My oh my! You are lookin' so Pat Benatar (the one I remember nearly thirty years ago) nowadays! Nice, spiffy top on you with your modifications!

Ohhhhhh, I love love love the blue fabric. Where did you get it? Your alterations have made the blouse a real winner for you.

The 2nd top looks wonderful and I appreciate the initial review. I have yet to sew a Jalie pattern and this is the only one I own. I'll be sure to reread your review. Thanks for being so detailed.

The blue top looks absolutely terrific. The colour suits you beautifully and the fit is great. I have that rounded upper back thing going on too, much more pronounced than yours. Thanks for the info on adjusting this pattern to take care of it.

I love this favorite. The neckline is very flattering although I did remove some fabric from the back as I thought it was a bit high. Like you, I saw no need for a 3 piece back so I cut on the fold. Is Jalie clever or what as to how they achieve the front look? Thanks for the review..I think you'll love this as you adjust to your own personal style!

I love this fabric on you and think the top looks great. If you figure out the back neck issue, please post it. Every time I see a review of this top, I think, "OK, that one's up next." I will be referring to this review when it does make it to the top of the list.

It's a fabulous top and I love the fabric. If you tweak it a little, the next one will be even better.

I love this top. You look great in it. I may have to buy this pattern. I agree that there's too much fabric at the back neck, but otherwise I think it fits you perfectly. As for the "linebacker shoulders," I just don't see it. You just have square shoulders IMHO. Great review. Like all the extra pictures.

I've got this one and haven't sewn it up yet. Can't wait to see how this evolves.
