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

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

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

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!

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

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?

Nice going Nata and who but you would know about the closure - designer's choice!

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)

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

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