year.

Your shirt turned out beautifully! And no one (except us ;) ) will ever know the front is backwards-great job! (btw, I've done that too! lol)

Very pretty shirt. Wonderful fabric, so unusual.

I saw your picture in the gallery and wondered "did she reverse the photo, or did she reverse the blouse front?" Looks cute, though, and gives it a unique take. :) Which style number did you take the sleeves from?

Nata said...
I took the sleeves from #111. Here is the link:,1270777-1000019-1503695-1503697-1503768,enEN.html

Thanks for the "heads up" about the gathers and the effect that can have. I only noticed the reverse buttonhole band etc cos I need to reverse it when i make it. Only your pals on the review know so no worries. How often have we all ended up with 2 bits the same way round and had to squeeze another correct piece out of the scraps. But in this case you got away with it! Nice result!

Your fabric is faaaaaabulous, the little quirks make it more interesting not less.

Thanks for the review. Your blouse looks great. I have the green version of the fabric so I appreciate the warnings.

I LOVE your blouse. It has a wonderful retro feel, partly from that great fabric. Your sleeves are much nicer/classier than Burda's.
