Great top. I like your idea of putting elastic in the front panel to keep it in place.

Hi, I've just finished this wrap jersey in a navy wool and had exactly the same problems! I've just been considering how to rectify the horrendous gaposis (my favourite new word from this website!) where the wrap joins at side seams. I was considering making darts (having already shortened the wrap a little) and will now get on and do it. Will endeavour to post a photo of the finished item! Only other change for next time - omit the zip - I don't have to undo it to put my jersey on. Clair (kiwibabe in England)

Looks really good on you - I just made one of the other versions and will review in the next few days.

Great top with unusual detailed top - and this makes it stand out. Good job.

Thanks for the review--you have included a lot of helpful information--especially about modifying the pattern to leave out the zipper and adjusting the upper front panel.
