This turned out really well- I love the color, and the fit looks great from here. But a little tweaking sounds like it should perfect it. Thanks for the review-this is a cute pattern.

This turned out very nice. I have this pattern and fabric to make but it still sits in my stash :-) You may have inspired me to dig it out though. Love that shade of green too!

This top looks great on you. Good good on the FBA, and good luck on the shoulder adjustment and the next one!

Your top is lovely. I like the fabric and the sleeve adjustment looks good.

Your top is adorable! Why didn't I pick up this pattern when it was on sale?!? I think you're right about needing a bit of a square shoulder adjustment on version #2 (and I do think there should be version #2 b/c that's a super cute style on you!).

What a GREAT summer top! The color is fantistic and you achieved a good fit. Enjoy wearing it with pride!

Cute style! It looks good on you. Can't tell that it's eyelet from the pic. You were lucky to find eyelet in that wonderful color!

You got a really good fit in the bust. A very nice look on you and the green color is so fresh and summery looking.

You did a great job with this. I like what you did with the sleeves, and are those covered buttons? Love the color.

Gorgeous colour and great top. I have this pattern too but not made it yet - so will follow your link on FBA cos I will need to do that too. I like the sleeve version you have used. Thanks for the review.

great top. glad you fixed the picture!! this is so cute. you fit it very well I think. yes, maybe just barely some wrinkles coming from the neck area, perhaps broad shoulders as well.. ?
