    wow- I would love to see the photo with you wearing the top. It looks great on a dummy, but it was strange looking in the magazine. Such an interesting shape- needs showcasing on a human to convince me :)

    Wonderful top. It’s interesting but still wearable. It does look high end. Great choice of fabric.

    I plan to trace this pattern tomorrow so I’m very glad to see your lovely top. Your fabric is really great! Does it need a belt or is it ok as it is?

      Hiya – actually it’s much better without a belt

    I love your top. Really glad to see it made up – Burda’s photo for the top was no use at all! It looks as good as I hoped. I have plans for a top AND dress from this pattern, I love the way the folds work. Really like you fabric, too.

    Your top looks good. I just traced this. How is the fit on this design?

      I found it fitted perfectly, I am pear-shaped so I made the lower half of the top in a size 40 to accommodate my good and the upper half in a 38, and blended the two together from the waist with my French curve.

      My measurements are a Burda 40 but I find there is loads of ease in Burda designs so usually opt for a 38.

      Hope that helps :-)

      Thanks – it’s really versatile and I have worn it with skinny jeans and tailored shorts and it goes well with both x
