Great top Lyndle and as you say - good for using a small amount of loud fabric.

LOVE your top and this pattern! Besides being perfect for a small splash of wild print, it's also perfect for a small splash of expensive fabric, too. Looks fabulous on you!

I love this top on you! Thanks so much for the review; I'd seen this pattern on others and wondered if it would fit my plus-sized body! It looks great on you; can't wait to try it also! thanks again.

What a great idea to use this pattern as a way of showing off bold fabrics without feeling too much like a walking ornament! Looks great on you.

Looks lovely! The grey wool knit drapes beautifully too. Thanks for the review!

Thank you for all the nice comments. You can't tell so much from the photos but compared to most of my other clothes this is very flattering to the plus size body. It might be worth using a double layer of your drapey knit on the back as a fine knit tends to stick to the curves. I'll definitely sew the normal neckline next time and perhaps add a little longer drape to the cowl.

Really beautiful fabric and drape. Looks like a very flattering, versatile top.

Oh I love the idea merino wool in a lovely drapey top. Good fabric is half the battle - it looks great on you!
