Great tops! I really like the idea of using stretch lace on a sporty looking top. Thanks for all the fit info. Sounds like a forward shoulder adjustment might be included. I wonder if the odd sleeve shape was an attempt to allow for large biceps that ended up too far down somehow.

Very creative interpretation, using the lace - thanks for the terrific idea !

Really nice tops, and I love the details you have added to make them special. Good review with lots of important info re:drafting and fit.

Very helpful review, and when I read about the forward shoulder adj., I immediately thought there had been one added by the pattern designer/drafter. Guess it overshot its mark. Very nice tops and thanks for showcasing another use for lace fabric.

Good looking pair of tops. I particually like the black one - I've not thought of using lace like that.
