Your fabric is perfect for this pattern, and top looks great - very "Chico's" .

Thanks for the sleeve cap explanation. I have a similar body type those drag lines have always bugged me!

Lovely fabric. Keep thinking about trying this pattern but have others similar style.

Mmm, nice top! The contrast binding looks very smart.

Liane, the fabric was only about 6 weeks old - EOS sells out fast! The same print in a different color is currently on Waechter's Silk Shop website. Elona - I actually had attached a copy of the Norm Thompson top to this pattern. The crossover turned out to be lower tho on the pattern. Diane E - I have broad straight shoulders and a flat back. Many casual knit tee patterns have a flatter sleeve to fit a slightly extended shoulder - on me the extended shoulder is many times my actual shoulder line and I get drag lines on the sleeves. On knits I can just raise the cap without having to change the armhole. On wovens I often have to change the armhole also. I don't think extended or drop sleeves look as well on me altho they are easier to sew.

Very pretty top, I like your black binding. That really sets off the top.

Your top turned out beautifully. I am drooling over the fabric.

Stunning tee! The black binding is a wonderful touch. Norm Thompson is using a pattern that looks very much like Loes'. http://www.normthompson.com/jump.jsp?itemID=9015&itemType=PRODUCT&RS=1&keyword=coral rose and http://www.normthompson.com/jump.jsp?itemID=6543&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C4%2C110%2C121&iProductID=6543

What a beautiful top. The black binding really gives it an elegant finish. Help me understand the purpose behind the higher sleeve cap - how does it affect fit?

I love your fabric too and your top looks wonderful.

Wow! Your knit cross-over top is gorgeous. The fabric you selected for the top is beautiful. I think the black contrast binding...adds a nice finish to the top. Give the Jalie cross-over top a try. I'd like to see your thoughts on both.

I love that fabric. I assuming that it is not a recent purchase. I have made both this top and the Jalie cross over top and prefer the Jalie. Very cute top.
