Ann, I've made this top too, and found almost the identical things you did - particularly easing in the sleeves! But I love my top and hopefully I can fit back into it soon. Although, it does look fab in red.....

You look smashing in your top. I think this is a super looking design. Thanks to your warnings on the construction instruction, I may be able to put one together!

Thanks all. Skymom, don't hestitate to make this. I was just trying to warn beginners looking for an "easy" pattern. I looked at your reviews and profile and I think it wouldn't cause you trouble, plus would look great on you.

Ann, I've had the pattern for a while and keep thinking I should make it. I appreciate your warnings re: lack of instructions, etc. It's such a cool variation on a classic style that I know I'd love it if I had it, but with such limited sewing time, I'm not sure I'm ready to get into the hassle of incomplete directions just now...brava to you, however. And the color is superb on you.

I love the top on you, Ann. I have found that the Montana patterns (like the Vogue Miyake patterns) have their own special quirks, and once you have sewn one or two, you get the 'gestalt', and subsequent patterns are more intuitive. Great job! - Ann
