Ann: I love the neckline on you, but I can see where you wouldn't want to make a lot of these: it's so distinctive it should remain "special". The skirt is great: love the polka dots.

A very classy and elegant outfit, Ann. I do love the skirt, and also the jacket/top. I can see this top with a pair of black slacks also.

What a beautiful neckline and, of course, your changes are wonderful. The combination of the skirt and top certainly is an outfit to wear on any special occasion.

Great looking outfit. I like the skirt without the front and back seams as well.

Thank you everyone. It is so rewarding to read all the comments. Mely5862, I don't have this problem but my top is a little loose across the upper back which may prevent the restricted movement. Sewsue: the skirt is a heavier linen which doesn't seem to be wrinkling very much. Echolalia: a placket would work as long as the top isn't so tight that it pulls open.

Thanks for the great review. The neckline/collar detail is gorgeous on you.

another elegant ensemble, Ann. The top is gorgeous

Whenever I see your name against a listed review, it is the first one I look at Ann - every garment you make has something really stylish about it. The neckline on this top looks fabulous on you. Great fabric choice for the skirt. Do you think that a hidden placket with buttons would work at the centre front? I like the clean lines of the front as illustrated but I don't like snaps.

Lovely outfit, but I especially like the skirt and the pants that come with the pattern. I ignored this pattern because the top neckline is not for me, but the curvy neckline looks great on you.

Lovely outfit Ann, it fits well and looks evry stylish. I really like the linen used in the skirt. How does it go fro creasing?

This is such a lovely outfit! Wonderfully different top and love the polka dot fabric on the skirt. You look stunning in it!

I love the 'top'! Yours looks much better than Vogue's too.

Fabulous Ann! What a gorgeous ensemble; it suits you to a "T". I also like the look of that skirt. Thanks for such a helpful review.

Wow! So pretty and "spring-y".

Very pretty and looks lovely on you!

Fantastic job!! i have been working on this top and I find the arm hole very low. This really restricted movement. Did you have this problem? Thanks

This is SO pretty Ann!! I love the taupe, instead of black, with polka dots. It's a much softer look. You definitely have two winners with this pattern.
