This is one of those tops that manages to look casual and elegant at the same time. Very nice and congrats on your first BWOF. Sewing half a dozen more of these beauties sounds like a great plan!

Renren nailed it - elegant, easy all at the same time. Great marrying of fabric and pattern.

Beautiful top and especially your addition of the hip band and neck band. And yes, several in white will be truly useful in any wardrobe.

Thanks for the review - I am hoping to use this as one of my tops in the wardrobe contest - very helpful :-)

You don't like how they tell you to add 1.5 cm even in a knit? Wait, my favorite is they tell you to add a sas to the neck on a bound edge, and then they have you cut it off. Regardless, this is great on you and I love the neckline and sleeve bands.
