I love this top on you! I tried this pattern too, but I was not happy with how it looks on me, but on you--adorable!

Never would have looked twice at this pattern until seeing your version. Yours is rockin', particularly the way you've styled your whole outfit. Wonder if this pattern has been in any issue of BWOF...

There are no seam allowances in Germany. Burda persists on saying that it would be better for fitting purposes to no add them in the pattern but to leave to the seamstress herself. On the other hand they say that because it is usual to do this in America: what the heck, let them have it ... The only exception is the "Ma▀schnitt", the pattern made for your measurements. Very nice top, btw :-)

This top is fabulous. You couldn't have picked a more perfect fabric for it. Your entire outfit is RIGHT ON! I've had this pattern on my wish list and forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me. Your review will be helpful when I start working on the pattern.

Love your fabric and the bias-cut bottom panel! You've put together a stylish ensemble that looks fantastic on you!

Love this look on you! The black & white plaid is perfect for this type of top. LOVE the tights!!!!! (I'd also like to know if this appeared in a BWOF.)

WOW. Awesome as usual....I always end up saying that! BUT, your sense of what to put together is great and rarely is there something not just perfect!

Really cute top, it looks great on you. I think I'll pick this one up myself now!

Great top! The fabric really makes it -- not only because of the lovely drape, but also the lines of the oversize check. Sometimes these kimono sleeve tops can be, for lack of a better word, stumpifying, but the long lines keep you looking lithe and lovely. Nice job!

Very smart and distinctive.

Great styling and super gorgeous on you! The fabric is perfect for this top, and I really like the bias cut lower band.

Great outfit and you definitely hit it "out of the park" with your choice of this fabric and pattern.

Oh, Nicegirl - you used the word "fungibly." Correctly. I'm swooning ... *sigh* ... Oh, and the top's nice too!
