Belinda, Thankyou for your excellent review and tips on stitching the front band. Excellent. I have just drafted this pattern and am about to make it. I love this design and look forward to making it.

Belinda, this looks positively stunning, and you make a very good testament for making a muslin before final sewing!

This looks terrific! I made the same top recently and just love it. I received so many compliments on it.

Your blouse is stunning! I didn't even give this one a second glance because it was so blah on the model, but I'm going to take another look now. I think the Burda photographers do a poor job of showing off the product they are trying to get us to make. Burda patterns looks so different after we make them--better!

Exquisite blouse, particularly in the fabric you chose. The changes you made to fit your shape and your construction techniques are documented in one of the finest reviews I've ever read. Thank you so much for this. -Lily

I love the look of this blouse on you! What a wonderful review. The knowledge you have really shows when you give all the details of your construction. I'm green with envy, unless my green dress is being reflective. ha... ;)

Beautiful blouse and very helpful review. The details really do make it special and I loved the fabric you used. I think you could make another one in a print. This one looks so good it seems a shame not to have another.

Thank you for this very helpful review. This blouse is on my to do list and your review will be VERY helpful to me when I start. Thanks for all the details, especially on the FBA on this unusually shaped piece.

I love this blouse on you, its so flattering.I made it also but did not use a stretch fabric,alas it didnt fit. How could I have made that mistake. Thanks for a great review

Fabulous fit--and your fabric choice adds so much to the classy effect. I envy your meticulous methodology.

I missed it on your blog where you mention the way you traced multisized. Interesting! I did the same but abandonded it for fear of wasting time on a wadder. I will pick it up where I left off. You really cover so many construction details, simply invaluable review. Thank you so much! Your blouse looks amazing in stripes.

Belinda, this looks absolutely smashing! I love the way the stripes of the fabric really add to the finished look of the garment. Once again, you've done a superb job and your review is exceptionally thorough and very, very helpful. Fantastic!
