Love this version Debbie and your usual great review. I love how you used the different sizes to avoid an fba. I will have to order this one!

Thanks for the detailed info about your alterations. I have made a muslin of this top and it is generally all over too big for me on the bolero pieces, but not in the body adn I wasn't sure how to alter it to fit better. Your alterations sound very similar to those that I will need to do too. Thanks, your top looks lovely.

This is lovely- the way you've placed the fabric gives a very slimming profile !!

It's truly amazing, what you've done with this fabric. As it turns out, this pattern begs for a border print, even though they don't show a version. You look fab in it, too.
