    This was a beautiful blouse. Very flattering. The zippers were a pain and next time I make it, I might use tiny buttons and loops on the sleeves.

    The pieces are mis-marked on the numbers. I have one piece marked " ! 2 ! " and two pieces marked “3.” Not sure what the exclamation marks were about, but it seems Burda can’t correctly accomplish even most basic numbering of their pattern pieces. This makes me very unhappy, because while I love the look of this blouse, but I don’t have the time to work through (nor the fabric to risk) their minimalist instructions, trying to figure out what goes where.
