Great job! I'm working on the same top myself. I wondered what it would look like done in a knit, now I know!

Linda - I made the sleeves as directed with the usual 5/8 inch seam allowance. And I can't see why you wouldn't be able to use a side zipper, frankly... But yeah, lengthening it to a dress is a great idea, I can't wait to see yours!

I love your top, you did a great job...now for a couple of questions...I was worried about the sleeves...yours look so much better than the pictures on the modes...did you make yours a little narrower by taking a bigger side seam on the sleeve portion? I was thinking about lengthening the top for a dress would that work with the way the pleats are in the front...I was thinking of a fairly straight skirt. I was thinking of sewing in a "dickie" I guess that would be a triangle because I know it would be too low and I had a dress once that had one of them that buttoned in. I was thinking of putting an invisible zipper on the side of a woven dress would that work? If I have you answer enough of my questions...my muslin will be wearable!!! Thanks for your great review.

It's adorable. That's weird how low the neckline is.
