I love how the rib knit adds dimension to the gathers and twist - stunning.

Great review and great looking top! Just got the magazine by mail and looking forward to sewing it. I will probably start with a sz 42 - that's my usual Burda WOF size... is that the same for you?

I like this twist better than "the original" - and it only took 2 hrs? Wow.

sewing for fun - yes, I'm a 42 in BWOF and also in KnipMode. And Christina - yes, I actually looked at my watch for once! I started at 2pm and I was bugging my boy for a photoshoot just as it turned 4!

I actually have this issue, and this is on my list to make! However, I swear that I am spatially challenged when it comes to twist tops and need help, which you have so kindly provided! I loved this top in the magazine and even more on you.

Great top and excellent review. I happen to be spatially challenged, so if I were to make this top (if I had the magazine, etc., etc.) your directions would be sooo helpful.

I love your top. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the info on your site--I loved this in the magazine but wasn't sure I could figure it out.

How wonderful that you provided such excellent instructions on your site for this very beautiful twist top. I too like the uniqueness of the neckline and the graceful placement of the fabric folds. This is an altogether smashing knit top, and you look beautiful in it. Lovely, Lily
