Robin, you are really creating beautiful garments with your software, and this lovely ruffled blouse is no exception. Yes voile is a stinker to work with, but how pleased you'll be during the hot weather to have this soft, feminine beauty. Lovely, Lily

Robin thank you for your explanation. The fit is beautiful. I think I'm beginning to covet this BML program.

Your tunic is beautiful! I've enjoyed seeing what all you have done with BML. I especially love the ruffles. Beautiful work!

blue mooney, your compliment means the world to me. I voted for your collection in the Timmel SWAP last year (I know I prolly shouldn't divulge that, but oh well). So, it was your SWAP that inspired me!~ :)

Oh thank you all! As you know these comments do boost the morale! Athene, you are observant. In the last few tunics, I realized the bust needed to be decreased. Rather than go back and re-print another pattern, I made the adjustment to the tissue pattern. All I did was cut a horizontal line at the cetner of the side dart leg. I remove a good 1.5 inches all together. Other than that, it is just the fabric and the ruffles pulling it in a bit. In BML I don't need to change my measurements - I just need to decrease the amount of ease in the bustline on the style, next time I print one. I find I do not spend that much time on the computer using the software. Once I have a decent pattern, I use it over and over.

Beautiful! You do such nice work, Robin. I also like your sense of style...like the way you added the ruffles on this top. I'm looking to you for inspiration!

I really like what you did with the ruffles. Your gorgeous cotton voile will be so cool and airy this summer.

Your top is lovely. I've been following your reviews closely as I'm interested in BML. One question - did you change this pattern a bit from the previous two tops -I'm curious as this top photo appears to have a closer higher armhole in comparison to the previous two.
