Nice job! I was skeptical about those flounces too, I think I will definitely leave them off.

Thanks for the review of these tops. My copy just arrived last week and I was thinking of making this top. I like the flounces but wonder if they would be in the way... maybe on a 3/4 length sleeve...?

Another lovely shirt. Ddi you make any fit alterations? This one fits really well, too.

@brissie71: actually no, I didn't make any fit alterations. Ottobre tops usually fit me pretty well right out of the box. However when I look at the picture, I see that the seam where the sleeves attach to the shoulder is pretty low on my arm (and I thought I had broad shoulders!) So I might remove a few cm from the lenght of the shoulder seam next time.

Love those sleeve flounces. What a great wardrobe piece.
