I was thrilled to read this review as I have been looking for a wrap knit top that wasn't all about cleavage, if you know what I mean. :) I don't want to have to go shopping for a camisole. This pattern is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I have a gorgeous red lambswool sweaterknit I've been saving once I found the perfect pattern. And this looks like it. :)

WOW! That looks great! I love wrap tops and have had this pattern in my stash for a few months. I've been meaning to get to it, and seeing your top just pushed it towards the top of my 'to sew' pile! Great review!

Ooh, LOVE this! I like how the lines in the print emphasize the diagonal wrapping.

I especially like the yellow version - love the way the fabric design works with the folds. That sold me on this top :) Maybe this is a silly question, but does it really need a zipper?

Great! Gorgeous tops! I echo yr sentiments with regards to the dipping necklines.I think invisible zippers are much nicer in tops and dresses. The extra work is a nice touch. Enjoy reading yr review.

In addition to being a lovely stand-alone top, this looks as if it would be wonderful in place of a shell under jackets, too. Great top, great review.

Thanks for the nice comments! I did try to put the top on without a zipper, but couldn't get the darn thing on!! I would definitely try to do without one if at all possible! I usually wear a 16. This has a close fit, no wiggle room!!

Wow -- great looking tops! I've been looking for a sexier top to wear instead of turtlenecks. And the bodice looks like it will be really flattering on even me!

I like this top. I have this same fabric and keep wondering how I want to make it up. It looks great they way you used it.
