Nancy, this is a very helpful review. I'll look to see what BWOF suggests for the pockets, since your method sounds like the traditional Vogue method I'm used to. Anything else sounds weird. Overall this style interested me because it looked sleek in black. I'll look for your dress with interest Thanks!

I had to check the magazine for the pockets description and I canīt find anything odd with them, but I learned to sew with Burda...and I have the swedish translation.

I would like to make this dress for my daughter, so I would be very interested in your version. It is good to know you can leave out the zipper. Thanks for a very helpful review.

Nancy, thanks for doing such a helpful review. I'm planning on making the dress version of this fairly soon - I bought a beautiful moss-green eyelet at Kashi's last week - and you've probably answered all my questions before I asked them. Cute top, can't wait to see your dress.

Wonderful look (at least in my opinion) and I can see why you like the yoke!
