It's beautiful. The knit has a nice print on it for this style.

Well, your top looks great. I would never have given that pattern a second glance.

If only I had a longer neck and no "power surges". This is such an attractive top.

Beautiful, definitely a wearable muslin. The pattern as such style.

Kay Y, yes this is a close fitting top, so unless you used *very* stretchy fabric I don't think you could get away without the zip as the neckline and crossover is so high, but I think you could get away with a shorter zip than the 22" the pattern asks for. Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

Beautiful! Thanks for pointing this top view out...I couldn't get past the jacket so hadn't noticed. This is a lovely top in beautiful-looking fabric.

A beautiful, stylish top!

Despite the "nasty nylon knit" this looks marvellous. I, like Irina, never noticed this beautiful top which looks like it would be terrific under a jacket. Is it very close fitting, and do you think one could get away without the zipper?

Absolutely stunning top. You did an excellent job. Now I want one too.

Whenever I look at that pattern in the catalog, I only "see" the jacket. Now I can tell that the top is the real standout in the envelope. Yours is lovely. Some newer Vogue patterns have more sizes in an envelope, but apparently not this one.

I love your fabric and the style is perfect. I'm going to have to hunt down the right fabric and get this pattern.

Your top looks much better than Vogue's photo. Now, I want this pattern.
