Very nice! I think the neck binding gives it a more finished look.

What a cute top! It goes so perfectly with the 3032 skirt and the scarf is a great finishing touch (even if unfinished!) Any pattern that uses a yard of fabric is a friend of mine, I'll have to get it!

Deepika, this top looks fantastic on you! The colors are beautiful and I love it with that skirt in the second pic. Wow, it must really be low-cut to start with, but the adjustments you made look great and I think the neckline is perfect on you.

Very pretty top. The coloring of the fabric really looks nice on you. I like what you did to the neckline.

Wonderful top! I'm amazed you were able to get that scarf, neckline binding & long skinny tubes for the ties + the top out of 1 yd. of fabric! (Wow) Maybe you're not a genius, just a magician! (ROFLOL)

Perfection - the fit, the fabric, the colors, the scarf, everything. I think the neck binding adds alot, too. Not bad for a girl in a "sewing slump". ;-)

D, it's just beautiful! I bought this pattern too - I had a dress with this shoulder treatment when I was in high school and I loved it!

Oooh, it's so pretty with the scarf and skirt! I agree with you, that scarf looks better unfinished and soft than with hemmed edges. Excellent save with the binding and deep shoulder seams.

I like your top so much better than the original. Why is burda making everyone look like a hussy these days?

You all really know how to cheer somebody up! And yes with this top I am officially out of my slump Karla :) Amanda you NEED this pattern. But definitely raise the neck. There is no way the pattern photo is from this pattern because its way too low! Pat I am neither :) Just hated to throw the fabric and really this top take so little... .you should definitely try it. Thanks you all for such sweet comments.

Great looking outfit! Don't you love the feeling of stepping out in a completely coordinating ensemble? Especially one you've sewn. Definitely a 'Glamour' DO photo.
