Very pretty top and it looks great on you! The FBA info is also very helpful.

You look great in your new shirt. I'm glad you gave this pattern a try. I'm a C cup and didn't do the fba, didn't need to. In fact, when I made it in onionskin, it turned out a bit large in the bust. Tamtay, funny that you needed a FBA on this view but not on the other since the finished bust measurements are larger for this view. Mini, you have to try this one. I bet you'll love it.

Isn't this a wonderful pattern? I like the leopard print too. Your comments on the shirring will be helpful, as I haven't made that version yet.

Looks great, Steffie; very nice shirt. I just finished (but haven't yet reviewed) the same shirred version of this pattern and sure enough--it's tight across the bazooms. I didn't need an fba on the scoop neck version, but the shirred version's a different story. You look wonderful in yours.

Mary T - Several others have made this top but did not make a bust adjustment. I probably didn't have to make it, but since I did, the shirring falls across my bust where I want it - not up higher on my chest as happens with the RTW tops of similar design. I am very happy with the fit.

Love your top, and thanks for this review. I think it's absurd though, to have to do a BCA on a plus sized pattern. I know there are many B cup plus sized women out there, but I bet most of us fall into at least a C cup!

You certainly made this into a fun top. I have to try that shirring one of these days.

Very nice. The design is very flattering on you, and I love the leopard print.

Great fit! It looks much better on you than on the model.
