Thanks so much for the kind words, everyone! @rivergum: Oooh, thanks for the tips. I'll definitely give them a try when I reprise this top next summer.

Beautiful! Thanks for the wonderful review ... makes me want to run out to the store! This is just the kind of pattern I've been looking for.

Gorgeous top! I have been making similar ones by taking a length of chiffon, putting in a hole for the neck and sewing a side seam close to the body, leaving the ends loose. This would save you some seams and you could just do a rolled hem around all the edges. The only tricky bit then is the neck binding. There is also no cutting out except for the neck. I just rip the fabric to get a straight edge.
