I love the embellishment you did! Great job!

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!

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

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

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!

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!

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

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!

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

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!

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!

Love your top embellishments! Cute!!

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

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.

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

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.

Very attractive top, Cathy! Very nice use of embellishments!

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

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.

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

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.
