I love the way this top skims the body. It's quite elegant and flattering. I hadn't given this pattern a second thought until I saw YOURS here today. :o) Beautiful!

Very cute top in a flattering color for you. Good idea to take out the elastic. It doesn't look oddly placed in the picture and I suspect it would ride up.

This looks effortless and carefree and matches your style perfectly. That mystery fabric is very flattering and pretty! Charmeuse would be gorgeous.

I like it. Don't feel bad about the elastic, it doesn't look that great on the model either and your top is very nice without it.

Great top! I will have to remember that one way to reduce garment flare is to add darts (duh moment).

So pretty on you. Great fabric choice. I bought this pattern about a week ago, so I am glad you mentioned the problems you encountered. This pattern was one of the very few I own that my 24-year-old daughter said she truly liked.

I like the way you changed the pattern to your taste. I think you should make another top, since it looks so nice on you. You have figured out all the bugs in the pattern.

Great top, great pattern. I saw a similar Rebecca Taylor top at Nordstom's and the price tag was $248!!! Yours outshines her's!!!

I enjoyed the Nine Yards link a lot. Seeing how you raised the neck on one was very helpful. You are amazing sewing so many things.

Very cute top on you! You definitely made this pattern work. The neckline looks great!

Lovely top and your darts make it far sleeker than NL's version.

This is a great top on you! I love the slight drape and the neckline.
