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!

Beautiful top!

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.

Silk satin! Squirellypoo that is really tempting.

Pretty and chic. Well done.

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.

Very pretty, this one is on my list.

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

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

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:-).

Absolutely darling, I could not wait to see this top made up. Great job.

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.

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.

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.
