Very cute shirt. It does not look like a beginner made it and looks very RTW. I love the bottom waistband. Great job!

Really a nice top, and I LOVE stripes, too. You've done a great job with the top!

Congratulations on a great top. I can tell from your willingness to try things and to learn that you will soon become skillful at sewing! And sewing slowly is a good idea for now; you will pick up speed later.

Great job. I had been sewing for years before I attempted knits, so bravo to you for jumping right in.

I love sewing with knits and your knit top is a winner. A good fit on you and the placement of the stripes makes it a little more intresting. Nice one!

I think that adding the waistband made the top much nicer!

A beginner and sewing Burda, that's fantastic as well as producing a great striped top. Congratulations. I also love the Fabric Store.

Oh... if only I had the courage to do knits (smile)!!! You've done a fantastic job! Keep up the great work!

A shirt for every day. I need something like this in my stash. Great fit! I'm still to try to saw a BWOF pattern (except for a simple Cardi Wrap made out of rectangles and triangles). I'm a little scared about what people say about their instructions... so I definitely think you are very brave, and talented. Keep at it!!! Good luck on you "sewing self education".

Great top. Burda instructions aren't always the most informative, so congrats on figuring out the sleeves. The waistband is a great touch.

Hey nice tee! Looking at yout top I find it hard to believe you are a complete beginner. You did a great job.

You have talent, girl, if you made this as a complete beginner! Very nice look, love the use of stripes. Great job!
