I have the same "freak of nature" problem. You did post 2 reviews - I'm still trying to remember how to download my pictures again!

This is a great top! I laughed so hard at your "freak of nature" comment--as that is a phrase I use all the time! Great review!

Great looking top. Glad it worked for you.

Glad this worked for you-it's an old favorite of mine. too. It works well with the Burda pants. Your outfit looks like a classic tee and chinos combo, but with a more flattering femine fit. I would definitely stick to drapey knits for this, especially for the cowl version, as the neck can get really bulky.

This is one of my favorite patterns, is sooooo versatile! It's my shoulder-fitting template for other knit tops, too. Yours looks great!

I think the key to this pattern is using drapy knits (regardless of what she puts on the envelope). I tried twice with other types of knits and wasn't all that happy with either one (never wore them). I hadn't decided if I would try again, but after seeing yours I think I will.

Looks good with your beige linen pants. I always come back to this pattern because it just fits me well.

This is one of my favorite t-shirt patterns, too. I also love the fit through the shoulders and chest and have considered morphing them onto other t-shirt patterns. I love your version in rayon lycra jersey.

I made several of these and then the pattern went missing. Your cute top makes me want to go hunt for it again. Well done.
