Sue I really like your top and the embellishments. It's amazing what a little extra can do to a top. It's also interesting that you 'made it right out of the envelope' and it worked. That's what I plan to do too. A few of the other reviewers have raised the neckline saying it's too low cut but I think that alters the look entirely and then isn't as flattering over the bust. It doesn't look too low at all and is really lovely on you. (I know this is personal taste though.) The colour really suits you too.

thank you for this review. The embellishment really makes this top special. Beautiful color on you. Perfect fit, too.

Gorgeous top QSSS, lovely colour and beautiful embellishments. I think you provided clear directions on how you did the embellishments too :) Bet you'll have fun making more of these very soon!

How nice to sew an embellishment that doesn't tale an expensive machine, just a good eye. It's wonderful and so perfect for the top.

I love how you have embellished your top. That is gorgeous. I'm wearing one of the four Sunshine Tops I have made today. It's a great pattern!

Absolutely fabulous. You are very clever, and this would have been time consuming, so you must also have patience.
