I missed your review until the thread came up about this top.... It so cute! Thanks for the good advice!

Great review, Melissa! Thanks for the very easy to follow instructions on the double front-it makes perfect sense, and your top looks really good, too :o)

I couldn't figure out how you used the binding on the neck after you just lined it. Then I clicked on the pic and saw you were talking about the BACK neck. I may be the only dork confused by that, though. Anyway, I love both tops so thank you for the review. I was wondering if it would look as good in a 46 as it does in the 36. You just know I'm going to have to try it out.

Nancy the bind I used makes about a 1/4" binding, but if you don't have a binder, you could do a self binding with no trouble. HTH's! :-)

This is a great adjustment to this pattern. I read the directions and didn't like the idea of the wrong side showing. Which binder size did you use? Thanks for the review.

Fantastic description, and the picture is really helpful! Great job figuring out how to modify this into an awesome top!

The top is beautiful, Melissa. And you've taken so much time and trouble to explain and illustrate your brilliant modifications so clearly. Thank you!

So cute, and a great fit! This looks so much better than the twist tops everybody is making.

That looks fabulous on you! Looking at the results of your binding attachment, I might need to invest... Great review!

Very cute! You must have to build a new closet for all the new tops that you have been making. They all look great.

Ugg, I'm such a dork - yes HawkeMorningStar, I worded that wrong, I'm going to go fix that! Duh! LOL

Melissa, this looks really great. I love the fabric and it suits you really well. Thanks for your advice about the modifications you made. It helps to know what others have done to overcome pattern issues. This is another great top!

Beautiful and thanks for the great instructions...I have looked at the top but thought the same thing you did it would look funny with the backside showing...thanks for the great review.

Looks great, I can see it so clearly. Thanks for all the tips, will work great in sheer onionskin, too sheer for a single layer. BTW, not sure in your picture , dont you sew RIGHT sides of bodice together? Really inspired to make this one soon! Thank You!
