I think your top looks lovely on you, and if you do make it again with the wider neckline, it would be perfect. Very versatile and cute as.

GREAT top, Andrea. And you're so right, that BOW just MAKES it. :o)

Cute top with a more dressy look with the addition of the bow.

Very flattering! A wider neckline will look nice as well, but it also looks good as is.

The bow is adorable and the entire outfit is great. I love the plaid skirt with the black top.

I have been looking at this pattern and your review convinced me. You did a great job. I agree the drawing has the neck much bigger and the bow if so fun. I learned a lot of what to think about when I make this pattern from this review. Thanks

Cute comfy top, love the bow and the pretty pup! What's his/her name?

It's a cute top - good for work, etc. I see what you mean about adding more to the bottom length. I would also be happier with a longer top. GOOD JOB.

That bow really is cute, isn't it! I see what you mean about the neckline, but it's still a lovely top. Was the bow difficult?
