Count me as one who hasn't made the top either. The top looks fantastic on you - I love your fabric choice too!

I need to try it again. Adding to the underbust seam is exactly what I need! Thanks for the solution :) Nice top!!

Wonderful top, Ann. Any you look spectacular in it. Maybe I'll look for some suitable fabric and try it too.

Pretty top! I haven't made it yet either, although I'm getting ready to make view C as part of my plan for the Wardrobe contest.

I haven't made it yet either! I'm with Sew4Fun, I wasn't sure if the style would suit my shape, but now that I've seen how wonderful it looks on you I'm going to make one. Your fabric choice is wonderful too!

Not me. :) I haven't made it, although I do have the pattern. I was reluctant as I'm not sure this style would suit me, but I've changed my mine after seeing your lovely top. It looks so nice on you and I like the geisha fabric you chose.
