Beautiful colors for spring (it must be tulip time in NL) ! Your review is very lively and well explained thank you. You made me smile with that part about you not reading your own reviews ;-). I also share with you the difficulty of sometimes rating patterns with the existing rating levels.

Fabulous top, Sigrid, in this fun and lovely fabric (I really love pink and orange together). Your use of lingerie elastic for the shirring technique was brilliant and instantly solved a problem I have waiting in my sewing room, where my shirring using elastic thread looks weak. I'll immediately replace with lingerie elastic, as the shirring on your lovely top is perfect. Thank you, Lily

Love this top Sigrid! I want one too. I think that I will make my Ottobre t first before I make another knit from BWOF. The sleeves on this top fit so much better than the BWOF sleeve in your first review

Thank you so much for your photos of the neckline. I've been puzzling that over while reading in bed (WOF is my bedtime reading) and I could not figure it out! The photos are brilliant and your top looks great.

Thank you all for your compliments. And I did not change the neckline. I also was afraid that it might be too low, but when a had traced the pattern I thought it was high enough for me, which it is.

Excellent review. Your top looks better than the one in the magazine.

I was just looking at this pattern in the mag wondering how it would turn out. So thank you for taking the time to post the photos and the steps you took. It's wery helpful.

Thanks for the tips on the neckline - I was a bit worried it would be too low but your looks fine.

Sure glad that you put the details of the neckline on your pic site...Thanks. I like this top...the neckline looks somewhat low in the picture in the magazine did you adjust that at all?

Wow, that neckline treatment does look a little tricky, so thanks for all the pictures. This is a very attractive and different looking top.
