I think both these tops look gorgeous on you, no hint of too much fabric under the arms!

Both tops are lovely. I have just finished this pattern too, in a very light cotton-silk without sleeves (not yet reviewed or blogged). I was planning to add ties to my next version and you've confirmed that! How do yours look tucked in?

Genius tie solution. The soft drape of the olive version is perfect for this style.

I, too, avoided this blouse because it looked very low in front. Now I will give it another look. As a 38DD it may suit me very well! Happy New Years!

Y'know, I really love the look of that plaid version. It seems a bit more structured surely than the flowy green. But it looks really sharp! Nice job with the fabric and the pattern adjustments.

I know this pattern, but I avoided it because, like you, I am small-busted. I like how they look with the ties, I think they are a great addition!

Beautiful blouses! The tie was a perfect add on!

Both of your tops are lovely. I made this top as well and, after seeing yours, I realize mine would look better with ties too. Thanks for the idea and the detailed photos of how you did the ties...genius.

really nice tops both fabrics I love, your fabric stash or I should say your Carol collection is amazing. I had a similar experience with finding a treasure of wool fabrics and another occasion of silk thread ( every color ever made) that I'm still using. Oh the happiness of that experience and yes I laid it all out like you did, I could not be happier. Happy Sewing nicegirl...

I love your reviews. I avoided this top because the photos make the drape look much lower (and so revealing) than the illustration appears

Love these. Very nice style for almost anyone, not just the prime suspect here! ;) I love that this can be casual or dressy.

I think both tops are very pretty in their own way. Great review. Thanks!

Both of your tops came out looking great (lots of work involved), and the underarm billowing is not visible. Underarm billow is kind of a deal breaker, isn't it, but your results are so pretty that I am almost tempted--almost--to trace this one off.

I never even noticed this top in the magazine, but you've convinced me. Love the ties.

Super cute! Very flattering. Love the olive.
