What a lovely blouse. I love your Paris fabric. I have been wondering about this blouse, and I'm glad to see your informative review. I'll add it to my to do list.

Love your rendition of this top! Great use of your left over fabric, too!

A cute and distinctive top. Yours is much nicer than the original, which I find rather prissy.

This is adorable on you, and I'm glad you found a pattern to use up the rest of that fabric.

This is one of my picks for that issue! I have it in line to make. Thanks for the review it was very helpful. I will have to lengthen the bodice for me and I think I will alter the back as you did, for my sway back. Great review!!

Treena, this is a fantastic pattern and I'm so glad you had enough of the Paris fabric left over to whip this up. I can't think of a better, nicer looking fabric for this pattern! I've been admiring this top since my co-worker made it and wore it a few weeks back but now you have convinced me that I need to pull out this issue and make it! Bravo! Beautiful job. Thank you for the descript review with loads of photos! Very helpful!!

I love your version of this! I like it without the bow.

Second time I've seen this pattern reviewed this week alone, and I love it every time I see it! That fabric is . . . awesome (a word borrowed from by 16y.o. dd, but one that feels right in this case), maybe even fierce. Fiercely awesome? Love it, anyway.

I love it! The fabric and fit are perfect. I'm so happy to see your review for two reasons: I've had this pattern on my radar for some time now but worried about the fit on us gals with smaller sized girls so I think your review verifies that perhaps this pattern is sized on the small side. Thanks for a very helpful review.
