LynnRowe - I am cool with blaming the fabric lol I'll make sure to try some rayon/lycra and see what happens!

Nice! I've been intimidated by this pattern (even though I bought it), and I think the print will look even more fabulous!

Gorgeous, well done! I blame your fabric for the back neck...cotton knits and I do not agree on what the proper binding behaviour is. Try a rayon/Lycra knit next time, and see if that cures the problem. Without lycra, knits have a habit of not recovering well when stretched, and in applying binding, one must stretch. The Lycra adds the recovery. Your top still looks terrific, and with the front vision, no one will be looking at the back neckline anyways. :)

Well done, the fit looks really good. Can't wait to see it in your orange print!
