Oooh....I have this pattern (& 34H girls!) & have been eyeing off the crop top. What a great idea to make it a proper top. It looks fabulous & the fit is perfect.

Thanks to all of you for the comments! I posted this review especially for the full-busted gals out there - there are ways to be comfortable and cool and not reveal everything - if that's your goal :)
