Such a lovely look and such a helpful review. All 3 reviews I have seen are so helpful and all three blouses turned out so wonderful.

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.

Very cute! I admire the fact that you have already sewn something from this month's magazine - nice work!

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. :)

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!

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!

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

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

It looks great on you. Love it when someone reviews a pattern on my to sew list. Great blouse for spring.

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.

Same as michellep74, I liked this shirt a moment I saw it and it is definitely on my sew list, lovely to see how it looks when made up, I like it even more.
