The final result is absolutely the cutest, but getting there was...phew...the knot was so confusing and I used a very lightweight knit so ripping out the stitching was difficult and tearing up the fabric, so my advice is to cut a few "throw away" pieces and practice the knot before using the actual fabric to make the finished shirt. I only have one attempt and the pic shows the final result. When I get a chance to perfect the knot I will update!
The result is very attractive and works very well with many different bottoms/looks. I found the instructions for the knot quite confusing but, after making three tops of varying weights of knit, I have achieved a satisfactory result.
