Gorgeous fabric and color, but you are right, the Vogue is much lighter and prettier for you.

Both of your versons are beautiful, but the Vogue is stunning!

Wow! Although I thought your first version was already lovely, I adore your new version! Impressive!

What a shame this didn't work for you. It is so pretty on the dressform.

vacarisella: Unfortunately, the shoulder issues and bad seams rendered this unwearable. I have now cut it apart and reused the fabric for a version of Vogue 8463. And yes, I am way too critical...

Maybe you should wear it once, and see what the opinions are. Sometimes us sewers are too critical of things we make.

Maybe you should wear it once, and see what the opinions are. Sometimes us sewers are too critical of things we make. By the way, I think it looks great on the dressform!

Thank you for this review. I like the top, but am also thinking that as a vertically challenged person myself, it may not look good on me.

Well, it looks awfully good to me on the dress form, and the fabric and color are great. Thanks for the warnings about the clear elastic as stabilizer and using a three thread overlock instead of 4. I'm short and just a bit fearful, but I'll continue making the 2603. Thanks for a helpful review.

Wow, the color is fabulous. And it looks terrific on the dressform. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you.
