I think it's very flattering on you--both in style and in color.

What a GREAT looking top. I keep saying that need to start making more tops but you really have inspired me with this one! I love the style and your fabric choice. They go hand in hand! Nice work!

Looks so nice on you. Appreciated your review as I am interested in making this one up! Very interesting to learn and see how the twist can be placed in different areas. At first, mostly center front, but now moving around. Nice work as usual :-)

Thanks for your comments! @MNBarb: Have you seen this? It looks very helpful: The Quest for the Mitered V-Neck

It's lovely! I think the top looks great overall and the sleeve length on this more practical than the Burda version. I used Sandra Betzina's no-gap wrap technique from Power Sewing to finish the "V" neck for the Burda mock wrap. Basically, to cut a stabilizer tape just a little shorter than the neckline on the pattern piece and sew it folded into the seam alllowances so that the neckline does not stretch out.

Very nice top. Really different design, and it does look well on you! Very flattering. The design is impressive on that and with that fabric, well, it pops. :)

Cute! It's nice to see some reviews of other views for this pattern. Ultimately, I'd like to try them all out.

Oh, and thanks for the photos of the similar RTW tops. I feel so much better about how much money I have spent on my sewing hobby this month.

I second my comment that this top will look good on a variety of figure types. Yours looks fantastic! I agree that it could use a different plan for the facing, front and back neck, and would love to be led to a tutorial for a satisfactory alternative.
