Odd question to those who have made the knit top in Burda 7208 pattern... my personal preference in knit tops is a v shaped neck in the front into a rounded back neckline. How much/would/is it possible to more or less flip the front to back and back to front?

Thanks so much

I haven't made this pattern but I think it would be easy to redraw the neckline if it has a waist marking line on the pattern pieces.
Lay the back pattern piece on tracing paper. Redraw the pattern except for the neck seam.
Then switch out to the front pattern. Line up the marked waist line and line up where the shoulder seam ends at the neckline. Trace the front neckline on that back pattern.
Then repeat the process using the front pattern piece to start.
You can probably get away with just redrawing the neckline on the back with a tissue extension taped to it, then cut the V into the front pattern piece. But personally, I would prefer to keep my original pieces intact in case I need to redo or recheck something.
