Kristinlala, I followed Burda's instructions to finish the edge with a narrow zig zag, you can see more details of this step on my blog if Burdas directions make so sense (not unusual!). I'll add a link in the review.

LOVE this blouse! How did you finish the edges of the ruffles?

I LOVE your blouse! Beautiful print and great idea to add the waist tie. I liked this pattern in BWOF but hesitated making it because it looked too boxy. It looks great with the waist tie.

Fabulous fabric and what a great idea to add a tie belt. You've inspired me to try this pattern again

I love the style but much more the result. "Ohh what a nice blouse", I said by myself when I saw this!

Very cute top. I especially like the tie, it adds a lot.

Your fabric is gorgeous and you've transformed this blouse fabulously with the tie belt! Thanks for sharing. :)

wow! what a lovely top. with a paisley like this I think you could easily be just as distinctive in another print or even a solid

that is exactly why I passed over this the first time, not enough fitting, but your idea of adding ties is great1 It works well.

This top came out very nice. Adding the belt was a good idea too. I like the fabric. Nice job : )
