I like your view of this pattern better than the pattern picture.You have changed the neckline. I like the look

Nice wardrobe-building type pattern. And this top is fun with the non-staple type fabric.

This is very pretty, and I like the colors of the "mystery" fabric. Thanks for the facing tip!

I like the fact that even though it's loose-fitting, it isn't overly "blousy" at all. Looks terrific!

Very nice blouse on you! I really like the lines of this pattern and that you say you can adjust the degree of fit with the darts. Thanks for the tip on the upper facing, they goofed on that detail.

Boy, you've been on a 'top sewing binge' and all of them are wonderful. I relly like this one, too.
