I completely missed this one in the October issue. I like the simplicity of the style - you're right, it's a great showcase for a special fabric. I love the combination of the patterned and contrast fabrics here. Good stuff.

You created a gorgeous blouse. You are so clever, too, to piece the back as you did. Great design element!

I love the bright colors of your top -- your whole outfit really.

Trina, absolutely smashing blouse, made more so by your creative waist/belt insert and rolled cuffs. Love, love, love your use of print, turquoise, and bright pink legs. So completely YOU, and yes, professional with the firm stamp of individuality that you always assert over your designs. Lovely, Lily

Well, the DESIGN ELEMENT of the turquoise belt (= not enough fabric) just MAKES this top. I love it, and I REALLY love that outfit with those PINK TIGHTS and COOL SHOES! I'm now MOURNING the fact that I can't wear PINK TIGHTS.

I love this! I didn't give this pattern a second look in the magazine, but paired with your gorgeous fabric, it's really fabulous!

Very nice, distinctive and original. The pattern's cute, too. Alas, BWOF does not seem to be available where I live (except by subscription).
