Great-looking top, glad the armholes could be fixed. New Looks often seem big in my experience too, especially in the shoulder and neckline area. RLL's suggestion about the flare out seems good to me -- I would guess the front might be too short relative to the back for it to be able to hang down vertically at the hem?

Cute outfit! Like the silhouette in the back photo - shapes nicely. Looks like you nailed the fix on the armholes. Winner!

Looks so nice on you, great shape/fit and the color is wonderful. The flare out at the front hem...I seem to recall reading once with jacket fitting that it meant it was too short at CF in chest add length in CF above bust (cut and spread pattern) tappering to nothing at side then true up the CF line , grainline and any darts. Don't know if this works for tops in general or just jackets.....but might be worth a try.

Ha! SO glad you fixed those "King Kong" armholes! You are a hoot. Love your new top. It looks so nice on you!

I really like your top--the v-neck shape is very graceful and the color is great.

What a cute summer outfit. The fixed-up armholes look great. Thanks for that link to the threads article on cropped pants.

I had to go look in my closet to see if I made the sleeveless version on this pattern, I guess not, I will stay away from that view. You totally reveal my getaway at the computer with your humor that makes me LOL, "two people could have held a conversation, while maintaining eye contact, looking from one side of me to the other through these openings" The way I see it Your top is pretty cute, but your wit won me over on this review. White pants on you? what gives....

You are cracking me up with your King Kong armholes! So glad you fixed that, cause your top turned out really cute. I think I have this pattern somewhere but have not sewn it. I now know what to look for while sewing it!!
