You really got a good fit on this top . It looks really nice but I must say I find the amount of alterations to be a bit overwhelming. I have this pattern but may try a different one first.

Great color! It has been suggested to me that I put a dart in my T's to avoid the pull lines that I see you have as well. I've tried it, and while the drag lines disappeared, I personally prefer what I jokingly like to call the TATT look (tight across the t***y) in my T's and knit tops.

I love that green. Not everyone can wear that color. You and I are the lucky ones! All of your fitting adjustments truly paid off. Your top looks and fits you great. Successful sewing really means getting good fit. You did a great job.

Kateo, the fit on this looks fine. ?maybe you've worked on it so much you can't see how good it is. The good news is that now you've perfected the pattern you can make it over and over. Well done!

YAY!!!! I am so happy you didn't give up. It looks great. That's one of my fave colors, too, that mossy chartruese. And, that's a great pattern to have moved toward perfection...It'll be so quick from here on out to make and you can play with different neck and sleeve variations and you will never be tee-shirtless again! (The skirt in that pattern is priceless, too.)

What an impressive list of alterations you came up with. They worked because the fit looks great. Congratulations on great results.

Looks great! I have this but haven't made the scoop neck because I was worried it would dip too low...but yours looks terrific, so I may give it a try!

Definitely does not look homemade! Very impressive and I love this shade of green.
