That is such a nice looking top, Belinda! I am sorry that the fabric did not work out :-(. Are you planning to make this top again?

Lovely top! What a bummer about the fabric growing endlessly. Thanks for the great review.

Lovely fabric...I think I'd be wearing it anyway, well at least until the neckline became indecent!

Oh yes, I am familiar with the seduction of a piece of fabric. The top looks lovely; how sad that you find it unwearable.

That is too bad your fabric is uncooperative because it's so pretty. Looks like a fabulous top pattern, I will have to try StyleArc at some point.

Gorgeous top! Could you re-do the neckline, adding clear elastic?

Disappointing about the fabric, but great review. Style Arc just keeps coming up with winners -- I want them all! Karen

All of your wonderful reviews on Style Arc patterns make me really want to try this line of patterns. The fabric is sooo pretty. I hate that it didn't work out. Thanks so much for another very helpful review.

love your pleats!! Can you war it in the winter as an overtop? It is a beautiful fabric.

Oooh! That fabric would have sucked me in as well. Lovely top.

Well it looks great. Knits do strange things to me.

I'm happy to see that the pattern has cap sleeves too. It's a very nice top on the pattern, and your one looks nice too, even with the fabric issues. I'm more inclined to think about purchasing this top pattern now. So far I've had good experiences with Style Arc patterns. They seem to fit me a lot better than other patterns do :)

Shame about the fabric - it looks great in the pic! Thanks for the review.

Great looking top Belinda. You are doing really well with Style Arc. They obviously fit you well.

I really love this pattern and your cute fabric. How disappointing that it will not cooperate. It does make for pretty pictures though.

Awwww, bummer about the fabric, especially since it's so pretty! This pattern has been on my wish list, but your review just shot it to the top; it sounds wonderful!
