    A lot – its very wide so I would suggest that you go down as much as two sizes!

      I would also suggest that you measure the pattern before drafting to get a better feel for dimentions and final size to go for. Have done that on a few patterns and have noticed that almost always I need to go down a size. For example I recently made the pants that are in the same photo as the cowl top – measured the pattern before drafting and made the next size down and they fit like a glove.

    I actually made this top and it came out huge – carefully followed the instructions to ensure measurements fitted me, followed seam allownce instructions and even marked seam allowances on the cut out fabric! Cannot wear the top as is as front drapes down just too much – only other option is to wear back to front so that the back is exposed instead. Would carefuly consider taking a size or two down from what Burda says as you may end up having the same problem as me. Otherwise a wonderful top which I was looking forward to wearing.

      how much ease are we talking about? I just ordered my fabric so thanks for the heads up. I’ll probably go one size down…hopefully that’ll do it…

    this is so pretty, would be wonderful with beaded straps or contrasting fabric/textures etc.

      Before you go into making this top a word of warning – see my post on it
