Like all 3 versions, Belinda. I have been taken to Frou Frou by my sis, yummy fabrics! Have you tried 06-2005-110? It is a woven BWOF top that some have made into knit tops and similarly has a bias lower front eased onto the bust. (v similar side view as your top) It may be more of a look for girls who need bust enhancement as it has gathers there.

Katharine, for the FBA I just used my "usual amount". The same as I need for nearly all knit top patterns.

You look great! Lovely colour too. I love this top with sleeves, good on you for drafting your own. I borrowed sleeves from the KS wrap top pattern that has roughly the same number, so it came out around the same time. Lovely that the pivot and slide tech worked so well for you. How did you decide how much to add? I altered the conventional way, pivoting the dart along the neckline, then fiddled with the upper front length. It took a while. Congrats on figuring it out so fast! Wish you had been by my side when I sewed it!

You certainly achieved a great fit with your personalized alterations. This is a lovely, wearable top.

Dang it! Will you quit taunting those of us that can't find this pattern ANYWHERE other than to pay $25 to KwikSew for them to pull it out of their archives? Seriously, great job AS USUAL!

Each one is very nice, but I love the newest one. That fabric is wonderful and makes such a pretty top!

Another great detailed review! I wish I could get hold of this pattern - been searching ebay and posted an ad here, but no luck. It is beautiful!

I like everything you make and usually end up buying the patterns! Very nice, Belinda. I like the addition of the longer sleeve. Great work.

I very much enjoyed your review. This pattern looks like a real winner; I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to buy it on the way home from work. I liked the addition of the sleeve, loved your fabric choice and enjoyed the well written description of your process. Thanks!

You tweaked this top perfectly! Very clever sleeve design--thanks for sharing that. Excellent review.

I can see why it's a new favorite. The one reason I don't have this pattern is it's lack of sleeves. Now I see that shouldn't stop me. Love your version.

Great review. I've got this one somewhere and may have to pull it out again. What groovy fabric.
