I made this top from left over fabric that was used to make my daughters bridesmaid dresses for her wedding in 2010. I highly recommend choosing several sizes smaller for this top if you want the fit to look like the white top in the July, 2012 Burda magazine, because the actual fit is very baggy and not at all fitted. I made French seams for all of the seams which really suits chiffon. I made the tie at the back neck line but will change this to a button and a self fabric loop. The tie looks like something on a hospital gown!!!
