Love the print, nice fit. The neckline is flattering to you; not hussy at all!

I love this! You look great, and very un-hussy-like. I wondered if you'd raised the neckline since it looks perfect rather than too low, like WOF generally is. Great job!

Lovely top, the neckline looks fine, but I know it is different when you are wearing it.

I love this top! It has great style, and the print is fantastic! Also~I do have BWOF at home, and I haven't tried them yet. Thanks for the inspiration.

Diane, this top fits you perfectly! I like how you altered the back to remove "puddling"..I'm going to try that one! Love your fabric!
