Cindy, it's so pretty on you! You guys are killing me. I will surely be the last person to get this thing traced off and done.

Welcome to the Burda Twist Top Club, Cindy! No fair, though: your super hot top makes my version look downright frumpy.

Cute, cute, cute. You can take in the sleeves a bit though. See how they are winging away? Try making that little angle under the arm a little more cut in, or actually shaving away at the curvy part at the underam. This is a winner!

Thanks Cindy!!! I was looking forward to your review and boy is that fabric perfect for this top or what! Its interesting to see how different this top looks on everybody. Your neckline does look wider than the other versions and I think it maybe like that on me when I get to try this. Right now I cant even imagine how that twist must be sewn it. It looks so complicated. Desperately waiting for my burda mag!!!

I just took a look at JackieM's top and was duly impressed and now I see another one that looks just as fantastic! It's very flattering on you and the fabric looks cool. I have to make myself one! Did you sew it up completely on a normal sewing machine?

Very nice top! I like the lower neckline, too. I'm feeling a huge urge to go out and get this issue.

Cute top! I had the same gaping problem with the back neckline. Did stabilizing help? What did you do it with?
