What a cute pattern. I think the style looks great on you, but yess you will need to bring in the shoulders a bit.

You get a bra with the clear straps and then not worry about them showing. The blouse is so pretty.

I just made this same blouse and I am having the same issues. I believe I also need to go down a size but I think the neckline is just too wide on this particular blouse. Nice to know that I am not the only one with these issues. Congrats on the weight loss!!

Cute top, maybe a little big, like you said. Maybe you could take it apart and cut & sew it in a size 8.

Very cute summer top. Annoying for you on the bra straps, but it certainly looks good. I agree it might be a touch large, but I don't think more than 1 size, based on the picture.

This is so cute! Makes me want to get the pattern, though I don't think it'll fit for a long time (6 mo. pregnant). :)

Em thank you so much for the feedback. I have recently lost 25 lbs and having a very hard time adjusting to my 'smaller size'. I haven't been this size since Jr. High. I'll try making a smaller size next time to see what happens. I very much appreciate you taking the time to comment on the top.

Oh..I was going to delete this duplicate post, but instead, I'll use it to say...CONGRATULATIONS on your weight loss! :-)

That's a very cute top, but since you asked for feedback, I'll try to help. It's a great top, but it looks a little too big for you. Maybe you won't have to do a lot of adjusting for fit if you made the next one a size or two smaller. Also, your shoulders do look a little lopsided, but that might just be because the top is crooked on you. If you make it in the right size, I think the crookedness will disappear. Other than that, you did a great job! Thanks for this review!

Nice! I tried this one a while back and the top seemed very loose to me around the neck and did good.
