Great Review, Diane, and a beautiful top. Lovely fabric choice, even if it is snaggy!

Thanks so much for the extra photos! It's like having my Mom standing over my shoulder and saying, now honey, don't get frustrated, you just do it lke this...(early memories from learning to sew!) BTW, in the winter, my hands get so dry they snag the interfacing. Your top looks great. Excellent review.

So far I have put off buying this pattern because so many have had difficulty with how the sleeves fit the bodice. Your description and extra pictures explained alot and I will now order the pattern. Thanks for such a detailed review. The top looks great.

charmaine, i've been one of the complainers, but so far i've made 5 of them, and i have fabric from gigi enroute to me which will turn into another funnelneck. the main thing is to line up those dots on the pattern pieces. truly it's a great pattern that sews up quickly and wears with style!

Diane, you have a very nice top. I like how you have 'dressed up' a simple garment pattern by using that fabric. Great job, as usual!
