I have made this top too and love it. Great work on getting it to fit you perfectly.

I have now made this twice, and granted I am a novice sewer, the neckline is giving me fits! I can't get it to lay flat - can you tell me what might help this? I love your detailed review! Thank you so much, Caryn

Beautiful top.

Love your t-shirt. I am having the same issue with the neck being too big on my size. I will see if your trick of a smaller size on the front will work. Thank you

This sounds like THE top pattern to have. You've done a wonderful job. Thanks for the review.

thanks all for the nice comment. Rhoda, my waist gives me fits, so always trying to camouflage it:) My hairdresser says I am low maintenance!! Not sure about the fBA.(unsure how to do that)I have a broad back and a 38B bra size. 14 on the front and 16 on the back seems to work.

A VERY good review and a very pretty top. I think you have my body (and hair ;-))! Since this has gathers on the side bust, I'm thinking a FBA could be eliminated??

Beautiful job. Thanks so much for all of your explanations and pics on your alterations - very helpful! I can see why you plan to sew this again - you have a great pattern here.

Excellent review! I will use your ideas when I sew my next knit top. I have a few not-quite-right muslins already. I love the rich color of your top. You look great!

What a perfect description of "how and why to make a muslin." You ended up with a great top, and a TNT pattern. Very nice.

You got a beautiful result, lovely fit! What a nice outcome for all the thought you put into your effort.
