I LOVE this shirt and it is absolutely one of my favorite. I think that is due to the fabric. I ordered what is called a T-shirt knit from Denver fabrics which is rayon and 3% Lycra. I checked today and they still have it in several colors on their website. Even though I've done little to no sewing since the new year, I may go order some more of this because it is super soft and has held up well so far.

Nancy, Your results are so nice (of course). Has the top worn well over time? You see, I've made two of these, and neither one has held up, mostly because of the fabrics I chose. They were too wimpy and continued to stretch and stretch after I sewed the tops (and on the second garment, I skipped the little pouch at the neckline). One fabric, which I bought at Mood, is pilling like crazy. I guess what I'm observing my experience is, use a knit with a LOT of snap back.

Yours looks much better then the one model on pattern envelope!

I like this top and the fact that you have two tops in this pattern. All the best with your CP.

WoW! Sharp looking top! Gorgeous color, great fit and great finish work!

The neckline drape is so nice! I guess it's the weight that gives it that little extra - brilliant touch! I've been looking for the right drapey-cowley sort of neckline for a knit top - I think you've found it for me, thanks!

Great top, the color is flattering.

This is a Sandra Betzina top, but there is no mesh or lining in the front

Is this one of the Betzina patterns where she incorporates a front "stay" or mesh liner inside the front? If so, I really like that idea! Love your top...I'm going to move it up in my very slow stack!

Pretty top and like the *weight* idea. Always learn something new. The top looks nice on you.

Love this top on you. Great color.

Great looking top and it fits you so well. I'm glad to hear it fits narrow shoulders. The draped neckline looks so pretty. I have been trying some cowl type necklines and I haven't found the one that works for me yet. I will have to give this a try. Thanks!

Really cute top and it looks pretty on you!

This is very cute on you. The coverstitch has a learning curve. Have you tried Debbie Cook's tutorials? That did it for me.

This top looks really good on you. Love the color too.

Looks great. You will get the coverstitch figured out, I read all the tips for it and finally realized each machine is just a little different. Mine needs just a tweak more tension than the suggestions, but I love it.

I have this pattern and haven't sewn it yet. Thanks so much for your review. That little pocket for the coin is such a neat detail to keep the neckline laying properly. Love the color and fit of your new top!

This top looks great on you! I bet the fabric feels good as well. Nice job!

Nice top, I love the 'weighted front' idea!

A smart top in a gorgeous fabric. The pocket idea is great.

good luck with the cs machine. Your top is a great match between fabric and pattern. I really like it :)
