Patty, the hole is still there, but I tied the knot so tight that you can't see it. I think that is just the way it fits women with a smaller bust (I had to tie it tighter to keep it close to my chest). Larger chested women might find that the hole shows, but I don't know for sure. I hope that explaination makes sense. :-)

Yes thank you for the review! I loved the pattern the second I saw it and it is on my list of things to make. It looks fantastic!

I love your top. It looks great. I don't see the hole that is under the knot on both of the model's tops in the magazine. Did you do anything to avoid this? The hole that shows skin BELOW the knot is the main concern I have with this pattern. Great tip about doubling the front.

Wonderful top! You look fab in black, Melissa!

This is wonderful on you. It will definitely be a winner. Thanks for the suggestion about doubling the frint. The first twist top made me subscribe to BWOF now I'm glad not to miss an issue and have this one ready to make.

Melissa, you've done it again. Fabulous top! Maybe I need to try out Burda.

Great looking top! I think I will put this on my LONG list of items to make from the magazine.

Wat a great looking top on you! I will have to try this one. Also, thanks for the lining/facing tip. I will keep that in mind

Very flattering, Melissa! I may have to go get this issue...

Thanks for your sweet comments ladies! And yes, it's the March issue, that is what I get for doing a review late at night, apparently I can't type! LOL All fixed so others can find it later - thanks for pointing that out!

It does look just like the appealing top in the magazine (as Debbie noted, it's 03-2007-121B from the March issue). I was hoping someone would review it. Thanks for sharing your happy sewing experience.

Looks like you got a perfect fit with this top. Thanks for the great review.

Your top looks great. I've been eyeing making that one too, and your review about the upper part of the bodice and the ties is really helpful.

Very cute Melissa! You look good in black. If you didn't want to face the whole upper bodice (good idea BTW), you could just face the end of the ties so the wrong side doesn't show. BTW, this top is really in the March 07 issue -- I went looking for the line drawing.

Fab top, yes flattering indeed. I just love a new knit top with fun features. Thanks for your review. Still waiting for my issue : (

Lovely top. Looks great on you. Since I received this issue, I wanted to make it, but have not done so yet. Now I'm happy I have read your review first, so that I can make the upper front double! I also didn't think about that, but had my doubts about the hemming.

Flattering top. I like your idea of making the upper front double.

Love it! I also like your idea of making the front double. I would have never thought of that. :o)

Great top! I think you're right - it's destined to be a classic.
