Very pretty1 It helps that I love those colors and really like the effect of the foldover elastic. This top is very flattering on you.

Great looking top. It's very becoming and the fabric is beautiful. The use of FOE to solve the neck problem is ingenious.

Well, you'll be right in style with the low top, but I also wish the pattern were cut a little differently. Pants are higher now -- or at least shirts are longer -- so maybe this too shall pass. It turned out beautifully and in the picture really doesn't look too low.

I think you avoided successfully the bull's eye effect. You look great with that top ! I love the colour on you. By looking at the plants in you garden, hummm I thought you had to be in a warmer zone them Canada is. You seam to have a great garden. Multi talented woman ! Bravo again for the top.

Nancy, beautiful top! I agree with you on the exposure risks of twist tops, but yours sure does look pretty!

Cute top, thank you so much for the pic of the FBA, I have thought about making this top but could not figure that out.

So pretty on you! I love the colors and the print. I have this pattern, but, haven't tried the twist top version yet. Thank you for sharing your beautiful top & great review with us!

So pretty. I think the print you used is wonderful in this pattern, and it looks great on you.

Nancy, you've done a great job with this top and it really looks good on you. You have no need to worry about the flower design placement. It looks fine to me. I'm just about to embark on making this pattern myself and your review is very timely as well as being exceptionally helpful.
