It doesn't look like there is any gaping problem! It looks great. Cute top, fun fabric.

Love this top, you did a beautiful job. I agree, maybe put a ribbon behind the loops as a placket.

Love the tunic! And good to see you sewing again. This an example of perfect fabric to pattern matching. AWESOME!

Lovely top, and your suggestion about the loops is a good one. Maybe a zip would also work.

Besides the underflap for the loop closures, add clear, plastic snaps. That's what I do and I don't get the gap. A little extra work but it's such a nice looking blouse!

Congrats Jen on your FIRST BWOF!! It looks great and I love what you say about the directions. It now confuses me when I read others. Too much information! Love the print.

OOOH I love tis - what a gorgeous outfit - please put your reservations side and go out in this often i is there any way you can add a band under the button area to prevent any tummy peaks

It is too nice to not wear because you are uncomfortable about gaposis. I agree with the others to add an under flap.

This looks so cute on you! I agree with val from oz, you could make an under flap to put under the loops so as not to worry about the front gaping. That way you could enjoy your pretty top more.

Thanks for the review - this pattern is in my line-up and I'm glad to know about the front closure issue. Your version looks great!

Beautiful top Pyrose. Usually patterns for a loop and button closure include include a placket that goes under the closure from the button side. If you have a scrap left over you could add one and have a worry free top.
