Meanjean, the neckband is applied like ribbing. Cut a long strip, shorter than the neckline, sew into a circle, fold in half lengthwise, then sew the band to the neckline, stretching the band to fit. HTH

Very nice top! The longer length looks good and the colour is really nice.

It looks great on you. I've been eying this on their website, and now I think that I will add it to pattern list.

Thanks for a very nice review. All your changes make for a great looking top. Question: What were the instructions for applying the neckbankd? Did you face it or just fold over?

Cute top, and good review. thanks for the information on making the empire waist lower, high empires don't suit me either but you have got the look without it being so high.

Great review, and a very cute top! Also, I like your idea of moving the empire seam down. I had one of those, "Why didn't I think of that" moments. :o)
