Beautiful blouse. I love the colors and the very feminine look of this pattern. It does look a little loose on you, but I can see why you would want it that way if you are using a camisole under it. Lovely job.

First to tell my doubts about the pixs, because I couldn't believe the Project foto wasn't the Pattern Photo. Karen, you have natural abilities to become a model. If the university sents you for a sabbatical, you can work for Burda World of Fashion, I'm sure about it. So romantic top, simply lovely.

Pretty top. I've visited my sister in Fremantle at Christmas before and it looks perfect for the heat there!

Looks great on you - thanks for the notes on the alterations, as I'd probably have to make similar ones.

What a pretty, fluttery, and feminine top! It makes me smile to look at it (cute photo of yourself, too!). It sounds as though you had to do quite a bit of work, all right, but the effort was certainly worth it!

I love this - now on my list of "must get" patterns - planning a wardrobe for a cruise throught the Panama Canal in February so need some cool clothes that also look terrific. Thanks for the tip on the sleeve alterations.

Your top turned out beautiful! You certainly achieved the feminine and flouncy look like you wanted! Perfect style and fabric for hot weather.

How pretty! I love what you have done with this pattern, especially the sleeve alteration. Every flutter sleeve pattern I have tried has the same problem so next time I will copy your alteration. Thanks for the review!

This looks great! I have a similar pattern and was thinking of lengthening the peplum, so you have provided support for that idea. That fabric is gorgeous - I spent a frightening amount at Tessuti's recently so I relate to that as well. They do have such wonderful silks. Congratulations on a wonderful job.
