Great review! Thanks for the details on fit. I suspect the original pattern might work fro me without an FBA. Love the color!

I am so glad you stuck with this top and didn't call it a wadder too soon. Your adjustments were absolutely perfect and made such a pretty and stylish blouse. The color is gorgeous and (as always!) the inside is just as pretty as the outside. It is so inspiring to see someone take so much care to make sure the inside also looks nice. Very well done!

Very nice job, as always. Green and white are a great looking combo.

Fantastic color! Thanks for the review...although the fact that the bust was oversized and low makes me think that I could probably sew it up right out of the envelope!! Great work, and great save!

That turned out to be very flattering, I am glad that you stuck with it.

This is one of those patterns that did nothing for me until I saw it on you. It is adorable, and you did an awesome job sticking with it and making it fit you perfectly. I also love the apple green with white pants. I was in wadder land at the same time you were so every time I read your blog I was right there with you!

Very cute, Amanda. I always love to look at the insides of your garments as much as the outside.

Nice review of a difficult alteration. The green is a great color on you, and the fit, both front and back, are terrific.

Really pretty top and beautifully made - and I love that apple green color, it looks great on you.

Your top looks so great! The color, the fit, and the finishing inside. I did try this pattern as a beginner (it ended up in my scrap bag!), so you are right, it is not recommended . I have sewn a few shirts since then, successfully, and after seeing your version of it, I think I'm ready to try this one again. Thanks for the very informative review.

Very helpful review. Your top is very cute and well made. The color looks great on you. I've had this pattern on my list since it came out. I think I need to make it up. I only hope mine looks as cute as yours. :)
