Ooooo!! Pretty! Love the pink and the drapey front. Appears someone's exercise is paying off big time--you look great, Katharine! :-)

This top is luscious and you look great, contrary to your intro sentence. That's an interesting comment about petiting the bodice and sleeves at the armhole, if I understand correctly. Will have to try it, since I'm short and a little busty.

Your top is lovely. I have that issue and was going to give one pattern a try so now I have been inspired to d try this one. I can't read a word of dutch.

Thanks Leslie! I'm just starting to show my weight loss. Penny, that's right, the armhole adjustment makes you look slimmer! Knitter. give it a try! It's so cute, and can be done w/o Dutch.

Love it! I really like Knipmode patterns; I think they are a bit more inspired than Burda. I can almost see making this top out of some sort of stretchy sari-like fabric...

Good Job! Isn't great to follow pictures!! I once did a pattern following the pictures because the instructions in the pattern, by mistake I suppose, were in French. Usually here in Canada, you get one sheet in French and one in English; in this pattern however, they were both in French. I am not as good in French as I once was (when I was in school about a million years ago).

It *is* great to have illustrations to follow along with--especially with sparse magazine instructions. Annika, I'm starting to side with you & prefer KM patterns to BWOF. Thanks Mini, Gigi & Els for your compliments too!
