Lovely fabric in this top.

I think the fullness issue almost looks like they gather or ease areas on purpose now on tops. Wonderful fabric and I think it looks great on you.

Smart looking top and divine fabric!! I have 12 issues of Burda and have not made one thing!!! Perhaps I should try this one!!!

It's a pretty top, but it looks like you may have done more of an FBA than you needed. Maybe this top already had more room than usual drafted in. I wonder what would happen if you just folded out a tuck vertically right over the bust point. It would narrow your shoulder and remove some of the fullness too. You could pin it in on this one to see what happens. Each knit is so different as well, so that may be part of your extra fullness problem. Really, it looks good on you, though!

This is really a nice top, Linda, VERY wearable, indeed. I wonder how it would be if you made the neck/shoulders a size smaller? I really LIKE that neckline though, just the way it is. :o) Maybe make the shoulders/armholes a size smaller, but leave the neck alone, if you know what I mean. Of course, you realize I have the LEAST experience with KNITS of anyone. :o) I KNOW you'll get the fit perfected, and in the meantime you'll be getting lots of compliments on this one. :o)

I wish the fit would have turned out like you wanted. I also wish I would have made my top out of YOUR fabric.... so much cuter than what I chose when making this top!
