This looks great on you and I love the fabric! Thanks for the fabric recommendations - I made a similar style boxy top from an older Patrones issue last year and I totally agree about boxy styles needing drapey fabrics.

Potato sack...NOT It is such a great fit and look.

You COULD wear a 'potato sack' and look beautiful in it, I'm sure, but this is so much nicer! ;-) I love the combination of the drapey, elegant fabric with the casual pattern and just love how this turned out. BurdaStyle surely has been in a sad state of affairs lately, but they still come up with appealing patterns once in a while and their drafting is top notch. Enjoy wearing your cool new top!

I don't think I even noticed this pattern in this magazine, I now just have to follow your lovely interpretation, fabric is so spot on!!!

Terrific review and ideas. Your top is beautiful.

This is so cute on you. Gorgeous fabric and lovely work. After the potato sack comment, perhaps the highest compliment came from your daughter with the request for you to make one for her. That's really neat!

Such a pretty top - what terrific fabric to make this style in too. It makes it really striking.

If your daughter wants one too, then you know you've sewn a winner! Your top does look very pretty on you, and your fabric is a very nice choice!

Excellent choice of fabric and it looks beautiful on you. But I agree with a previous poster: even a potato sack would look great on you!

Oh cute top, and it looks smashing on you. :D And I love the comments from your daughter!

Great top! It's one of those patterns that reads sack-ish until you see it on, and then WOW it looks great!

OMG you hair is so long. I like that boxy top. It also caught my attention, I have a burned silk to make it for next summer. Your choice of fabric is excellent. You look beautiful, as usual. I have to go see you in QC city. xx
