Your shirt looks great--nothing like a knit with a collar to dress it up.

Very nice top - I've eyed that one for a long time and just need to make it.

I realy like this top a lot, your color choice is great, and your sense of humor in the "conclusion" of your review is really really appreciated. lol I'm not familiar with Ottobre, but will be checking out their patterns tonight. Nice job!

The top is lovely. The link to the pattern just goes to the Ottobre site, can you provide a link to the actual pattern you used at all? I particularly like the colour you used, do you have Autumn colouring? I love to see the garments on the people they are made for, gives a really good idea of the fit - and is useful to see what the laterations you have mentioned do on the body.
