What wonderful use of the border print! This does make the blouse stand out.

Nice work, Louella! What a really interesting neckline this is - and you've made great use of the print. It looks good! From your photo, I wouldn't have thought anything about the back yoke but, of course, you know how things fit and suit you best. I think you look great in this top!

Thank you for the pattern comparison. It is interesting to see the similarities and differences and to hear your preferrences and experiences with them.

Well, I'm having trouble deciding if I like the Alge-Burda picture or the seductive model picture the best. It's really neat to see your classroom, but even cooler is this wonderful top, complete with a border print! PERFECT!

Thanks for bringing this top to my attention! It looks great on you! In any case much more appealing than the magazine pictures!

This top is on my to-do list, so it was really nice to read your very excellent review - I totally agree with you that July 2007 has some good stuff in it. I love this style and your version looks just fabulous, I love the fabric you have chosen and the way you have cut it. It looks so good on you.

This is an excellent review to help sewists understand the structure of a garment created by various pattern pieces and designs. I love the print you chose and the way you cut the fabric. Another informative and enjoyable review. Love the Alge-Burda pose—you are so clever!

Cute top! It's very fun and flirty. And you look better than the Burda model. They should dump her and hire YOU!

I love your top and how you incorporated the border print. Very interesting about the similar patterns. I got both BWOF issues out and studied these patterns further. Both are quite nice. You look great in this one as well as your other versions!

Another fabulous top from you Louella! You inspired me to get July 2007 BWOF out and have another look at it to see what would suit me, so thank you!

A great top - I too really like your use of the border print accents on the blouse.
