I love this top. For my top, I just stitched it close about 1" above the twist. I took a few hand stitches from the back and you can't tell it's not supposed to be that way.

You will be very stylish with a cami under this. You made a beautiful top.

Love the color of your top!

I like your top and the color is wonderful. It would look great on you. If you look at my KS twist pattern review, I show how to raise the neckline.

Thanks Kay. I understand this in principle, but the pattern piece for the front of the blouse is a very unusual shape, and it will take some figuring to decide where the neckline is located. I will give it a shot though.

It looks like a gorgeous top - the fabric is beautiful and you did a great job.

Your fabric is really beautiful! I have been afraid of this style because of the low-cut neckline as well. The shirt looks great--great job!

Beautiful top!

Redraw neckline. Find lowest point you want. Then redraw up to shoulder. Lap there at lowest point.

Beautiful fabric. I haven't made this style either because the neck looks so low. I like your idea of a cami under it...good idea.

This looks lovely, I love the fabric! Maybe other reviews of this top have suggestions for the neckline?

A lovely top!
