When I found this fabric, I couldn’t resist making these tops. My fabric looks similar to the model picture, but it is really small black stars on a dusty pink buff satin. After reading other reviews for this pattern, I noticed it seemed to run generously fitted, so I stuck to my standby Burda size and successfully made my tops in a woven instead of a stretch knit which is called for. There is a side zip in the full length top to account for the lack of stretch and my sleeves were also cut differently, on the fabric’s bias, to give me a bit of natural stretch. I love the fun versatility of this pattern! The insides, excepting the hems, are entirely in French seams.
