Very cute. Just curious- did you also find that there was no reference in the directions to the center front seam?

The colors are a little out there, but hey, it's just the beginning, and thanks! Jstarr - I went back and read the instructions - it seems they call the center front seam the "middle section" of the collar. You would sew on the wedges, then cross the front straps as in the picture, next sew the center front seam up to the first notch. It would be nice if they provided a more detailed picture, the actual sewing is easy as all the notches line up exactly. I'm doing my part to bring back the 70's...

Really cute top and great fit! I agree with Jstarr4250...I believe they missed the reference to the center front seam. I thought like you, they were calling it the "middle edge" but what they were referencing was the the middle edge of the collar. Either way, this top is easy once you figure that part out. I just made a muslin of this top and have not posted it yet. Beautiful work!

I have this pattern too., but haven't made it yet. Would love to see the front. Your dyeing looks just terrific.

Love your tie dye! It looks like a fun pattern, and it looks great on you. Thanks for the review.

I added the full front view pic and links to more details about the dye stuff if you are interested. Next time I make this top, I'll take pictures of how it goes together if the next person who reviews this hasn't already done that (that's a big hint!)
