I love cotton shirting, it's by far my favorite thing to sew and wear. This shirt is gorgeous!

Really pretty-I like the touch of purple in the print. Hope you sew it up for yourself again.

I really really really like that shirt. I was thinking I might actually have to buy this issue of Burda while I can still get it (I sure hate tracing tho). I would love to see you model it.

Really pretty. I love it in plaid. I'm sorry to hear it didn't fit well.

I know someone who sews a size 40 and LOVES plaid. But, I might need an FBA. Too bad it doesn't fit. It's super cute. I love sewing with crisp cottons and linens although I don't too often.

Adorable! I just reviewed this myself and our final results couldn't be more different. Love your version! We TX girls must think alike!

Love your version of this shirt. I am also glad to see it in a woven not knit.

Thanks for the review, I like this style in this issue too, and was wondering how it would turn out. Yours looks terrific.

Such a cute shirt and especially in the plaid. Thank you also for the fabric recommendations - I find that so helpful!

Your blouse is more inspiring than the magazine photo. Thank you for reviewing this.

Hi Leslie! :) That is a lovely blouse, too bad it was too big.
