Looks fantastic on you. I still want to make this blouse for myself.

very pretty. I think the satin buttons add to the elegance of the blouse.

Your soft fabric makes the folds fall softly, not crisply like Burda's. This makes for a very elegant blouse.

This to gorgeous. Beautifully sewn and it is the absolute perfect choice for your figure. Love the eyeware. I agree, it's more dress up than dress down. Not adding the tie was a good idea.

Lovely. I think that this top can be pretty dressy too. Flattering on you.

Beaufitul. My first thought when looking at the picture was how elegantly the fabric drapes making your version fabulously-elegant; not sporty at all.

Hi Linda, beautiful "take " on this pattern. I too made it and agree I don't class it as sporty more dressy! "Dora" is standing here watching me with my version on. I have worn it and find (as pointed out bymy daughter) the sleeves are too long. So it wil be cuffs off and sleeves cut and cuffs back on. Can I be cheeky , I may have missed the trouser review, but can I as which pattern you used to make those fabulous fitting black trousers on you photo album. Great album. The white dress & the animal costume are as excellent. Everything is.

This is too pretty to be called "sporty" -- ha! It looks very nice on you. :o)
