Deepika, could you explain what "adding a horizontal dart" in the back means? Did you just fold out an inch horizontally at the waist? I don't know too much about this (as you can tell). Thanks, Jody

Guys, I've gotten so much wear out of this top already. Whenever I am going out for dinner, this is the first top I reach for.

Thanks for the great review. I am just making this pattern and have been trying to decide if I need to lengthen it. I am pretty similar in height to you so thanks for the heads-up! Your top is very pretty!

Very Pretty! I'm looking forward to making this myself.

Same issue here with the darts, but it's a great little pattern all the same - and we all have those random 1 yard cuts of fabric hanging around. Your charmeuse is beautiful, and I love the top on you.

OK, so I have now downloaded my first pattern! I have been seeing lots of great versions of this pattern on PR. Yours looks fab and was the final inspiration I needed! Thanks for the review!

That's a cute top. I'm seen several reviews of this top now and like you, I hate taping up downloaded patters. I'm going to have to give it a try.

Nice! I made the same dart adjustments to mine.

Cute sorbetto and your first download! Now you are hooked Deepika. I love the print you chose. The darts were too long for me also.

Thanks! Colette's Sorbetto really caught my eye in the Best Patterns nominees, but its 25 pages- wow! You've convinced me to try a downloadable pattern.

Very cute! I can see what you say about the darts being a little long but they don't look too high to me. Lovely job.
