I'm kind of glad you made that mistake when you were editing, because for some reason I missed this the first time around and I like your version! I've made this top, too (but haven't reviewed it yet) and love it, but find it's big, so I'm going to go down a size or two and make another one. I also wear a tank to avoid embarrasment when I'm out in public. Yours looks great on you!

ha ha! i did this too the other day and I felt all sheepish! There is an option when you are editing your review, to either check "minor review, don't move to top" or it will automatically be moved to top again. Try editing another review and look for that button/option/checkbox thingy. You'll see it.

This blouse is fabulous! I hadn't even noticed it in my issue of BWOF, and now I'll have to take a second look. It seems like such a classy, yet casual style.

First I thought Jennifer Aniston does sew and posted her creations here. Your shirt looks cute and suit you well.

This top is my favorite in that issue and I have fabric ready to go for it too. You did a beautiful job on the sewing - it looks very professionally done. And YES you DO look like Jennifer Aniston and your husband is doing a great job with the photography.

Absolutely, Absolutely GORGEOUS! That does it-- I'm finding that 1/08 BWOF. You do just beautiful work!

Nice to know it runs a bit large -- maybe I can squeeze in without upgrading. I do like those lines; about the only white shirt I liked. Isn't choice great! Your shirt is beautiful.

Way too cute. Nice to know it was done without alterations. You and the pix your husband took look great.

OK, that does it! This top will be MINE. I only hope I will look as good as you do in it. Well done!

Beautiful work!! I love your top!!

This top on you made me change my mind. I had skipped it as the least interesting of the series of blouses in this issue. You showed a great version of this, it's gorgeous on you. And having a 14 yr old daughter too, I know that when they approve, it's a winner ;-)

Just finished mine in white like in the magazine. Your finishing is top-notch! I don't have a serger and now I wish I did. Great photos!

Really nice job. Love the photo session!

I passed over this when I flipped through the magazine, but this blouse is much more attractive on you than on the model - nice work!

What a great top for you. It looks like it was the perfect design choice and wonderful fabric choice. Enjoy wearing it and making more!

GORGEOUS top! You look great in it. That does it - I need to find this issue...

Thank you for the wonderful review. This top is really cute!

Birgitte, you can't imagine how relieved I was to find your review and pictures on how to do the front opening. I laid in bed the whole night (before I found your review) trying to piece it together in my head. I had no idea how I was going to sew it and then voila, your review showed up in my search!!! So THANK YOU for the pictures!!
Birgitte said... (1/28/08 2:56 PM) Reply
It looks super cute on you!!! Beautiful construction and I love the light blue color. And thanks for the mention :-) and also for all the pictures- very helpful!

Very cute shirt! I want to make this up, too, but haven't found the "right" fabric yet. ;)

Omigosh, I lo-----ve it. What a great shirt! You and it both look very fresh and artsy. :) (P.S. I grew up in Calgary -- best wishes to all in "Cowtown"!)

haha sexi sadi - yes, my husband. I said "ya maybe an ugly version of her" Thanks for the comment

Cute shirt. Anyone ever tell you that you kind of look like Jennifer Aniston?

I just cut this out last night and now I can't wait to sew it. Love your version.
