This is a great top. I love that you added the shoulders.

Annette, I went back and looked at your black/white top. I do NOT think you look like a frump in it AT ALL!!!! Thanks everyone for the nice comments!!!

Guess what? I like it BETTER with the shoulders! I've just got one question: How come when I made a top out of a black/white print, I looked like a total FRUMP, and when you made yours, you look FANTASTIC? And don't tell me it's because you're young and pretty either; I don't want to hear it! Finally: We already knew your mom was raising you up right, and now we know your dad's doing the same. :o) Good for them, and good for you!

I love this version of the cut out top. I think I might make this one with the shoulders too. I agree with others, you are an inspiration!

Great top. I am in agreement with the addition of the sleeves as well.

I'm so glad you posted this, because I've been wanting to do the same thing with that pattern (add shoulders) and haven't gotten around to it. I love your top!

Very nice looking knit top. Love the fabric and it looks great on you. Great job! :)

I agree that it looks better in your version, with the shoulders covered. And center back seams are always great, because they add extra shaping, so I'd say you did the pattern a favor there, too. Great choice of fabric, and great looking top!

Very cute on you! The shoulders really make this top so adorable on you~I can't imagine it any other way. Way to go dad!

I love it with the covered-up shoulders. Thanks for inspiration.

You look beautiful in your new top.

Very, very flattering top on you, Meggie, and I agree with everyone else that adding the shoulders adds so much more class. Your fabric is fabulous and how clever of you to reconfigure your cutting to make it fit. Another lovely creation, Lily

Meggie Lulu - it looks lovely on you - well done on the alteration and the good sense to see it as your Dad does!

I love what you did with this top! It was very clever of you to figure out how to use this pretty fabric and cover the shoulders for a nicer style. Well done.

This is so elegant and adorable on you. I am SO IMPRESSED that you found this knit in the remnant bin-it is gorgeous! You are an inspiration Meggie!

I wish I had learned to sew when I was as young as you are. You are so talented and I love reading your reviews.

Very cute! I don't know that shoulderless tops are appropriate at any age unless you are going out for a special event. What a great idea to add the shoulders!

Wow Meggie... your top looks perfect on you! I love your changes to the pattern and the fabric is so cute too! You are a true problem solver!

Meggie I love this top on you. Looks like a completely different top to that in BWOF. You are an inspiration to all of us!

I like it better with the shoulders... for everyone. Must just be my age. ;^)

Great top, and frankly much more versatile than without shoulders!

I've loved the things you've made for Claire, but it is nice to see you model something yourself. Looks very nice on you and I would think you could wear it for many different occasions.

You're right, this is a darling top and it looks so good on you.

I like this so much with the shoulders, Meggie. I agree with your dad, to. You look so cute.

I have been wanting to do this one with the shoulders in as well. Glad to see it looks so cute this way.

To be honest with you, I don't love this top with the cut outs. I think the ones here look awesome, but the people I see IRL -- not so much. This is age appropriate and really cute!

I think it looks better with the shoulders! You have done a great job with this top.

I love it with the shoulders! I looked at this top and thought, "no way!" but it's totally different with the shoulders. I'll have to look at it a little closer b/c it's definitely more me with the shoulders. Thanks for the inspiration!

Meggie, it's so cute on you! I like that you added the shoulders, great fix (and I agree with your dad, LOL!)
