I really like how this turned out, even in your nightmare starvation fabric. Kind of bohemian. The cami underneath helps the neckline problem, and you look great!

Great top. Think this is going to the top of my list for my winter vacation.

The top looks great despite having to fight the fabric to make it work. Great job!

I really liked this top when I saw it in the magazine, and it looks good on you - maybe you can make it again in better fabric? I'm using a polyester fabric right now for what I thought might be a wearable muslin of a dress, but now I'm not so sure about the "wearable" part! We all get fooled into buying these fabrics now and then...r

Lovely top natasha !! A fabulous result given the fabric you were working with. re the length between shoulder and bust point - I normally shorten this length too - by about 0.5 to 1cm on most Burda and New look patterns.
