J'espère que les retardataires ont le droit de commenter aussi ;-)) This top is great, great, great, your modification gave an excellent result. The necklace adds a touch of style that finishes the look wonderfully. Great project again !

I like the classy casualness of these tops you make and your design changes are always right on the money. Very flattering. Another great job! And I'm in love with that necklace!

excellent review. They are a wicked company with their falsely advertised drawings and their notches that always don't match. I'm sure everyone will be so grateful to you for trying them out and making the modifications for everyone so we can make them! Grey is my favorite color for tees!

Very cute top. Thanks for your review and very useful tips for sewing this! I can see the differences in the pattern drawing and the photo. I had the same experience with another Hotpattern. I enjoy reading about all your projects and insights! Your photos are great too.

That the thing about illustrations (as compared to photographs) - they leave a LOT of room for "artistic interpretation", not good for technical information! Still your version looks fantastic, great work (and save!) on what sounds like a difficult pattern.

Your shirt looks better than the Hotpatterns drawing. Super cute!

Well here's another piece from littlejazzbird that I love! Good tips about the line drawing vs. the actual garment.

As usual, you have pulled off a perfect-looking stylish garment that has exactly the look HotPatterns was clearly aiming for. However, given the modifications you had to make, they missed the target with this pattern. It's too bad for people who lack your confidence and skill at refining the design.

All of your modifications here, Jazzy, have made this into a great looking top. I particularly like your use of the coverstitch machine to add interest. You're looking good!
