Very cute top, beautiful Amanda! Now, after seeing your version of it, I think I'm going to buy this pattern!

It's nice to see a peasant blouse that has more fitting to it. Love your red trim!

That's the kind of accidents I like! This looks like a made-to-go-together set. The trim that you added is so cute. I've never seen any like that. BEAUTIFUL work, as always.

Wow! You really have a great eye for what looks good - I loved your original version but you are spot on with the new neckline because it does look better - this is such a perfect outfit!

So cute, Amanda! I have a piece of black eyelet that I'm just waiting for the perfect pattern to say "make me" to use it for! Your work is perfect, as always!

The lowered neckline is a great improvement even though it looked cute as is.

Definitely, the lower neckline seems to work better with this style -- and really suits you. Well done. :)

I thought the original neckline looked great; but I now see how your alteration improved the look and I will add this knowledge to my future sewing of peasant style necklines. Thanks! You always achieve such great fit with your garments.

Your neckline alteration looks great- really flattering! I plan to make this pattern and I'll be using your alteration tip. Thanks!
