Oh wow, that's a lovely top. Raised up a notch from the one in the mag too. Perhaps you could sew a loop of ribbon (with a dome at each end) in the centre front to pass through your underwear - this would stop it falling forward. Not sure if that is the problem, so ignore if it's unwelcome!

This looks beautiful in velvet! Thanks for your super review. And I, like others, think it looks great on you. Really great. :)

Another vote here to get rid of the camisole! You look cute wearing the top, you just have to get used to a style you don't normally wear.

It is a very pretty shirt. It was so low on the model that I didn't even think of making it, but your adjustment seems to have raised the neckline to a better level. It looks better without the cami, but maybe a modesty panel would make you more comfortable. It probably is better for date night than for teaching, however.

This top looks great on you! The color is wonderful as is the style. If the V is too low for you, you might want to cut it higher but you have FANTASTIC collar bones which scream V-Neck.

Here's another vote for no camisole under this gorgeous top! I know it's hard step outside the comfort zone, but to an 'impartial' observer, this looks smashing on you. The videos & photos of the volcano on your blog are outstanding -- thank you!

Very rich and elegant. I think that it looks great without the top while you are standing straight, but I understand how self conscious it can make you. I think that you will get lots of compliments on this shirt.

I think your top looks great on you! Thanks for the photos showing how to construct the front. I had a dress for my Barbie doll out of the same color velour fabric with a similar treatment on the front as your top. Your top reminds me of my Barbie and her gorgeous gown.

I think it's a great top on you--no need to worry about feeling self conscious!

Even if you don't like the design of the top the color looks so good on you.

This top is fabulous on you - and it's not too low! Take that camisole off!

Even if it isn't your normal style is looks really nice on you. The color is very pretty and the fabric looks great for that pattern!

LOVE the deep purple. I think this looks great on you. Thanks for the detailed review.

Very pretty shirt, even if it is not to your liking. I think though, if I decide to sew it, I will just come read your instructions and forget the ones included in BWOF!!
