Great top, I'm very happy with your review. I'd like to make this top, and as I have a D-cup, I now know for sure that the pattern needs changing and your review clearly states how.

Beautiful! I love the modesty panel --what a great idea, it looks like part of the original design. I have had the same short bust problem with other WOF tops, even sewn in knits, so I am glad you brought that up for us to watch out for.

Thanks, all. I should mention the 'modesty panel' is just a piece of the fabric folded over, and in the shape of a triangle. Since the contrasting bands are top stitched, I used that to sew the panel on either side.

Great, funny review. I looked at this and wondered how the 36 DD girls would fit and passed it by.

How wonderful your top looks, those invisible zippers are the pits when it comes to matching...but when I made a plaid dress I used the instructions on the sewing divas blog site and then before I sewed in the second side of the zipper I zipped it up and pinned the plaids to they matched in a few places and then took my disappearing marker and made marks on the zipper tape continuing onto the fabric and when I sewed the second side I made sure they lined up...It worked maybe just beginners luck...first time I had tried it that way. Every time I see a reveiw I this top, I think they look so much better than the they do on the models in the magazine. You did a great job.
