    I laaaaaaaaaaave it soooo much! I’m pretty sure that the birds create the complete look (AKA: the shirt wouldn’t be the same without the birds).

    I love this Fabric- I made a skirt from it and love it!! I think that you can’t go wrong with the fabric and think your shirt is wonderful. Great ruffle… so subtle.

    So fun! That one ruffle is perfect. Keeps it from getting too busy because it’s a focal point and really anchors the shape of the shirt. Well done!!

    I love budgies! :) So I simply love your fabric! The ruffles are awesome! They add that “special something” to your blouse.

    Love the fabric, I wouldn’t have thought to use such a large print on something that is so broken up but it actually worked out nice.

    This is sooo COOL!! I like ikea fabrics, working with them myself. I recently bought the other gray “Cecilia” (with leaves) but I liked this one very much, either. The cut of the blouse is adorable! Very beautiful work!
