That top is so pretty on you. I'd never guess at the fit issues looking at the pic. I adore that pattern too, and nearly made it but for my fear the 38 would be too big!

Sharp looking top, Melissa! Great fabric and style on you! Your top and Vonne's look much more interesting than Burdie's!

This pattern is on my list. It looks wonderful on you. It would look great worn under a sweater for the fall.

You managed to get it to fit perfectly. You look fantastic in this style, and the fabric is gorgeous.

I have made this dress and like it more and more. I do like the sleeveless version as a top - I may have to try it - it looks great on you!

Ok, you're making me want a THIRD version if this dress. I haven't tried blouse-length yet! This looks fabulous on you...well worth working thru the glitches!

WOW !! Beautiful top, nice save...thanks for heads up on being so big. Love that CF style always on lookout for interesting top from Etcetera collection. This one goes on my long...long list too !!

Would not adding the seam allowances automatically grade it down perhaps? It's a very cute top on you--good idea to start with the top instead of the dress!
