I've made a version of this and I loved reading how your experience paralleled mine in figuring it out. I eventually got it too, but my knit was just a bit too heavy so the twist is somewhat bulky (though I do wear it). I'll try another version with lighter weights.

Wow, what a gorgeous top. Your tweaking worked out great.

Interesting particualrly on the sizing. I measure slightly bigger than the 14, and have got out a test to sew up later today. Will have to see how it works, as it sounds like it will be too large. Thank you for sharing.

It looks great on you. I predict that this is going to be a major hit for Hot Patterns! It is definitely a high fashion piece.

What a wonderful top...the style and color look great on you. Between you and Michelle here is proof that this style looks great on all figure types!

Gorgeous! I'm so glad to see that someone else loved this pattern, too. I wore my cowl version yesterday and am wearing the wrap-over version today. I've done the wrap-over version twice now, and it was MUCH easier to do the second time.

Beautiful top. Love the color on you. And thanks for the very helpful review. I'm eager to make this too but I'm still waiting on delivery even though I ordered the first day the patterns were debuted.
