Thanks for adding so many practical hints. I may be able to wear my first try with this pattern in public!

I love this top. I have made 10 and have several more cut out. It is my "go to" pattern for fall & winter and it is just so much darn fun to make. Black velour with Jeans for around the house, metallic knits, slinky, jersey, stretch velvet for fancier. Sometimes I continue the top dart down the length of the top of the sleeve with a 1/4 inch SA, for a 2 piece sleeve look. Sometimes I add a 1/4 inch bust dart and adjust the front length 1/2 inch longer (as per Marcy Tilton who adds a narrow bust dart to most knit tops even for small busts). I often sew the hems by hand. I never would have figured out the neck construction had you not given these instructions. Thanks so much.

That's nice! I love the print and the funnel neck. Your detailed instructions are a good reminder of the little extras that make a difference.

Gorgeous top and fabric! I'm looking for a similar style top and this one's a keeper.

Lovely top and excellent review. I've made this without the collar and loved it. When I made the collared version, I'll be sure to refer to your instructions.

Nice-looking top, and great work on "filling out" the instructions, too.

Very pretty! I'm sure funnel necks would be great on you. I wish I could wear them, but they make me look like a pin head, unfortunately.
