Hi, It's a great top, isn't it? I'm part way through; I've just done a calico trial (muslin in US-speak, I think) and liek you, am glad I did. However, I have no intention of wearing it as a sleeveless top. I think it would look greta with a close fitting long sleeved black t-shirt underneath ... maybe that would be a good way for you to get more use out of that gaping underarm? cheers

Thanks so much for the review! I made a muslin tonight and was SO glad I did. Your top looks great! I think I will definitely add the FBA. I was getting a wannabe dart under the arm too. :)

Nice job! These tops with yokes are back in style and they are so cute!

*blush* all I can say is thank you all so much! j222b: I think it would be very simple to put the buttons in front! Great idea. I did make the tie a tad wider but I forgot to put that in the review. I also made it longer! So if any of you are "plus sized" like me and going to make this top be sure to add some length to the ties so you have enough.

I love your top - you look wonderful in it!!

So CHEERFUL and PRETTY, I love it! That yoke makes it extra special, too. Looks fantastic on you! My only complaint is, would you mind moving out of the way so I can see your apple green walls, artwork and taupe couch, because I love those too!

Nice top & fabric on you-AND I LOVE the back interest with the nice buttons. Think of substituting the back yoke with buttons as a front yoke with buttons for more front interest... I would have the belt tie at the back...maybe a slightly wider belt?

Really cute! The top looks fabulous on you! I just bought this pattern and after reading your review and seeing your picture I am excited to make it!

Ok, can I just say how cute you look in this? I am so making this now. Thanks for your review. Love the fabric too.

Skillful alterations have perfected your fit of this light, breezy tunic top which flatters your figure mightily. I think you have lovely arms that are perfect for the cap extension/sleeve. Make many more! -Lily

Great job! You are so stylin' into spring!

I love how it came out. Too cute! I like that yours is larger than the one on the pattern it's more realistic. The girl on the pattern is probably a size 2. I will buy.

Wow! Thanks everyone! sewfrequent: yes, I think you could sew this in just about any light to mid-weight fabric, knits included. It is fully lined and I think that creates a really nice drape. I think it would turn out really lovely in a knit. Be sure to show us all!!! Oh, and there is no interfacing either. Yay! All I can say is: Go for it Girlfriend! It's a great place to start. OP Gal: I think I'm friggin' addicted to her fabrics. Seriously. I L.O.V.E. them all!

Very cute! I have this pattern and have been nervous to try it since I'm a beginner! Your review is great though...gets me motivated :)

Oh you really did a nice job! I am going to get that pattern soon. Do you think it would sew up well in a stable knit?
