Thanks for posting links to the instruction page - I'm in the middle of moving house/city and my magazines are hiding although I've got the traced pieces with me. I couldn't for the life of me work out why I seemed to have three different pieces for the neck binding!

Both of the knit tops shown here look wonderful. That is a great fit right out of the pkg. and those imaginary drag lines don't even show. I wish still had some of this "swirly" fabric; hounds tooth cleck and linear designs are all that is left. I also like the neckline using Meggie's tip better looking. And you thought it was easier, that is a plus. As always I loved your instructional reviews and I found the fit of this top absolutely perfect on you.

Very nice review! It's so nice to NOT ALTER - less time altering means more time sewing! And both look very nice - you're being too hard on yourself fitting wise.

Looks good Annette - don't know if this helps with drag marks but Pamela's Perfect Tee pattern includes a front with a dart which she told me is specially for the well endowed ladies - of which I am not one - sigh - so I have not used it but a dart may help - just a suggestion

Thankfully this was one of the couple of issues I bought so I don't need to track it down. This sounds like just what I need in a tee shirt pattern.Your review and shirt is awesome. Thanks for all the info and link to the tutorial.

Another pretty top! Really fits nicely through the armhole which can sometimes be a problem.

Ahh la la those dogs, I tell you, they have the best dressed master in the whole state of NE !!! Yes, you did make me laugh. I love both tops. For a change, you did not play to much with the pattern ;-) Now, you are ready for one of those Wrap I suggested a long ago... of what is this my business ? As always, it is a pleasure to read your review.

Wow! I adore the style, fabric design, fit, and above all that fabulous model! You certainly know how to take any design and make it cutting edge!

What a wonderful review! I love this top on you! It fits so nicely and the fabric choice is so perfect for your coloring. The shine adds a special ooompf! I LOVE it. I can't wait to see what you do with that new stash of knit fabric. If this top is any indication, your closet is going to be full of some very nice looking tops. I'll bet Mr. Bailey "loved" his new sparkle look!
