Nice top - good to know that I am not the only one with similar ideas for this years sewing

Pretty! Cutting on the bias was a good idea, it's very flattering.

Thanks for reviewing this - so simple and elegant. I'd passed over this because I don't wear dresses. I can never see the potential of patterns with simple modifications like shortening or changing the sleeves. I think the fabric is beautiful too.
