Cute top. It is good to know that it looks so cute without the cleavage. I have a similar build and your tips on the length were helpful.

Beautiful job! It looks great. Stretch velvet might be a challenge for this top--check carefully to see if the wrong side shows on the top you did make, because it will show with stretch velvet (which has dramatically different front and back). Lovely job, however.

I think it would look great in a stretch velvet, velour or panne type fabric for the holidays

You did a terrific job on this top. Looks great on you. I just made this with a 3/4 sleeve in a cotton knit and am thinking of making it in some stretch velvet in my stash. I think that if it is really drapey it will work. But, it is not a beginner fabric. It is harder to work on than your cotton knit.

Thanks for the review. You build sounds similar to mine. I'm 5'8 with a long torso also. I'm not large busted either. I also appreciate your construction tips.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions. time2sew: I bought this fabric at ThreadNeedle Fabrics in Essex, Vermont.

I have this pattern for my dds and you can absolutely make it out of a stretch velour for the holidays. You did a great job! I like the idea of the double needle on the front seam....I will try that on my next one....good tip!

Great top for someone so new to garment sewing. To off set the beige you could put a coordinating camisole under to bring some color closer to your face. :) Says, she of "I'm too hot to layer clothes," but it will help with the coloring maybe a rosy or goldie tone.

Your top looks great. Thanks for the tip on sewing higher than the dot. I made this top a few weeks ago, but I cannot wear it to work because of the *reveal* factor. I think it's worth trying again with this tip.

Great review, very pretty t-shirt. I really like it in the print.

Where did you buy your fabric, in Rochester? Do we both live in the same town. I made a knit top out of that fabric that now sits at the bottom of the drawer - unwearable. I used the wrong pattern obviously! Great top!

I think your effort paid off big time! I love your top and the fabric! I would suggest either wearing your top out in the sun or use self tanner to blend your low-cut with some color~ :) Thanks for sharing your detailed review.
