Katharine, thanks for referencing that article on Burda's fit! I printed it out for future reference. Sue, you made a marvelous top! Can I send you my measurements? ;)

It must be so nice to wear stretch rayon all day! Lowers the blood pressure. Burda patterns are drafted with a forward shoulder--read here

Thank you for the detail. Did you draft the sleeve pattern or use one from another purchased pattern? That fabric is fabulous. Marijo

After a week of mostly "reverse sewing!", this is a welcome review. Love both tops, even the upside down one. I've located a source for this pattern, too.

Thanks so much for the nice comments guys. I thought you'd all appreciate my sewing the bodice upside down on the muslin! smvite: I just finished the edge with the coverstitch machine. Scalloping would be a nice touch too.

Love the fabric you used!! I wore my top the other day and I also noticed that the shoulder seam sits forward about an inch. Glad to hear it's not just me. :D

Great review and beautiful top!!! Nice to know that even experienced sewers that I look up to make silly mistakes sometimes..! ;-) I love it with the sleeves, and will definitely add longer sleeves to a few of mine... I LOVE this top, just finished 2 (one sleeveless, one capsleeved)! Love the fabric too, very pretty!!!

A gorgeous top and a very informative review.

did you do a scallop on the neck edge? I looks like it. Also, my shoulder seams were about 1" forward on mine - I just figured it was a "design detail" and left it :) Great top!!

I can't say that I "love" about sewing that one always finds new errors to create ;) but your top is really wonderful! Thank you for the tips.
