What were the issues that made it hard/easy to make this into a sleeveless top. Did you alter the circumference of the opening? What size did you use to make this new rendition? Was theoriginal as tight fitting?

Beutiful on you. I was considering the same trick with this pattern. I will definitely try it now. I love Christine Jonson's patterns. Looks great with the skirt, very flattering and feminine!

Very nice. Looks very expensive! Those quality touches like the insertion of stabilizing elastic really make a difference, and your photo shows that.

Thanks for the timely review, my next project is to make this one as a tank top so this is very helpful, glad to see it works so well. The elastic tip is great, and I like it without the gathers. Thanks again!

Oh, such a simple idea for a stay to get rid of the pull - I will put that in my bag of tricks. Thanks!
