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.

How fun to see this fabric used over and over, to create very different projects! You made use of the print so beautifully. You were definitely inspired with this top!
