Diane, Thank you for the "burrito" tip on this review. I really like the style, and your version is just beautiful. I must give it a try.

Diane, thanks for the tip on using the burrito for this shirt. I did it and it worked perfectly. I made a muslin of this shirt several years ago and rejected it because the proportions seemed wrong for my figure. I recently tried it again with a full bust adjustment. Now I really like it, especially with the improved collar treatment.

Diane E. I just finish making this shirt out of some stable striped knit I have had for several years. I also have some slinky that I am thinking about using to make one of these tops. Yours is really quit nice.

The idea is to begin applying the under and upper collar away from the end of the collar in front, so that you get a clean turn at the neckline. I'm going to experiment later on.

Hi Mary Ann, the burrito technique is described and detailed in both "Power Sewing Step-byStep" and "No Time to Sew" by Sandra Betzina. I'm not totally sure it would work on this shirt, but some variation might.

Very pretty! Darn it, it's one of the few TS/LH patterns that I don't own - yet. :-)

What is the burrito technique? (I forgot to ask in my previous comment.) Is there a written reference somewhere?
