    How do I get it to print out at the proper size and not tiny? Hopefully Janice

    I made this top yesterday and really pleased with the result. I was concerned about a possible ‘balloon’ issue with the fabric (I used a crepe de chine. I opted for keeping one side open at the bottom to put ties on. After then fitting again I put discreet hooks and eyes to fasten in order to bring the hip band back together. When they are undone it is still a flattering longline top

      Where do I measure from to extend the back and front pieces?

    The pattern says to extend to 28 or 26", but it doesn’t say where to measure from. Any wisdom on this?

    Please help, the directions dont say how much of the fabric is needed to make this project.

    I can find the pattern but there are no pattern pieces in it. Where do I get the pattern pieces to cut?

    This is my first time getting a pattern online. I really like this pattern. I’m confused. The pattern has a 5 cm square which on my printout is 4.5 cm. Then the pattern says to extend to 28 or 26 cm across and 48 cm long, but it doesn’t indicate what size that is intended for. How do I figure out the extended dimensions for different sizes?

    I can’t figure out how to get the pattern, I love the blouse and would gladly pay for the instructions. Sheila

    What a soft, feminine top … Too perfect for jeans or a silk skirt, or silk suit … I can see it taking me to various places & a range of clothing …. all depending on the fabric used … & with or without embellishments. I just love it … & perfect for a sub-tropical/tropical climate! Thanks for posting …

    I love this! I just bought a blouse a few days ago very similar to this in grey! Can’t wait to make one myself.

      On the project’s main page, there’s a window on the right side that says “Patterns for this Project.” At the bottom of that window is a button that says “Get it now.” Hit that button, and you go to your shopping cart, and from there you can “Print Pattern from Home,” which will open the PDF with the pattern it it. It’s the same with all the other Burdastyle.com patterns. Hope that helps! =)

    Very nice! I used poly satin material (and I’m a size 4 US). It turned out great after some serious modifications to the measurements when cutting the pieces. I took off quite a few inches in width and still had a large pleat that left me with more “bubble” than I really wanted, but I still love the shirt!

      I guess I should mention that part of the reason I had more “bubble” is because the fabric doesn’t fall quite as limp as what is pictured. It tends to want to stand up a little more.
