I like your tops. Since the pattern does call for knit fabrics, it sounds like it runs big if you cut a 12 but had to remove a lot. Would you say that's right.

Two lovely tops! Did you ever finish the lace version? If so I'd love to see an update.

I didn't do anything to the neckline, just left it raw. I have seen this alot in RTW, and I think it works for this material.

The neckline is so well made. Does it have a facing? It lies so nice and flat. I love the fabric, too.

Very nice! I am going to give this one a try!

Thanks for the review. I have this pattern, and will probably make it up someday. Your top (including the animal print you chose) look exactly like the pattern envelope.

What a great top!! I've never noticed this pattern before and never think about princess seams on a knit. Gotta have one now, as it looks so flattering! Thanks for the enabling! :)

The shoulder princess seams provide a beautiful fit and I agree that this top really answers a stylish need in a well rounded wardrobe. Lovely top, Lily
