I disagree - I think you look lovely in this top. Beautiful job as usual.

Great top! Did you make the pants also? If so, what is the pattern #.

I would love to try this, but if it drapes that much on someone who normally does an FBA, I fear it would hang to the knees on flat-chested me. Actually, I think it looks better on you than you think it does. Maybe the look will grow on you.

I don't think you look a bit frumpy in this top. The fabric is wonderful--such a beautiful color.

Both tops look lovely on you, and vice versa. It's a very graceful look, not at all matronly. You should be the HP model!

Ann, I think it's the length of the sleeves that are making it look frumpy. I do like the other version much better on you, but this one is certainly not ugly or unwearable!!

Ann, you certainly don't look matronly or frumpy in this. I think it looks quite lovely. The drape of the sleeves looks as though they might have some movement in them which I think always adds a bit of femininity to garments. At the end of the day, only you know whether you feel good in something you've made.

I think you look lovely too! But if you are not happy then it is probably the busy - ness of the bust, print and the cowl. But in the photos it looks fine. Very pretty!

I really think it's Okay. I know I would not be used to big cowl neck...sometimes it just takes getting used to.

You never look less than wonderful in the garments you sew--I can't imagine anyone EVER thinking you look frumpy! I love this and the cape top.

Ann with yur smile the word "frumpy" cannot be applied to you and it definitely does not apply to this top. Nice looking top!
