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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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!

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

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

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