I think your shirt and fabric look great. What is it that you don't like about it? I have this pattern too and need to try it out.

Thanks for the review. I've been eyeing this pattern and wondering whether it was a good one or not. Looks like a dependable one!

Thanks for your rating. It looks awesome! Glad you mentioned tapering down at the hip - I will remember that when I cut this out for myself. Cheers!

Were you able to sew the binding on the serger?

The fit looks just about perfect. Looking forward to the next one.

No FBA and you're a D cup? The style is very becoming on you. Guess I'll be ordering this pattern.

Hi Liane, the neck has a neckband rather than a binding. I did sew the band to the neckline with my serger then topstitched using my coverstitch machine. HTH

This is a very interesting style and you've done a lovely job of it. And I think your accessories bring out the best in this fabric. Nice!

Lovely top and great necklace too. I am glad that this pattern worked for you. I am predicting that this pattern is definitely going to be in our Best of 2008 next year!

Great top. No FBA is great too. I'm going to make this some time this year.

The fit is perfect! Such a beautiful top and I love the necklace too! You got me curious about the armhole since I'm in the middle of 'studying' that particular area at the moment:-) What is different about it?

Debbie Cook said...
I've been wondering when this review would show up. It looks great fit-wise and style-wise. Sorry you don't like the fabric but I know you have more. :wink:

You look just beautiful in this top! Shoot-- now another pattern I 'have' to buy... :) I hope mine can turn out so nice!

but I like that print on you--it looks sharp! Nice job.

Very nice! Great style, and your fabric is an excellent choice. Not so certain this would work w/o modification for me, since I'm an A cup, not a D cup!
