Mmm. 19 inches. I think I'd need a bathrobe to cover up the waist if I attempted to wear this to lounge at home after Labor Day :-). Luckily, it looks like it'd be fine with white shoes too :-). Looks great though, shortening the dress version would definitely work for me. And you of course look smashing in anything :-).

Very nice and comfy Cidell, so much so i dug my issue out...and hey I may just make it too. BTW there is a CB seam...maybe reason for extra 1.25 in back . Thanks for tips using interfacing strips...never thought to do that on knits. This looks really nice on you, wonder if I should lower tie placement if I lengthen it? Great layering idea, extra warmth over T shirts...over gym clothes, chilly morns bringing kids to school. Yes I'm going to trace it now ! :) THANK YOU !

Wow, this looks so nice on you! You'd never know you had jimmy it around to fit it on the fabric. (And how likely are we to find a knit in 64" width anyway? I see them rarely, but ONLY rarely.) Very classy!

It looks good, Cidell. It seems that many of us have issues with the low necklines on BWOF patterns. Luckily, wth the absence of seam allowances it is easy to tape the pieces together and check the fit before cutting out the fabric. I'd love to see you make this in a slightly longer length--it would be stunning.

You are so skinny! :)

Oh, you svelte body -- looks terrific!! You can easily layer this over anything so the shortness won't matter so much.

As always with anything you make it's wonderful Cidell! And of course your fab figure helps too...... I think not only will you inspire me to sew more, I think I may even try to get a few pounds off as well!!!

This is a classic and looks great! You did a great job. I have some tops in this style, not Burda, but I definitely know what you mean about comfort. It's an easy style to wear! Great review!

Lovely top. It's said before, you can wear this like it is easily, but also over anything you like.

This is so cute on you! This could be great with wide leg pants and a dressier looking knit, too. I think you should make more of these. Very flattering!

Very pretty Cidell - and you are so beautifully shaped that I am going green with envy but seriously - you do look marvellous in this but it is definitely not for anyone with a figure like mine!!

It is very much a ballet top! Very cute.

I've loved that pattern since it came out--and never sewed it. Now I think I'll give it a go. Yours looks great, and I rather like the softer ties. Thanks for the construction tips.

Looks fab! Sweat-suit alternative... Tim Gunn will be so proud! :) I just made a nearly identical top from a 1950s vintage pattern! Haven't reviewed it yet, but the similarity is uncanny. It's Advance 7701.

Good for you for giving this pattern another go - and a successful one at that! Looking forward to the rest of the ensemble.

So cute, Cidell! And, you have the shape to wear it! I would have to lengthen to close the gap between midriff & waist! Anxious to see the entire outfit.

This looks great on you; thanks for the tips!

Burda should do an article on you, or at least use you as a model! You have an uncanny ability to display many of their designs better than they do! =) I didn't look twice at this pattern at the time, but now I will have to go back and check it out.

That top looks great on you. The color choice does make it look more classic.

What a super sweatshirt alternative! You better know that you look smokin' hot in that thing. Have fun!
