Love the looks great. As far as thinking you constructed the top wrong...You didn't...based upon the pattern envelope the short sleeve version is gathered on the right side where as the long sleeved version is on the left side. Go figure...why they did that! Your top looks lovely.

Peter's right: that color is REALLY flattering on you. I love the top and am so glad you were able to save it :)

Great recovery! LSO - I love it! Your finished top is absolutely wonderful. You might have actually improved on the pattern.

Love your top! I have made this pattern a ton of times. I stabilize the neckline with 3/8" knitted elastic zig-zagged to the edge before turning, then turn and topstitch with double needle. Stretch the elastic just the tiniest bit to snug the neckline. This worked great for me - as long as I am careful not to stretch too much (makes neckline too tight) and sew a 1:1 ratio after the overlap at CF - it would pull at the seams.

Ha! Those are Tina's words so I have to give her the credit. Those three little words have revolutionized my approach to sewing. =)
