A cute and distinctive top. Very summery, too.

You look very attractive in that top - those are definitely your colors. I love the neckline and your necklace.

Fabulous. I hadn't noticed the top from this pattern...only the cardi. Thanks for the alert about the way it fits nicely for hourglass figures!

I hadn't thought to add the sleeves to the top, what a great idea. Thanks for the review, the top looks lovely.

It's beautiful! Thanks for this review -- For all of us making the cardi, it's nice to know the standard top is also a winner.

Great looking top, it fits you perfectly. The fabric print and necklace are wonderful on you!

Great top & print and I love the matching necklace - did you make it too? Now this pattern is on my radar. I wasn't interested in the cardi, but I love the wide neckband of this top.

Your top looks really pretty! I will have to try this one!

Fabulous top! I like the way you did your FBA...adds room at the top but doesn't increase the hip width. Love the fabric too.

Love how your top came out! I'm going to try adding sleeves and your way of doing an FBA on this top too. :)

You and the top and the necklace are fabulous together. You deserve the perfect score for this combination.

This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute (and the PERFECT necklace, to boot). I love that you've made the TOP from this pattern, which I think may tend to get overlooked by us all making a beeline for the cardi. This is just darling. :o)

Gorgeous. Thanks for the great review. Great tip for FBA and lowering the neckline. Hmmm, I think Simplicity is on sale this week.

Never thought of adding the sleeves and I LOVE this tank. To the store today!

Can't believe I missed this review - I just saw it referenced in a new review of the top. I think adding short sleeves as you did is a great idea and your top looks fantastic!
