Thanks for your review - what a fabulous look on you - and you stuck it through 2 muslins & made adjustments - sharing your experience! It is so encouraging - reading this - Yes, it is going to happen, I'll get back into sewing!

This top turned out fabulous. Thanks for the tips about the high neckline and your changes to get a good look.

I LOVE this top, and you look FABULOUS in it! I really like your idea of having the fold-over facings, as I've wondered about the neckline on this one (possibly being too high). Yours is perfect. :o)

Your top looks terrific. Hard to imagine the muslin being so high as this top looks plenty high at the neck. Thanks for the tips to help when I get to this pattern.

Love it! I have been looking for a wrap top with a high neckline for winter and this was on the shortlist, I will definitely get this one now. The gathering is very flattering, good on you for persevering.

Isn't this the nicest elegant and comfy top? Yours looks really wonderful on you, and removing the facings is a big improvement.

As usual, your top looks wonderful on you. The modifications worked well, and I know you will enjoy wearing it.

Very chic. I love the changes you made to your top. I have this pattern but haven't made it yet.

Thanks for the info. I made a similar top and have never been happy with the "flappy" facings. I really like your version.
