It is a helpful review--I want view#3!

I love that top #3 fabric! Nice tops. Perhaps you just need to start w/ a smaller size?

Great review. I like your comment about the independents. You are right about too much ease, which I found out too late to make major fixes. I have only used one independent (Revisions) but I am getting the feeling a muslin is mandatory. Actually, I have also made several MacPhee patterns, but hers do not have excessive ease.

looks great, and I love the choice of fabric! It still looks better than all of my tops so far, so I'm jealous!

Ooohhh! love all your tank tops. Your taste in fabrics is amazing. They look so much more than just tank tops. Love them!

What nice-looking tops, and how hard you worked to get there! Very pretty, and isn't it nice to have a TNT pattern now? Great garden, too!

All your tanks are so pretty! And you have such a beautiful garden-Thanks for all the pictures and details!

I wonder if you found the armholes gape. I made a muslin of this top and the fit was just awful through the bust/armhole. I'd love more details on how you scooped out the armholes 'cause yours fit great. Beautiful tops. Even your "wadder" looks better than the results I've seen from this patterns.

You've really been hard at work, LBJ! All your tops look great, IMO, although the more fitted ones really highlight your fabulous figure. I like the changes you made and your tops look great!

I like all versions of your top.

Your "revisions" of the shell seem to have worked out better than the tank--which I have made and am not impressed with. All your versions are very pretty!

Thanks for a very useful review of the pattern. I've come to a similar conclusion as yours, that indies tend to run big.

I wouldn't have know this was the TS top if you hadn't said so! Yours all look so much better than others I've seen from this pattern! Good job on making it work for you! Great review!
