You really have talent for choosing patterns and fabric that marry well. I think, perhaps, everything looks good on you!

Beautiful work. It's so nice to see your creativity with this pattern through all of your tops. Lovely.

Well... thanks to you and a few other reviews I have added this pattern to my list to buy next time McCalls is on sale. I normally wouldn't have picked this one out for a tank but "hey" it looks fantastic on you and all your versions. Worth a try! I really like how you design this basic all the looks!

Thanks HLT! I was thinking that the layers were stitched to the bodice for the same reason you mentioned - bulk at the neckline. It is a FAB top!

Thanks everyone for your comments. MarshaG., the fluttery laye are mostly attached to the bodice. Only 1 layer is sewn into the neckline seam binding. IMO, more than 1 extra layer sewn in will cause the seam to get chunky & not so pretty. Hope this helps!

Love these are very talented and creative!

WOW! Your DIY's are FAB! On the random layered top, are most of them stitched to the bodice/body, or are they all attached at the neckline? I can't quite visualize the how-to, but certainly love it!

I like how you made the pattern differently. Although I like the pattern designs, they wouldn't particularly flatter me. I like your versions better, and could possibly wear them. Thanks for the ideas.
