Annette, I love what you've done with this! I think the centre front slit opening looks really stylish. The use of the stripes on the bias cut front gives a very flattering look. You're looking good!

I agree, great top! It looks great on the bias like this. I'd wear it to work too-- with pride!

Fantastic! Really great top, and looks so good on you! Making the bodice on the bias makes it so much more interesting, and - I AGREE with you about RTW knits - thanks for sharing!

What an interesting top! The bias cut is very becoming, and I bet it would be terrifici in say, a woven silk or linen, too.

Wow! You can make a dozen of these for fit, but it'll be hard to match those diagonal stripes :-). Totally agree about the efficiency of making your own vs crappy RTW.

I love the bias cut, diagonal stripes. T-shirts usually have those stripes on the horizontal and the diagonal ones are an interesting look.

I agree on this being the TNT for you. Just vary the print or add embroidery & it will be totally different!

You definitely should make more of these tops. What a fantastic fit you achieved. Love it in the stripe, also, with the bias cut.
