I have been looking at this top for summer and so I was very happy to see your review. It looks great on you and the idea of back darts is a good addition. I am still not very happy with all my results in knit fabrics so a question. Doesn't staystitiching stretch out the neck line? What do you do to prevent this?

Great! I just love it when someone who does an FBA does a review. Thanks, I was thinking of doing this top. It looks fab on you.

Thanks so much for diagram tip. It can be a challenge figuring Burda WOF sometimes. I love the way your top fits you, its superb. Lovely mother daughter picture, you both look so pretty and the skirt fabric too !!

Looks like you made the most of that fabric from your Wazoodle grab bag. Beautiful, and fits so well, with the addition of the back darts.

Great job! I really like the added darts in the back. Thanks for reviewing this and thanks especially for the strap directions. I will have to try this one.

Love the neck line, both front and back. I'll have to watch out for this issue when it comes out here.

Very nice. I might try this one. I have to make the same alterations you do including that underarm one.

That shirt looks great! I love the back darts, gives it a really pretty look. Wish I had a pool to float in too!

You did a great job. You always do. (: I'm very impressed by your ability to get so much done, wrestle with the WOF directions and write such helpful reviews for us. With a full house!

Vibrant colors for two obviously vibrant ladies. Your daughter is sweet looking. Love the top and the shaping of the neckline.

The top looks great on you. Gorgeous neckline!

Gorgeous top! I agree with Touran -- the lines of the design are great! The shoulder strap construction sounds intriguing but I'm going to have to study your drawing and the directions to undestand them. Thanks for putting that in the review! It's very helpful! Adorable DD -- you both look so pretty!

Beautiful - I love the lines of this design and the color and shape are lovely on you. I think I'll try it, too. (What a pretty DD!)
