Love your fix for the too long sleeve. You got a terrific fit in the back.

REALLY cute - love the style - very flattering - I should think this style would flatter most figure types. :) Nice color too!

Interesting pattern and your work is evident in the fit. I love your fix for the sleeves. This is a cute top and I hope you make another.

Great save on the sleeves. I'm going to file this in my sewing memory. I've had that problem with the sides pulling in but it isn't very noticeable on your top. Wear it and enjoy. It's fun to have another crossover top that doesn't look like all the others.

It's a nice wearable top, even if it isn't perfect, and your efforts to make it work are impressive, as usual. I hope you enjoy wearing it.

Too bad about the pulling at the side seams. I don't know that it's terribly noticeable. I'm wish I knew the answer to the gape-y wrap neckline! However, I think it looks really good. Definitely not a fail.

It's a pretty cute top regardless of the issues you had. These funky tops can be so hard to alter (ask me how I know). I bet if you move on and make it again out of stretchier fabric it will be up to your standards. Very cute, however, as is.

great save. It's still very wearable and is flattering. I think it's a pattern worth saving.

Your sweater looks good. I love this pattern. I've made it a couple of times, trying different sizes in rayon jersey with good recovery, but mine don't hang right either. I think the best result would be with a fairly beefy jersey, worn with negative ease. anything looser and you get distortion. :( Anyway, I'd be pleased if mine looked as good as yours!

I like this - you certainly did a lot to make it work well for you - hope you will wear it a lot and make another
