I have a rtw version of this top, where the modesty panel is made the full width of the front, and sewed in at the side seams, so that it fits close to the body. I am going to try this approach with my version, if I can work out the right size to make the insert..

Both tops look great. Love the Manga version, too. Thanks for the review. Sue

Great job, Mina - and I love the manga fabric. And congrats for choosing such a user-friendly Hotpattern for your first shot. You'll get a ton of use from this top.

Love the manga fabric! BTW, I use "hollywood tape" on my low cut tops. Being a teacher, I can't be exposing myself either!

Mina, your new top is gorgeous! I love how you placed the fabric.

Thanks for this helpful review. Yes, you do look smaller than a 20! I think your next one will be great - I love this style.

Great review. I didn't realize there were pointed sleeves on this!

I really enjoyed reading your review. Please show us the manga version when it's done!

The advantage of wearing a camisole, since it is difficult not to ever bend over! :) Glad that came out well for you, despite your sizing difficulties.

Good looking top. There's an article in the most recent Threads magazine that gives instructions on making a loop to attach to low cut garments that (if I remember correctly) loops under your bra to help prevent that gapping when you lean over. I'm going to try that with my next low front top. Thanks for the review.
