A very nice looking top, Nancy. You know what looks good on you, and how to get the fit just so.

Love both the color and the high neck. It looks great with the jacket.

Really pretty tops Nancy. Thanks for the comparison and information on the 2 types of knits you used. A poly/lycra/cotton makes up very differently that a matte jersey.

Aw, c'mon. Aren't you going to model these for us? The tops are beautiful and look terrific both alone and under your gorgeous jacket. Interesting to see the difference between the Vogue and your CJ top. Great work, great review. Sue

Thank you for your generous compliments. It's true that the two type of knits do make very different tops. I actually prefer the one made from the thinner poly/lycra knit.

Nice! Looks terrific, and you did an exceptional construction job. Well done.

Both tops are lovely and are perfect for your figure. How nice that it looks good with a jacket too. Excellent review.

Beautiful top. It looks great alone and under the blazer. Very interesting comparison with the pattern vs your TNT sloper.

This is a great review and has sold me although I have a short neck so might have to alter to suit. I love your top, great jacket as well.
