This looks like a pattern I should add to my list--it looks very nice on you, especially the V-neck.

Great top, it looks fantastic on you.

It looks perfect on you. In a stretchier fabric, you may not need more room in the upper bust. I love this pattern too.

I have made this pattern several times and it is definitely NOT maternity. YOur V neck version looks good.l

That's a good looking top and it looks very good on you. It's always nice to see someone find a pattern they really love.

Good looking shirt and looks good on you. Glad to know it's NOT a maternity top!! I'll definitely mark this one to buy.

Hi Pixie Cat - when I go to the Kwik Sew site for this pattern it says it is a maternity top and I thought "no way" - I will definitely be getting it as I love what you have done with it - but only if I find it isn't a maternity top. Know women are now having babies in their old age but not this chick LOL

You go girl - you have been sewing up a storm and they all look great

I think the fit looks good. The folds are barely noticeable. Your v-neck finishing is excellent.

Great top and great pic of the inside of the V neck. I was going to check out this pattern...thanks for the reminder.

Clin - No, it definitely isn't. I tried to edit the listing but it did list "top" not "maternity." Wonder why it's showing up?

Looks terrific - is this really a maternity top?

Your v-neck looks great, inside and out!

The v-neck is very flattering, and very nicely done. It looks like you have a really good fit, except for the little folds. Probably no one else will really notice, but they should be easy to fix. I always get those horizontal folds with KS patterns, because of the extra long front armhole. You could try pinning a horizontal tuck across the upper chest to see if the folds go away. If that's the case, you can make the same change on the front pattern, and then take a little pinch out of the front of the sleeve cap to match the adjusted front armhole.
