Your top looks great, I may try it. I read somewhere that cottons - especially interlocks can keep shrinking for the first ten washes and dries. After several short tops I now wash the fabric first and almost overdry it in hopes of eliminating the problem. Sarah Veblen, a PR instructor says to only dry your knit tops for 10-15 minutes in the dryer and then hang them up.

I agree with Linda G! It's a lovely top and I love the color too. I don't think it's too short though, just right in fact. You've inspired me to get tracing my Burdas.

You have made a darling top. If I was thirty years younger I would make it....

Another top I really want to make! I don't think it looks too short, but could you sew some stretch lace trim to the bottom to lengten it? I think the top looks very nice on you!

Another cute top! I find the shoulders too big (wide) for me on lots of things-just place the center front a little past the folded fabric edge to easily modify that particular fitting issue-easy and works well. Your shirt looks great-you've really been sewing up a storm!

Thanks for the warning on the length! I've got this issue, but this pattern is also up as a free download on now...
