Experience and playing with a pattern like you did, results in a fantastic top.Thanks for sharing.

This is a beautiful top with an interesting and original fit. The results of this top are what sewing is all about, coming up with something one of a kind that fits well. I like the way the arms of this blouse are done and the fitted look with the soft drapey cowl. Gives a soft elegant look but retains the feminine shape of the chest area.

Fantastic job! I have a DVF top with a similar drape front but it is practically unwearable because bras always show at the dart/pleat. Your version is much nicer than Diane's!!!

Your process sounds like so much fun. The top is original and lovely. I can't wait to see the silk one. Please be sure to post an update!

This cowl neck top is very pretty, and so is the pale yellow shade of your fabric! Thanks for this great review!

What a great looking top! You are becoming PMB savvy. Really very creative and I can't wait to see your next version.

Pleased? I'd be proud as punch had I drafted this gorgeous and challenging top. Just purchased this software and am a long way from what you have accomplished here.

I definitely applaud using the PMB software for this type of project. Even though it takes lots of extra time the results are great. I'll be staying tuned!

Kay Y, great trial! I love to read other PR members' experiments on self-drafting. Look forward to seeing your silk jersey version!

Your new silk jersey top is gorgeous. The neckline drape is perfect.

Karla Kizer said...
What a great top. It fits beautifully and the drape is concentrated exactly where it will show when worn with a jacket. I printed out your review and the pattern front you linked to. I hope you consider imitation to be the best form of flattery.

What a timely review for me as I have just completed the HotPatterns Renaissance top a few reviews below. Your controlled cowl/drape neck is a much more flattering. Would you know of a commercial pattern that would approximate your original design?

That's a cool top. I'm going to try it out using my TNT t-shirt pattern. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! The neckline is fabulous! I missed this review the first time around and am really sorry I did. You did a great job on the neckline -- I love the drape -- so unique. Thank you for sharing!
