A cute top, and the fabric is really gorgeous.

Very nice top -- I like the drawstring addition and it looks like a great wardrobe piece. I have a very similar Burda envelope pattern, but it's supposed to be edge-to-edge lined. The binding looks like it would be a good way to save on fabric.

Cute! I'm not sure I understand the sizing -- are UK RTW sizes roughly equal to standard pattern sizes?
