I was just browsing the Anthropologie site for inspiration and found a top which is nearly identical to this increasingly popular Burda pattern, but without the ties I love your result. I may have to buy this issue!

It looks great - I can see where a heavier knit might droop. Maybe I'll try this one.

Stacy, this is very pretty. I've been oogling this pattern in the magazine, and now I am going right downstairs to trace it off, thanks to you! I like the tie in front, and it provides the finished effect of a belt, which looks so nice.

I have this issue and had planned to sew it this fall out of a lycra knit. Thanks for telling me how the ties work...I will definitely shorten mine.

Stacy, thanks for the timely review - I just traced this pattern off a few nights ago, and I have a lightweight black and white sweater knit lined up for it. I think I might take a few inches off the ties, thanks to your review. It looks great, though, and the color is wonderful on you.

Stacy, it looks fantastic on. Now if I can get out of my sewing slump, this will be one of my first projects.

It looks so much better on you than on the dressform, Stacy. Thanks for taking the extra time to model for us. :)

Now seeing the photo of you with it tied in front I really it like it that way. I like how the ends hang down. It looks better than the way they did it in the magazine :)

Stacy...I love your suggestions for knit fabric types. I am new using knits and before I try this pattern which you can be sure I will now after this review...I need to know what it. In fact it looks better on you than model in magazine.

Love it Stacy! I saw that fabric the other day and Joann's and was going to get some because the color is so beautiful, but DS was ready to go (you know kids!).

Great top! I was wondering how it would look in jersey. Just added it to my "to do" list for my DD.

I agree about the ties - I learned that if you have a long commute, tops that tie in the back are uncomfortable. But cute. This is a beautiful colour!

I just made it last night in a sweater knit, how funny. I love yours!

Stacy, I really like your top. I bought this BWOF top just for this pattern. Thanks for the review.

Cute top! Love that color.

I'd love to see this on you. It's a very bold style with heavy details. Thanks for the review of your top

Love it - now I really have to get this issue!

But wait - this is a top whose entire appeal is the ties. So shorten them to nothing?? How about wearing it with the ties wrapped in front for a bit, and seeing how you like that instead? I've been eyeing this one too, and the last thing I'd want to do to it is cut off an option.

Vonnevo what a good idea :) Stacy, you might like hemming with Seams Great and/or using wooly nylon in the bobbin to keep the double needle hem from making a channel--hope you don't mind the friendly suggestion.

Vonneo - yes, definately! It would also save on fabric too. I don't think that you would need quite as much if you eliminated most of the tie.

Fabulous Stacy !!!! It is oh so stylish :))) Do you think after making this, that the crossover ties could end at the side seams and not continue around the the same way that the under bust section does, on the famous BWOF twist top 04/05 ??
