I got the dress form recently on ebay because the Singer one I'd purchased before that was a piece of junk that fell over every time I tried to pull a top over its head. The seller on this is PGMPro and they have two kinds - this one, which is the lower priced one at $149, and a much higher one that looks like the ones they use on Project Runway. It's very sturdy and pinnable, and I really like it.

Pretty top. I had my eye on this fabric too.

Karen - like j22b any info re the dress form would be much appreciated

Looks really nice - thanks for the review and tip on raising fron neckline. Very timely as I have this pattern and it's soon to go on the cutting table with a knit - also from EOS. Doesn't she have the loveliest??

Very nice. Can you tell me what type of dressform you have there, the cost and anything else you might want to divulge. It looks very nice, too.

Great job on this top! I love the print with this (EOS buttermilks helped me get over my knit fears).

Oh la la! C'est bon! I agree with your raising the front neckline, it's just more comfortable when you don't have to worry about exposing yourself.

I really like the semi-raglan sleeve shaping on this top. You say it's not your best sewing, but I can't tell that from here. It looks great to me! I have this same print in buttermilk but blue/green tones. It is a cool fabric, isn't it?

Karen, I love your top. Is mesh not sheer? On your dressform it doesnt seesm that way. Did you line it?

Gorgeous top. You have sewn some great looking knit tops lately.

Nice! I have a very similar fabric that's been cut and sew a bit, but got intimidated with the neck and put it aside. You've inspired me to take it out and try to tackle my fears of knits!

Very nice top. I agree about raising the front a bit. I've made this a couple times and find it too low for work without a cami. Now if I could actually remember to cut the raised front I need to retrace my pattern with the higher front. :)
