Very nice top and helpful review. I wouldn't have taken a second look at this pattern until I read your review, but now I think I want it!

Hi Jen, I've been thinking about getting this one, your top looks great. I think I'll put it on my summer sewing list. I'm glad you made it, I must have missed it the first time. That is really cute fabric.

Cute top and very helpful review. I've had this pattern for awhile. Your review is encouraging me to pull it out.

It looks so much more flattering on you than Buttina! I remember when you wore this!!

Hey Neefer, I hope we get to see a photo. If not, you will have to wear this top to the next B.A.B.E.S. meeting...sounds like a great addition to your pattern canon.

I didn't think it sounded abrupt. And because of your comment I added the discussion of how it compares to Simplicity 5098, which adds a lot to this review, IMNSHO.

I just re-read my note & it sounds very abrubt (I guess that happens at 5:30 in the morning). So I should add: good info! And thanks for adding the comparison.

Sounds like a nice top, Neefer; thanks for the informative review; I got a good idea of this top even though there's no pic.

Picture? How does this top compare to the other mandarin tops you have made?

I never know whether to interface a collar since I hate tightness/stiffiness too close to my neck. Even though you forgot to do it, hope it is still wearable for you. Am anxious to see a picture of it sewn up - I like the pattern very much.
