The very shirt I was checking on for a review. I would probably leave off the ripple detail too. I love your blouse and congrats on the firsts!

Very pretty! You've done a wonderful job.I will consider making this too when the March issue finally arrives in NZ!

And I don't even have this issue yet! Glad to see another BWOF sewer and reviewer. Lovely blouse, and the fabric looks good!

Congratulations on all the firsts :-). Love your blouse, I think you should at least try to give it a second chance, this fabric is cute...

Hmmm... you know, I think I would have had the same thought as you did when I opened my fabric box. But look what you did with it! Just goes to show, design and beautiful workmanship can really make a difference, this is lovely.

Congrats on a lovely muslin. You picked one of my STAR patterns for this issue. I love the shaping and the shoulder seams look like it will help with shoulder and bust fitting.

What a pretty, floaty top for summer. Great first review too!

Congrats on your first review. I like the fabric, very Spring looking. Enjoyed your review. It does match up perfectly on the front.

Thank you all for your kind words. Lorna, any matching on the front was surely a little bit of serendipity because I certainly didn't try to match.

That looks so good - the Burda picture shows it in a print, and yours is just as pretty. I was also thinking about doing it without the sleeve panels and ripple front band, and your picture confirms that it loks really good without them. It could be stunning in silk - do let us see when that's done. And thank you for a most helpful review

Congratulations on your first review!! I haven't received my March Burda yet but will be looking at this one when it comes. Buttonholes really aren't all that frightening when you get down to it.

Wonderful job matching the prints on the front closures! Amazingly fast too I only received this issue last week ... and this is on my to do list as well!

Congratulations! Your top looks great and the review is concise and helpful! I am considering grading this pattern up for my plus size figure and really appreciated the picture of a "real" garment.

Good job on both the top and your first review! I wish I had my March Burda already. The fabric is very pretty in this style.

I was trying to get the mag picture into the pattern info part of this review, but didn't do it right, so had to backtrack. I'm still not able to get the mag pic in.

Thanks for a great review on this one. Your muslin look great, would like to see a pic of you modelling it. I have this one bookmarked too :)

I only see a picture of the magazine photo. Congratulations on your red-letter day! //edit// That was weird. I posted the first half of my comment, and when the page reloaded, your picture was there. I swear it wasn't before, because I double-checked to be sure I wasn't missing it. Anyway, it's there now. Nice job!

Peggy: It's there now. I was having trouble figuring out how to do this.

I would love to see your picture but it is not opening. I haven't even received my March WOF yet! Now I can see it! It looks so fresh and springlike. Congrats on all your accomplishments today.
