Your top looks and fits great, I hope you get used to the openness at front, because it looks beautiful!

You say you are out of your comfort zone with the neckline, but you look great in this. Make more!!

You look smashing in this top! There is a Lekala pattern I am dying to try, but am too daunted by the pdf thing and not sure how to order. Will have to check out squirrellypoo's review.

Oh, this floral version is so pretty on you! The under bust seam looks good, but if it seams a little low hole epwearing, maybe raise it about 3/8".

I really like the lowness of the neckline and the narrow shoulder. Very RTW. Thanks for pointing out this program.

Lovely top! Much better sewn and being worn than languishing in your stash!
