So glad you wrote this review. This top was one of the reasons I purchased this magazine. When it arrived in the mail I had a "what was I thinking moment". It did look a little sack-ish. I really like your top and now you have me recharged to give it a try. You detailed review was very helpful. I will now be careful to measure for size and to use a drapey fabric.

It's very nice and I like the romantic flowy look you've created.

Can I get this pattern at a Jo-Ann's? I tried looking it up on line, but couldn't find it.

Your top is lovely. Thank you for a very helpful review-what a help to see this in a less dressy fabric, and the different pairings with other garments. I will be looking at that magazine again too, I think a tracing session lies ahead.

I liked this top in the magazine, and I love your version! Thank you for letting us know about the ease, I will have to cut a smaller size than usual.

Burda should show your version instead of their own. Your top is great, and you have me reconsidering this pattern.

I've been looking at this blouse pattern. You may have just convinced me to download it. Lovely blouse.

Love your top! I liked this top as well when I first saw it in the magazine. I tend to like the patterns in Burda that others 'trash', LOL.

Well, you make it look lovely and definitely not a sack!
