Gorgeous top! I'm thinking of sewing it so thanks for the helpful review.

Thanks for the good review ~ I will be purchasing this pattern now. I think the princess look opens up the versatility of this pattern allowing it to be worn with a dressy pair of slacks or skirt rather than casually as I think the Jalie V neck does . Don't get me wrong I LOVE Jalie patterns but some of the CJ patterns offer me more dress clothing which is what I happen to need at the moment. Just got back into sewing after taking a 10 yr break and this is the reason why. Dont want to spend tons of money on dresses ! ( we have lots of weddings to go to and I dont want to spend a fortune on my clothing!) I very much appreciate all your reviews and LOVE this top that you made!

This is an elegant, classy V-neck, Nancy!!! Your patience to obtain perfect seams always amazes me. If I was buying patterns, this would be the one I would go for! Thanks for sharing your techniques and sources--as always very thorough--AND tempting!! Carla

Very pretty top, the fabric is beautiful. I love red! Great detail in your review, nice job.

What a great looking V-neck. It is perfectly constructed. The quality of your execution makes this top look quite expensive.

Wow! Fabulous top! I've already put this pattern on my wish list as I really like the Cross my heart offered! What a pattern.

I can see why you were anxious to get your hands on this pattern - it's really lovely looking!

Nancy, I agree with all of the wonderful compliments on your top - It really is a keeper! Those muslins certainly paid off in a beautifully constructed and fitting top. I also appreciate the information you provided on how this pattern compares to the Jalie 2682 V-neck, and on how you approached fitting and construction. Love the addition of coverstitching!

Very informative review. Thank you for the extra detail and links. I'm almost tempted to try knits again (smile). Beautiful, beautiful garment!

Your top looks very lovely. You did a beautiful job of sewing it! Pretty color, too!

What a beautiful top! The coverstitching is fantastic looking, and the color is so fresh and vibrant. I love Jalie #2682~so your reference to this being similar has sold me. I'm ordering it now!

Beautiful top! I love the lines and the coverstitch details and it is perfect in red!

I also love the coverstitch detail. Great hint about the steam-a-seam to hold the hem in place. Beautiful top in a rich color.

Very, very nice. :) Thanks for the reminder about Christine Jonson patterns. She definitely has some nice things.

What's not to love about this top? It looks like it has the changes I need for the Jalie w/o the effort!
