Looks great, Sandi. Very cute top in a great fabric. Did you find the need for a FBA with this pattern?

Well worth the frustration (easy for me to say). This top looks fantastic on you.

Very flattering on you. I like your fabric. I am currently working on a Burda top that has a twist. I was very disoriented for a time, but I muddled my way through. Sometimes it's just best to carry on like you know where you're headed. Unfortunately, that also means breaking out the seam ripper when things go wrong. Great job, as always.

I got disoriented, too, and had to do some ripping.
