Looks terrific on you - I know you are the wearer but I do like it with the skirt as much as with the jeans

So clever to apply the RTW double layering to your top. Your method of construction was very sensible. It looks great on you!

Sewdelighted, Often I pin the crossover spot on this type of top to prevent gaping. It doesn't gape if I stand up with good posture but, since often I don't, the pin helps!

I made this top and loved it until I wore it in public and noticed that it separates at the worst place. I didn't do an FBA. Felt like it wasn't needed. Did you put elastic in the front? does it gape at all?

The top is terrific. Great fabric. Looks wonderful with jeans. It inspires me to try working with mesh fabric.

I absolutely LOVE this top.. and I really like what you did with the fabric. It's such a great idea to use a sheer knit like that! It looks fabulous with your jeans. I'm so glad you wrote this review, it was very helpful. I have some fabric like that I just haven't known what to do with until now!

I actually like it with the skirt. Although, I know things can appear different in person . They are both wonderful as usual.

You'll get great mileage out of your new top. It looks so great with a skirt or jeans. It is so versatile..... dresses up or dresses down easily! Very pretty.

Beautiful top. Wonderful fabric. I like this top with your SB skirt. All the pieces turned out great!

Your top looks great on you! That blue is a nice color for you. I have lined mesh tops with a knit mesh lining from EOS. I think its called power ner, but it works great for linings.

Ah, yes, going back to the photo I see the sheerness of the sleeves as contrasted to a doubling of fabric in the bodice. Very, very lovely. Thanks for the detail.

The top looks great on you and the construction details are very helpful.

Thank you for the sewing order description -- makes sense to keep those seams inside. Wonderful review and a smashing top!
