Love the sleeveless look - this really shows off the cut of the bodice.

this looks great on you! the conversion to a top definately worked with your modifications. The back is really very nice!

Your top is beautiful and fits superbly. I like the depth of the V, but to solve the issue of gapping when you sit - perhaps you could construct a small snap in/sew in small piece of similar fabric - I just saw sewn in, in RTW, solving the same issue. BTW, you have a to die for figure - I'm 56 now, have with efforts kept my measurements similar to yours through the years, am the envy of many and am happy when I'm dressed in fitted clothes or in a bathing suit that I am not leered at but admired as fit and good looking. :)
