Great review, Belinda, very helpful! The top looks great even if you're less than thrilled with the fabric.

I like the fabric, it turned out cute. I wish I liked my top from this pattern. Maybe if I had your body. . .

Very nice top. The fabric looks good, but if you are not happy with it better splurge for something more to your liking. The cut is certainly flattering to you.

Belinda - great review as usual and very helpful about the FBA. I like the look of the fabric although it's a shame about the quality. I have this pattern and have yet to make it up. You've convinced me to give it a go.

Very smart top Belinda. Thanks for the tip on the fabric. I like the look of the fabric so much I probably would have headed to Spotlight tomorrow.

This is a good review. I'll be sure to refer to it once I pull this pattern out of my stash to try. The fabric looks lovely, and not poor quality at all.

Thanks for such a useful reivew. I've tried a quick muslin and didn't like that excess ease and your great result will send me back to start again.

I am just about to make the crossover top so your review is well-timed. I am also the same size as you, so a double thanks!

Beautiful top! And a timely review too. I'm whipping up two more of the gathered scoop neck style, then moving on to the wrap version. Very helpful review!

OP Gal said...
Thanks for the very detailed review. Your top seems to fit beautifully, so when you make it in a fabric you like, you should have a winner!

Thanks for all the information n your review. Your garment is beautiful. I'm about to cut out this pattern. Your review came just in time.

Very cute top! Great fabric. Nice fit. :)

Thanks for the review Belinda - this is on my to-do list. I've just made up that fabric as well - luckily I got it for about $2/m on sale as there was something really wonky with the grain.

Your top came out cute and is flattering! I still want to make mine again with some adjustments since the style is nice.

I just bought this pattern last weekend with this view in mind. Thanks so much for the heads up on size. Great review and I like your top.

Love it Belinda ! Shame about the SL fabric quality, but the cornflower blue is definitely your colour. Another great review - thank you :))))

Wearable muslin, Belinda? This looks very RTW, but better! Fabulous fit and nice work! Thanks for the heads up on wrap version!

Lovely top Belinda, its a pity about the fabric quality as the colour looks really great on you.

Thanks for the detailed review-- especially concerning the sizing. And it looks great on you!

AnneM said...
Thanks for your review. Your top is very nice. Hopefully it lasts longer than the fabric quality would lead you to expect. I'll know to size down when I try this (which is on the - very long - list).
