This top looks very cute, and I also like how zeoplum adjusted for a pear shape body (like mine, ). I haven't sewed clothing for quite a few years, so I'm needing all the tips that I can get.

I think I have sewn this but mine did not look as good as yours. I will need to try more prints and less solids in my wardrobe. Thanks for this review

For some reason, I never think of making myself Christmas shirts. Yours is great; I love that fabric print.

Very cute. I also use the book FFRP quite a bit to help me with alterations.

Very nice. I love square necklines but don't think that they flatter me either.

This is a cute shirt on you. Wear it in the summer too! Cotton is lovely to wear in the summer, esp.

Thanks for the review. It helps to see this on a figure similar to mine. I think cotton was a good choice for this, and it is usually the easiest of all fabrics to wrok to with.
