Posh! Great colors. I love this top with the neckline folded into a shawl collar like this. Awesome colors, too. They look great on you.

This version of this top is just sensational. You look great! You've convinced me to order the pattern, too. Thank you for sharing your review.

Oh, good question, homejewel. I should have mentioned in the review that the neck opening "on me" can be draped to be more open or arranged so that it imitates the pattern image. I'm always surprised at my fit in this area with smaller neck, narrow shoulders and SB which usually gives me more open necklines. Whichever look you prefer, you probably should make up a muslin or measure carefully to achieve that. Thanks to all for your kind and encouraging comments!

I love everything about this top - the colors/fabric/style. You have great taste and knows what goes together well. I have this pattern and have a question. I was wondering if you altered the front neckline or is the View A a bit misleading? The View A picture on the pattern seems to show very little opening at the neckline. Regardless, I will be making one of these tops! Thanks for the great review.

You look so chic in this. I love it with the belt. (I've been looking for a belt like that!)

Gorgeous top! I will have to revisit this pattern, remembering your beautiful work and taking cues. The belt is so pretty and adds to the whole ensemble.

Fabulous top. The fabric is perfect for the pattern. I love the way the stripes go together in the back. You do such marvelous work and know so many tricks. For instance, that you sewed an extra deep seam at the sides of the top neck for a better fit. Who else would know to do this?

Fantastic fabric. I love you wearing it with the belt and I thank you for that view. I wouldn't make it seeing it without the belt but with the belt- great!!! An inspiration for sure.

Fabulous top - nice fit! I have been working on this pattern, exact same view A/C combo, for months. (okay, not every day). I've got so much fabric bunched up at the back of my neck that I don't know where to start modifying. You model it with the neckline turned down like a collar - this is a great idea. Thanks for a your review.

You look so nice in this top. Such a great style for you.

This looks great. Lining it changes it so much, I wouldn't have guessed it was onionskin. I love it with the belt.

You're PRETTY AS A PICTURE in this stylish top. I LOVE the fabric that you've chosen and the warm colors. If this is any indication, your wardrobe is going to be MARVELISIMO! :O)
