Every time I read a review on this top, I want one...Yours is darling...great job on the chevrons at the zipper....You are right I think I would put the zipper on the side.

Beautiful top - a great use for some of my knits too! I would have to make the same alterations as you. It appeared on your blog that you lengthened through the armscye. Was this intentional or the only option? I am smaller busted with a deep ribcage. The idea of my needing a FBA seemed so absurd that I am just now learning to use it. eta: After checking your blog again, I realized I must have been wearing DH's glasses! The alteration was right where I expected it to be.
