Leslie, the shoulders are a bit too long, but for one of your first projects, I think it looks terrific. Join us in the Plus size sew-along on the message boards and you'll learn all sorts of things to help when sewing for yourself.

it's a very cute top...perhaps you can add a dart on each side to cut down the extra fabric...congrats on an excellent job

You did choose a very difficult fabric to work with. I am currently working on 5 bridesmaids dresses in this fabric and it is challenging even for someone who has sewn for many years as I have. I think your top looks great....if you decide to make it again, choose a friendlier fabric and and play with the pattern at the neckline.....just tape on tissue paper and recut the neckline.....use your new neckline pattern as a underlay and trace off your facing pattern.......I think that you may be surprised at how much difference a softer, friendlier fabric will make for this pattern.

That is a very slippery material - and yet you did such a nice job, especially around the neck. Your 3 pix and the detail information attached are great. Your conclusion, that you continue to choose more difficult patterns is inspirational. Thanks for the review.
