WOW, just fabulous. Love the contrast use of fabric. Great tip re front bands.

Your blouse is very striking and sophisticated. And you did a wonderful job!

I love it! It's too bad the magazine used such completely uninspired (and uninspiring!) fabric, because the photo in the magazine couldn't BE more boring. But both you and Vonnevo have shown how fabulous this blouse SHOULD be! Great job!

Love the neckline on your top and the contrasting fabric you used. Looks very dressy.

Striking blouse. It looks like all your efforts paid off. This pattern is the one that move me to resubscribe to Burda mag. Love your version with the contrasting band.

Another beautiful interpretation. You inspired me to cut out this top today. Hopefully it'll look as good as yours.

What a great top. I wish I'd made that!

That top is to DIE for!

Wow, I love it ! The plain bands and stripes look wonderful. I too found the bands difficult to sew on, using the given method, so I stitched them on as double thickness, serged and topstitched close to the seam line. I wore my blouse at Tokyo Disney Sea while on holiday in Japan and it was very comfortable.
