Lori, thank you for updating this review. I think your new top looks wonderful on you! I love the fabric and the review is full of great information.

This review really helps me out as I am planning to make this top this weekend. (Especially the comment about the elastic in the back wanting to be lower than the elastic in the back. I seem to generally have that problem --- great to have been forewarned!)

Thanks for the informative review. (I wouldn't be able to wear that color either. Perhaps with a green cami underneath?)

That is an incredibly beautiful top and easy too, Bonus! The fabric is ethereal, I bet you'll look great in this.

Beautiful top. I love the fabric you chose. I couldn't even tell it was made from a knit. Lovely.

I think you chose the perfect fabric for this pattern. It drapes beautifully. Thank you for the tips for sewing with knits!

Very pretty top! I think I missed this pattern at the Simplicity sale the other week.

Wow, hoe pretty! Sorry you don't like the color-- try a fuscia cami underneath. I have this great Anna Sui silk that would look so good made into this!

Great top, fabric and review. I'd be interested to know what causes the front to ride up - does anyone have any ideas?

I love your idea for using the lengthwise grain for the neck. I will definitely use this concept. Your top looks so professionally done. You did a great job.
