Great top! I wish my serger could do an overstitch. I agree that Burda necklines are too low. This one looks great on you though.

This is a great basic top and will serve you well in your new wardrobe!

Maybe there are several other reviews already, but yours is unique with the attractive coverstitch detail. I appreciated the tip on starting and stopping this stitch. Cute top.

The topstitching makes all the difference. From a nice basic top it's a special top. Well done and great inspiration.

Terrific style, color and coverstitching detail. Really nice top.

A simple top made better with your decorative stitching. I am going to have to try that soon. It's also a very pretty color. I have to agree with you about FFRPs solution to broad or narrow shoulders, which is my problem, in raglan sleeves. Last time I made a raglan sleeve (my tan linen jacket) I used the method in Fitting and Pattern Alteration a Multi-Method Approach by Liechty, Pottberg, and Rasband. They have you add to the front seam on the body at the sleeve(narrow is reversed) and then added to the sleeve seam that meets it, and at the neckline. Much better fit without a bump on the shoulder seam.

The top looks perfect on you - great fit, great colour, jazzy topstitching.

I really like this top! The coverstitching makes such a difference and accentuates the style lines beautifully. It looks great!

Yes, I like it, too. Where do we place our orders? Seriously, if I saw this in an LLBean catalog, I would order it. The coverstitch makes the perfect decorative stitching. Thanks for hint about "helper" fabric placement at the ends of the seams.

Nice-looking top! The scoop neck is flattering!

Lovely top! I'd like a top like this for myself. :)

Great color and coverstitch detail! I love it!!!!This is so much cuter than the magazine version with the mismatched stripes.
