I was shocked when I read one of BWOF 2008 patterns reviewed. I guess I shall have to wait. Great top. What I like about this one is that it is more modest and more appropriate office wear, etc.

Mailman had better get here soon. This is a really cute top, and yet again, I like the "real" version better than BWOF's pictures. Nice job.

Very pretty, Sigrid! It's so flattering, and I love the black-and-white fabric. Your stitching is neat as a pin! :o)

Nice style top!

Great review, Sigrid! I am hoping that my issue will arrive soon as I would like to make this top. I particularly like the fact that it is not extremely low cut as I find so many BWOF to be. I do not have my serger with me, so it will be an adventure working with knits without one! Is your fabric very stretchy? Any lycra in it?

I am so jealous that you have this issue already! I can't wait for mine to arrive as this is on my list. Thanks for the review and yours looks terrific.

Wow, I never even noticed the cami inset on this top. Your top looks wonderful. Thanks for reminding me to give this one a look again.

Very cute top and it looks great on you.

I got my issue and I am so glad to see that you made this with less than 2 yds by seaming the ties and I have lots of knits that are about 2 yds. Much better use of the fabric. Can't wait to make my own.

This looks really cool. I can't wait for my Jan issue to arrive. Thank you for showing your pattern layout. I might do something similar to efficiently use my fabric.
