Nice top, perfect with that fabric (even if the fabric is a pain).

Thank you for the hints about the closures and staystitching. Wish I had a serger as I have tons of brocades I could use for this. Maybe I can figure some way to make the sleeves longer to cover my arm flab! Maybe a coordinating charmeuse or chiffon? Hmm...

Your top is gorgeous! I love, love, love the fabric. You did an excellent job with the sewing. I also agree that your arms look fine. I have this pattern and even have some fabric I got to sew it - the trick is to sew it. Your comments are very helpful.

Cute top, very pretty fabric. I wouldn't worry about your arms, they look fine to me, besides have you seen what other people are wearing?

Very cute top and I think the sleeves look good on you, also. It would be cute with the red Asian design.

Soliel, the fabric has no stretch to it. Only cut on the bias.

The fit of this top is exquisite. No alterations?! Your are so fortunate. The slim sleeves look like they would go well under a jacket. Your ball buttons are fabulous. Thanks for the helpful hint on making the strips long!

Your top is sooo cute. I am guessing it is not stretch, right? Very nice!

Such a simple top but so so chic! Love the closures. You executed them beautifully. I have seen this pattern but didn't pick it up...maybe now I will. Looks very cute, your top, that is.
