This is the cutest darn top! All the versions I've seen on PR are unique and your print is so spring like and fresh. Beautiful!

I've loved everyone's versions of this, and yours is no exception. Love the floral print!

Lovely tops, both of them! I especially like the purple flower one...and I'll have to look at it again, because I honestly did not notice the flower placement.

Gorgeous! I love the floral print, and the polka-dotted version in your photo album is awesome! I am so going to have to start buying BWOF!

Vintage Joan said...
Great review, as usual. :) Both your tops are really nice. I love the purple one!

I love both of your versions of this blouse.

LOVE the purple flowers. You gotta love BWOF and their necklines.

Nancy K said...
Really good looking on you. Definitely a figure flattering cut.
3/25/09 6:22 PM
ITAdmin said...
This is way cuter than that pattern photo! I can't say that the blouse in the picture does much for me, but yours is great.

Spring has sprung and YOU'RE ready in your gorgeous top! It's so feminine and flirty and just lovely!

Love both of your blouses, but the polka dot one is a stand-out! Great job, as always and a very amusing and informative review!

Very pretty... I love this top. Didn't even notice the big flower until you said something:)

You look so cute in this!

I love the purple print version--purple is a great color on you: you should wear it often :)
3/25/09 10:22 PM
Annette1 said...
What a FANTASTIC review. Of course, we EXPECT those from you, you know. (Nothing like a little pressure!) Your top is SO pretty and SPRINGY! :o) I loved your comment about the chest to neck ratio. :o))) Spoken like a true mathematician. :o) I still LOVE that first version, too.

Your blouses look great. The pricey fabric one is really fabulous. Burda WOF subscription keeps calling out to me even though I have been trying to ignore it.

Awesome top! Very pretty! Fun review.

Wow, beautiful blouses. You always use the best prints!

It's always fun to read your reviews~wonderful blouse and that color is perfect. You look gorgeous.

Thanks for not only a good review, but a fun one! :)) Love that style on you!

I don't see any flower placement issues. I see a very pretty blouse which looks perfect for the lovely weather you are having there. Just lovely!

Great blouse - perfect print!

Stitchcakes said...
This pattern is such a winner! I've liked every one of them. Your tops look great; the floral IS very upscale. You are the only one to notice the flower placement, I think. Love this!

Grammy Gin said...
Love both of them...they seem different from the rest that I've seen reviewed. Thanks for such a nice, detailed review!
3/26/09 4:05 PM
Dei said...
I love this style of blouse on you, despite the risque neckline. :) Gorgeous!
3/26/09 10:48 PM
Karen8320 said...
Louella, this looks so lovely on you! The neckline is certainly not too low - it looks good in your photo - and there is nothing whatsoever wrong with the placement of any flower. It all looks good to me! I love the placements, though, of the butterflies under the collar. Very cute! The chocolate and mint version is also a stunner and I think a short-sleeve version to wear in summer would look fantastic. I love your work!

This looks fantastic on you! Great review!

I really like your sunny new yellow version, too!

You certainly have done well with this pattern. Those are some very pretty tops.

Wow! You are rockin' out on this pattern!! Blouse #3 is perfect for a nice sunny day!

These are great!

Love the third version, too! Not only does this style look great on you, your choice of fabrics and your orientations of the prints give your blouses miles and miles of style!
3/29/09 9:56 AM
Christas said...
All the versions look so nice! I love your fabric choices for each top!
3/29/09 10:04 AM
Pamaro said...
Thanks for the review. This one is on my "to make" list. All three versions look so nice on you. Nice job matching the chevrons on the third version
3/29/09 6:50 PM

You look MAAAAAAAAAAAAAVELOUS in ALL of these tops! What a great use of ONE PATTERN, MULTIPLE LOOKS. :o) I really like your project photo collage, too. Bravo! :o)

Heatherrique, You are stylin' girl! It's amazing how different the same pattern can look with different fabric, color, and print.
