This is beautiful. I am happy to read your review. I didn't like the pattern very much after I bought it but I'm happy to see that it sews up so nicely. Your top looks much better than the model with her poor posture. Also love your fabric. Is anyone else sick of the slouchy posture on models and people today, or is it just me.

Yes- yours DEFINITELY looks better than the pattern envelope. You made some really great changes. Love these bright colors on you.

Great review!! This top is so pretty and flattering. I really am liking the peplum shape these days.

Very pretty on you Barb, and I agree-this is way cuter than the pattern photo. Thanks for the order of construction and the neckline finish technique. Great top!!

Yours is cuter than the envelope. Thanks for the review; this pattern and a piece of watermelon rayon is on the top of my stack.

I love the idea of eliminating the zipper. What did you do instead?

I have some nice stretch jersey that I want to use on this, but nobody wants a zip with jersey! So you have given me hope that the zip can be eliminated--it looks like you have only increased the neck by just a little bit to compensate.
