Wow, Burda should replace their picture with your daughter's. I so agree with your assessment of the original...why pleat my tummy?! But this is wonderful...bravo to both of you for seing the true potential.

This is so great. I liked seeing how it looked tucked in too. Thanks for including comments on your alterations. They sound like a great idea!

Love you version, I hated the version in the magazine. Great looking blouse, clever DD.

I really disliked this in the magazine - nice to see that a little rethinking can turn out such a great blouse. Your daughter looks great in it and it's far more flattering than the original version.

wow, this looks great in your version. I instantly discarded this style from the magazine picture because of the low bust and big tummy possibilities it offered, but perhaps I'll rethink

Beautiful blouse! I always figured the gathers would hit my post-baby bust just about right.

Very pretty blouse. Your version is much nicer than the one in the magazine.

Very cute blouse. I had to go back and forth between the two versions several times (my eye is not a quick as yours!) and I totally agree. The magazine version looks sort of "dropped" and quite unflattering - I love your version.

Fine looking top! Your version is stunning.

Such a pretty blouse! The embellishment is very nice. I skipped over this blouse - glad you brought it to my attention by reviewing yours.

Your version of this shirt is beautiful--so much better than BWOF's picture.

Good call on the gathering. I also thought the gathers at the waist looked weird in the mag! It's lovely made up in your crisp white fabric.

Very nice indeed. The neckband sounds a complete pain. Glad you can make things from the mag for your teen daughter.

That is so nice, I love what you have done with the neckband. So much better than the version in the mag.

Your version of this blouse looks great, much more flattering than the burda version. Thanks for the helpful review.
