Thanks for posting a review of this top, all of them look fantastic on you! I just sewed it up and think it's super flattering. DD16 wants me to make one for her, now!

Noticed this pattern for the first time tonight, on a rack in Walmart, and I was pleased and surprised to find a review. Your versions are very encouraging - lovely! Thanks for taking the time to post the great pictures.

Thanks again. MNBarb, Yes it is, simplicity extracted versions B & C for Its So Easy Simplicity pattern. Before serging the neckline I baste stitched the overlay from shoulder to V-point. Then slowly serged along the neckline making sure to place my finger behind the presser feet as I serged, removing my finger to release bunched fabric, repeating the process as I continue, especially being that I didn't stabilize the neckline. Thereafter,snip right at the V-point making sure not to snip past the left/right straight serger threads. Fold the serged edge to the inside and slowly final stitch along neckline using the same technique by placing finger by the presser feet.It ensures neckline does not stretch out. I love this technique, which I came across while web surfing and sadly don't recall the blog to credit for a great technique.

Funny, this is the same pattern as Simplicity 2181. This is such a flattering design with its waist definition. You look terrific in all of your versions! I didn't like the facings either but how did you turn over the V of the neckline without having it get bunchy!

Thank you for the beautiful compliments. RadarRadiance, I posted on my blog how I teaked the blouse and how I attached it to the skirt. Let me know if you have any additional questions and thanks.
