Hi Karen - I do use iron-on hemming tape (fusible on both sides) but the one made by the Vilene people. I still sew the hem in place, but it doesn't stretch out when I've already fused it into place. Good luck!

Love the stripes! I'm about to make this. Can you provide a link to the stabilizing tape you use for the hems? I've looked at JoAnns and all the hem tape seems to say "DON'T SEW" just iron on. Is there another product I can use? Thanks!

Wonderful top, thank you for the tip about removing the front less thing to deal with on a FBA. Thank you!

Love this top and you did a great job with it. I agree about the rather low neckline and since I'm a lot older than you (cleavage is not necessarily a pretty thing on women after 60) I use a white dickey pinned to my bra if I am going to be moving around quite a bit. I also made a self fabric dickey so it doesn't even look like a dickey. Thanks for your review.
