I've been contemplating this view of this pattern (which I have in my stash). Your top came out very nicely. (Great outfit, also)

I have to did you every come up with that collection of sizes and alterations to fit you? Looks great!

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!

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

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

Ryan's mom, it is always worth it to get the correct fit for your figure. I'm impressed with what you've done to get there. I love the fabric and this looks gorgeous on you.

Darling top! Lovely hair also!

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

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!

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.

Wow - so many alterations but a perfect fit and an absolutely gorgeous fabric too.

Wow -- what a bunch of alterations, but then, what a perfect fit!

Thanks for this review and the sleeve cap adjustment reminder. I bought this pattern yesterday and am looking forward to making it up.
