I like the fact that you include precise details on what techniques are required and how that adds to difficulty. I love this on you, it looks stylish and professional.

I love to see this top made up as it's on my list, too. Yours is really lovely. Hint, if you own a serger, a rolled hem on the flounce is much easier than the zigzag. Great job on yours. I think you'll get lots of compliments.

What a pretty stylish and practical blouse! I'm hoping to also make this blouse and your interpretations on sewing details are very much appreciated and will be gratefully read again/followed.

You are all very kind. I want to add that this blouse is really roomy and comfortable to wear too. dbsewer, I do not have a serger for now but its good to know for when I do get one. I really appreciate that Burda magazine patterns have those funny steps sometimes because of this. There is always a strange or clever method they come up with for a SM, depending on how you look at it:-).

Beautiful! You've got me sorely tempted to use up one of my 1m silk satin cuts when my issue arrives!

Oh, I love this. I've had my eye on this pattern and I'll have to make it up.

I definitely like this style. I'm pretty sure I can convert one MSB pattern to look like this. I'll give it a try!

Thanks for such a detailed review.

Oh it is wonderful to read the comments/contributions of others. Satin silk (Thanks, squirrely poo) - what a great idea - and I've got some aging - like fine wine:) - and it is time to use it.

Silk satin! Squirellypoo that is really tempting.

Re Becca said...
Wonderful job! It looks so professional, so "accountant", nothing personal! I like the zig zag finish, whenever I serge a rolled hem, by serger never quite goes back to the way it was. Your finish will work quite well.

Thank you for the nice comments again. Re Becca, I fully understand the accountant thing because feel that way too.

Ok, your top looks like a pic straight from the magazine. In other words, gorgeous! I was debating on whether or not to get this issue, and now I think I need to!
