I seem to have the same sleeve problems as you do. I tried to follow your explanation; even drew some diagrams, but I got lost after you raised the bodice below the armhole 1 1/2 inches. Could you draw another diagram showing where all the changes were made? I know it is a lot to ask, but I really would like to know how you achieved your great fit.

This is a great review. I have this pattern too, and I know many of your suggestions will come in handy whenever I get around to making it. I hesitated to buy it, since I already have (at least) one twist top, but this one had so many other nice tops on it, it was worth it. You look GREAT in your outfit!

love it! looks great and without your review we'd have no idea how many alterations you needed. So worth it though, and you'll have lots more beautiful tops

Love it! Is this the fabric you were referring to in the Muslin skirt class? No matter, it's perfect.

Lots of 'getting there' for a simple top, but the results are wonderful.

I do have that fabric! You beat me to using it. I love your top! And the idea of using the fabric as kick pleats in a black skirt is brilliant. I like the new hair too!
