I absolutely love your blouse! I do agree that it would be wrong to wear a jacket with this blouse, it is too great to cover up.

Your blouse is beautiful...I marked that blouse with a smiley face too. I really want it and about a day before I got the magazine, my order from Fabric Mart came with the perfect white fabric in a mystery bundle!!! Thanks for the info on the wide shoulders, I will pay attention to the fit on the pattern before I cut out the blouse.

Great blouse lmg:-) and you noticed the shoulder thing, I was thinking about the pads also but DD hates them, LOL!!!! Love your eyelet, very pretty. Marita

This is on my list for the fall. The only thing that has me hesitating is the slightly dropped shoulder, which is why you thought the pattern ran wide. You can tell from the height of the sleeve cap that it is not a set in per se. But it still looks great on you

I have been coveting this design, not knowing who it was by-how do I get this pattern now from Burda?

What a perfect blouse. Thanks for the tip on the wide shoulders.

Nancy, the dropped shoulder bothered me a bit too but it's not too bad. EvaDress, you can buy individual Burda pattern magazines at some magazine shops or in Canada at German delis!

Beautiful blouse, looks wonderful on you, but alas you would have to email me instructions on how to get a waist first before it would fit me.....!
