I love this pattern too - so quick to make. I like your print. How did you finish the armholes? Looks like you topstitched - how did you stabilize? I tried using bias fusible tape from Lila Messenger which worked well.

Great review! I love the details about the armscye finish. Looks like you got a great fit! I can see why this pattern would be so popular with the PR crowd.

Very nice top, and thank you for the armscye info as I struggle with the turn and stitch method and wasn't sure how to make it look clean and neat. Thanks so much, Terri

Another winner, Kay. A question on sizing? It fits you beautifully and I was wondering how you found the sizing of Jalie patterns. Never tried one myself, this might be the one to start with! Thanks!

I love this, it looks so beautiful in the fun print. Question abou the armscye treatment, it sounds like you made kind of a binding, was it a straight strip, or did you cut it to follow the curve of the seam?

That does it. I have to start buying Jalie patterns. Your review will come in handy. Your top is terrific.

Nice work, Kay, and this top looks good on you. I'm also constantly in search of a good top with V-shaped neckline to wear under jackets. I like your endorsement of this pattern as one that would be suitable.
