Very cute! Definitely try the other two versions--the cowl is downright easy and has a beautiful drape.

Love it! I'm no fitting expert, but it does look like you can take it in at the waist. Please show us the update if you do.

your review is very helpful and i can't wait to see your "real" version, because this one looks very pretty. what a great color for you, too!

I think this latest version looks great on you and my only thought is that it's a bit too long. It's very elegant and sexy.

Why not? You can always baste it and try it on. That is what I do with knits. I am not a just serge it kind of sewer because I like the control of basting first. Then I use the basting as my sewing guide. It looks good regardless.

Much better! Now you have a great fitting top- congratulations!

I am glad that I could be of help here. Nothing is set in stone, or fabric as it maybe, and we all need to adjust the fit to suit ourselves. It looks better without the extra fabric.
