Very cute! I loved this blouse from the line drawing in the mag and am happy to see how nicely it looks when made up.

Love to see this made up. I like it too, and the drawstring definitely helps to make the neckline as you wish ;) Looks lovely on you.

Love that you can adjust the plunge. It perfect as a spring transition piece.

Lovely blouse, I wasn't sure about the drawstring at the neckline when I saw this in the magazine but it looks really pretty.

Looks cute! I was concerned that when Burda *warned* of a plunging neckline that was not a good sign, but this looks like it covers up nicely! Now you just need a cute nautical belt!

Looks great! There is so much to like about this blouse. Just started looking through my stash to make this one. Your blog info will be very helpful - Thanks!

I missed this review I guess. I love your top. I am thinking of making it in a stretch woven stripe. I think it could be a good combination with the different grainlines. We'll see I guess. :)

Gorgeous blouse and it fits you perfectly! I too am amazed on how fast you are, in Sweden we still have the February issue in the stores.
