I love your version of this top. Your neckline change worked really well.

Thanks, as always, for showing those too clever alterations! What creative slicing and dicing you perform to get such exquisite results! Love the fabric, too. Bet you get lots of real world compliments on this one.

Wow! This was a lot of work for a knit top. It is a fun and funky design and, with all of your adjustments, it will probably be a favorite garment.

What a great looking top-I admire all the detail you included in the review and the amount of work you put in to get such a great fit. I love that fabric also ;-)

You've had to put in a lot of effort to make the pattern work for you, but it's been worth it. The neckline is perfect.

Pretty fabric and a very nice result on the twist! I like your instructions for raising the neckline and the doing the back. Great job!

(Love how your hair in front flows with the pattern design and fabric choice... A "silly thing", but very pretty ;D)
