I like the second version best with the two different fabrics in the ruffle. The first one is nice, too, but the second is my favourite.

I prefer the first one with the single fabric ruffle, I think it would be even better if there was a thin binding of the main fabric at the neck.

Thank you @Brissie! I'm having such a hard time choosing but I'm leaning towards version 2 also.

@Claree I completely agree with you about the binding. I was disappointed when I realized that there wasn't fold over binding! The fabric on the design photo was busy and it wasnt obvious how the neck and arms were finished. It wasn't until I read the instructions did I have to go back and look at the design picture and I saw that there wasn't any. I plan to make this top again and I will cut my own bias stripes next time and finish the arms and neck that way.

I am in total agreement with #1 and the thin binding
