Checked my pattern, and I cut the tie in the length for size 44, one size larger than the pattern (not on purpose).

Looks great on you! Love how it has a built in cami. Thanks for the photos

Great top. Helpful review. I just got my Burda issue a few days ago and had already planned to make this one.

Beautiful fabric! You did a lovely job. I saw this in the magazine and liked it, too, but didn't like the fabric they chose (not a lime green kind of person). You have convinced me to give it a try. And I had no idea they had more pix on the web. Thanks for the tip!

Wonderful top, great fabric on you. But when did they start selling fabric at Disneyland, LOL. Since we're heading up to Disneyworld in April, I'd enjoy it even more if fabric shopping were included with our daily passes:-)

Yummy! What a nice infusion of florals. I didn't know about the built-in cami and now I'll just have to try this pattern.

Very RTW-looking. Love the bright colors on you.

Melissa, Melissa, Melissa. Perhaps if you'd stop cranking out such great stuff at the pace you do, I'd actually SEW something myself! As it is, there's not enough time to read all of your reviews AND sew. ;) Love this top! It's just great. Oh...and all of the other things you've just reviewed? They're great, too! That's totally cheating, I know, but hey, time's a'tickin! :) :)

Gorgeous top, great print and looks fantastic on you. Thanks for the review - I want to try this one, too!

The looks like a perfectly wearable looks great on you, very flattering. I'm glad burda is putting up additional pictures of the garments, many times I thought the "artistic" layouts of the models, all but eliminated any possibility of seeing the garment lines.

Stylish top! ;-)

I like this top.

Great top Melissa. I must check what I did with the tie-length, as I didn't do anything special with that on purpose.

What a great top! I just know you're gonna make another... :)

Really helpful review and your top looks great, perfect fit on you. I have this traced and ready to sew this weekend and will check those ties before I cut!

Melissa, this is beautiful! I love the fabric and you look so pretty in this top. Thanks for the excellent review.

I like how you have centered the chrysanthemum! You look great in the top. This pattern is on my list of things to make.

Great style and fit, Melissa! I also adore your version!

I was already planning on making this for DD- thanks for the tip on the ties and all the other helpful info, your top looks fabulous!

I love your wrap top. This is the one pattern that I really want to make from this issue but I'm still waiting for it to be delivered.

This may be my next knit top - between your review and Sigrid's, I'm convinced. Thanks for the warning about the ties.

Great top, Melissa. The flowers just pop on this fabric. Another must make BWOF. Thanks for all the tips.
Padmé said... (1/9/08 6:13 PM) Reply
I agree with Leslie, this is definitely a must make.

Your Asian top is very cute. I like the style and if I was your age I would make one.
Leslie in Austin said... (1/9/08 5:29 PM) Reply
That's it. Now I have to throw aside all other projects and copy this top. The bright colors on a black background are really flattering to you! Thanks for all the tips--they'll come in handy for sure!

Thanks for the tip about the ties! Your top turned out really cute!

Looks great!

I have this on my very long list of patterns to sew, so when I get to it I will check the ties very carefully before I cut! It still looks nice and now you can make it in your good fabric and it will be fabulous. It is a very flattering top.
