Wow, glad you could save it! Nice embelishment with the rickrack and flowers!

I found exactly the same issues with this pattern and filed it in the bin in the end. I think there are better patterns for similar tops. I have to say though that your top looks so pretty and the rickrack and embroidery complements the fabric beautifully.

Your top looks very nice due to all the adjustments you had to make or else this may have been a wadder. Thanks for telling it like it is!!

Thanks for the heads up on this pattern. I love your fabric and your embellished rick-rack trim. Nice job.

Cute top; thanks for the review. I had that same quirky fit issue with the Simplicity It's So Easy tunic pattern I tried a few weeks ago.

Great results, and this review has motivated me to finally toss my copy of this pattern -- I never did get my muslin the way I wanted it. Do you remember the number of the similar KS pattern you had better luck with?

Kwik Sew 3377 was the pattern that did not have as many problems, but is similar

Your top turned out fine in the end, but thanks for the information about this pattern. Cute though it looks, I'll avoid it.

Thanks for the heads up. Will avoid this one. Your top turned out beautifully after all the adjustments.
