Lois, you need more of these tops! I too have wondered about the comfort of fabric bunched under the arms on a hot, humid day; glad to hear that it doesn't really do that.

Beautiful Lois :))) You have found another wonderful fabric and turned it into a masterpiece. The colours and style are perfect.

Maree - I love wearing it. It is comfortable. The bolero part attaches at the side seam and goes to the front. It does not bunch under the arm if you are wondering about that. I would give it a try with inexpensive fabric if it intrigues you. I love the look.

Great top - so stylish! That's too bad about some of the adjustment issues, but you definitely worked them out.

Your top looks wonderful. Do you mind me asking if it's comfortable to wear? All the fabric around the underarms has made me wary of buying this pattern. I realise a lot depends on the fabric though.
