I a always conscious of the 'targets' syndrome, but didn't see it until you mentioned it. Because there are so many circles on the top, I don't think it will be an issue.

There's a saying in Germany: "You don't see the forest because of all these trees". Means I agree with what QuiltSewSew said: There are too many of "those" to make you think of particular ones. :-)) Oh rivergum, I'm still laughing, the way you write is so delicious. Thank you for all the thoughts and hints when lengthenning the sleeves. The Tessuti top is one of my next targets and this will help. Yours looks very pretty, I'd say, don't worry about the circle-print.

So funny! I saw it once you described it, but this is a third vote for wearing the blasted thing. I think it's like those pictures where they ask if you see the old lady or the young woman, and once you see one it's really hard to switch==if you don't see them, you don't and once you do you're completely shafted! But on the topic of sewing, thank you so much, I've got this pattern and really wanted to lengthen the sleeves, you have saved me from having to figure it out myself and doing something totally stupid.

I don't think it's an issue at all. Even with you mentioning it, I can't really see it. It's a great looking top.

Not to worry. Even after you mentioned your concern, nothing became obvious. I think as QSSSS says, there are too many circles and some have thicker edges than othes which makes it look like there are lines separating the circles. Great tip on the sleeve lengthening..You are good!!

Random eyeballs, maybe, but not the other! You are just right on trend with the black and white theme.

I didn't think about it 'till you mentioned it. Another beautiful top. Wear it, by all means, and thanks so much for the info on making it long sleeved.

Wear it and boobs be damned. My first response when seeing your photo was "Where did she get such fun and interesting fabric?"

What a cool top! Wear it and enjoy.

I don't see targets, just lots of circles. I think your top looks great and you should wear it.

If these look like your boobs you are in big trouble. More like jenleeC's random eyeballs after a wild night. I love the fabric and the top.

I don't see it either. Just fun circles in a lovely print. I don't even see any eyes. But then again I am one of those people who could never see the picture in the middle of the Magic books that you had to stare into, go cross-eyed and then find the hidden whatever. I reckon there was no whatever - it was all a con. Just like the Emperor's new clothes. However you, m'dear are safe. (Perhaps stay away from boy's schools though to be sure.)

I don't see boobs in that design. It is possible to overanalyse sometimes - I know; I do it myself. It's a great top and I think you should not worry but enjoy wearing it.

I see martini olives if anything. It's a great top and the print is fun. Good job on succussfully lengthening the sleeves.

I love the top, and I did notice the fabric in that I love it, and think it is perfect for the top. I didn't notice the issue you have with it. I think you are looking way too close and need to step back. The photo makes the top look lovely.
