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.

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

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.

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.

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.
