Nice to know about this top fitting a little big. I tried a similar top (B5495) and was quite surprised at how fitted it ended up being. This one might work better for me. Love the buckle you used.

Great top! I just finished making mine yesterday and love it too. Yes , note about instructions, they have their lefts and rights reversed. Indeed just go by looking at diagrams and you will be fine. And Mazzy girl, the front is very similar to reg twist top patterns, in fact you could probably use a reg twist top pattern to make this , slip buckle on one front side before, gather other front side and then joining under bust seams . The buckle takes place of the twist. And yes it runs a tad big, not fitted like pattern says.

I like it a lot.

Mazzygirl, I don't know which twist front you mean. this front just has the left through the buckle with the right being gathered under the left but not attached to it, if that makes any sense! As I said, reading the instructions was painful but the diagrams work! They call the left front the piece that is on the lower left, but it is the upper right so reading just confused me!
