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?)

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

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.
