I made this top also with a really light weight organy linen. It is one of my favorite summer tops. yours looks great by the way and I was interested in your shirring style

I keep talking myself out of this pattern, but I think you've talked me back into liking it!

You did a beautiful job on this top. It looks great on you. I also am serger-less but have found a 3-step zig zag on my sewing machine that does a pretty nice job on seam finishing.

Thank you all :) I'm not the best person to provide information about fashion - I don't really care. But I can tell what I see on other women :)

Hi Rose. I really like your top. I think it would be still current in Australia but then I am probably not very fashionable! Good job.

I love your top. It is very much my taste, so I think I will have to have a go at my first Burda pattern!

Much nicer than the magazine photo. I guess you are right, this is not as trendy a style as it once was, but it is still super cute and timeless in white. Please consider creating a thread on what is current in France. I am always dying to know.

Really pretty top - your shirring technique looks perfect! I have never tried shirring but you have inspired me to give it a go.

Very cute top with very precise shirring! I wasn't thrilled with the magazine picture of this. Maybe it was the beach cover-up thing. However, I'll definitely have to take a second look at it. Great job!
