Your finished top looks lovely! I was looking for a pattern to test out some shirring, so will give it a go.

As soon as I got the newest issue I loved this design. I LOVE it sewn in olive! This is just beautiful. This was already on my list to make. Your lovely top made me move it up closer to the top of the very LONG list I have. Sooo pretty!

I didn't notice this top when I flipped through my Burda, but I would have had a photo of your gorgeous garment been included! Lovely top. Thanks for the helpful hints.

Very cute! I hadn't noticed the side zipper in this, they are kind of a pain. Thanks for the tips on the elastic.

Beautiful top. I would love to see a picture of you modelling it. I fell in love with it when I saw it in the magazine though I'm afraid I may be too tall for the style.

Absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see the skirt you're making to go with it.

Love that blouse! Thank you for pointing out the zip on the side. I'm not fond of side seam zippers, and i wonder if this could be made in a knit fabric? You did a great job using the silk though.

Love, your blouse, over looked that pattern entirely, I will take a second look. How inspiring !

I love this top too and had problems with my muslin and the elastic. It would break or slip through my casing. I think i will use your approach and continue, thanks for giving me inspiration again!
