With your embellishment, this top is a lot like the embellished tops in Coldwater Creek. You look nice in it; I hope you enjoy wearing it.

Very nice looking top. I like the embellishments, too. Great job!

Clever top embellishment and great jewelry design. I see many similar style RTW with a contrasting neckband, too. Many possibilities with this pattern as you said.

Great looking top! I love the embellishment~makes it very 'boutique' looking!

Very pretty Cathy, I don't have this pattern. But when I do get it, (thanks a lot, BTW!) I'll have to remember your trick for block fusing.

A lovely top with the added embellishments Cathy! Another winner :)

Nice looking top! The beads are a wonderful touch. I think the neckband is a success and the shape is good for you. I'm envious, I like this style but it just doesn't work on me.

Thank you for the information about the neckband. Seaspur mentioned this was a problem too. This is why I like this website so much.

Cathy, thanks for your review and for the photo of your FBA. I made a similar style type and had a big 'dip' in the front because I did not do an FBA. Your top lays nicely across your chest and drops from your chest without a big dip. The neckline fits you very well, too. Very attractive top!

Very nice top! And a great detailed review as well. It is so helpful to see plus sized women model their garments so others can see the fit. Thank you!

That is a really nice top. You did such a good job and I really love your embellishment - classy.

Very nicely fitting and super attractive top - the color suits you and the bead embellishments are 'just right' - not too much not too little. Love the jewelry you made, it will look super with this ensemble! AND a very helpful review too. THANKS!

Cathy what a cute top!

I really like your top. I was looking at the pattern but didn't like the fashion drawings.

What a great top. Thanks for the tip about the neckline facing. It will come in handy for many of the patterns that have this type of neckline. Love the matching jewels, I wish I could make such lovely jewelry!

Thanks for all the encouraging comments. I wasn't sure if the beads looks right. I feel better about them now. You're the greatest!

A very versatile top - I love the embellisments and your jewellry accessories.

I appreciated being reminded about block fusing. That would have made the neckband easier to manage.

I liked the embellishment you did on this top. The color is also very nice for this top. I think it would look wonderful on you in a rust and also in turquoise! Thanks for the review!
