Shona, your top looks very good, and the color is beautiful. I bought this pattern for the jacket but haven't done anything with it yet.

I agree; great review with a very pretty top. Thanks.

Great review, lovely picture. This sounds like a very nice pattern with good features (I like that they even provide a pattern piece for the bias strip, rather than say use purchased bias tape).

Wow! What great hints. If I try this one, I will be sure to print them out before I start.

Thanks for the review, Shona! You've given me some good things to keep in mind when I make the top, and reminded me that I cut the 'smallest' neckline and used a 3/8" seam allowance there to kind of help keep the dress from feeling like it was falling off my shoulders...I need to go make a note of that on my review!

It does sound like a 'fiddly' top pattern, but glad you got such good results. I'm looking forward to seeing your picture.
