Nice top. I love this pattern and always use the tucks. They help shape the top & look adorable. I've made the short sleeve but I like the 3/4 or long sleeve, it seems more graceful, on me anyway.

Beautiful top, the neckline is a great improvement.

Classy top, and I love the scooped version! Beautiful fabric too!!!

Thanks for all of your comments. I did not do the tucks on this one since I felt they would be lost in the pattern. If I make it with a solid or something that will show them, I'd like to do the tucks.

Good job on the neckline. Much more flattering

Nancy, your good design sense was right, the lower neckline is more flattering. I love your beautiful fabric as well.

I do like your revised neckline much better. Did you do the version with the tucks at the bottom? I can't tell from the picture.

I like the lowered neckline. The former almost appears to be choking you. Well done!

A very nice top. I too like the scooped out neckline better on you.

The top looks nice on you, Nancy, and the scooped out neckline also appears more comfortable. I sort of wonder, though, why Loes favors this one so strongly. Having made it once, I found it slightly uncomfortable for me, weirdly more snug in various places, looser in others, compared to my TNT, her cowl top, which fits me out of the box and is just overall more flattering.
