WOW that's pretty!!! Ok, now I gotta do another one, but in a print this time! Your grey "muslin" looks super comfy for casual chilly days. Your print top looks smashing!!! (And yes, actually, it does bug me that yours looks better than mine...that's just so rude of you!) LOL!!!

I really like both versions too! The fit is perfect on the print top but the gray top looks so comfy. I'll have to pass on this pattern since I'll never turn out such a nice one without a coverstitch, but hope to see you make more!

What a helpful review, thank you. I love the fabric on the second version, so bright and cheery, just what's needed in the middle of winter.

Looks like you've mastered this pattern (again, and as usual). The fit looks perfect, and it's nice to hear that the cowl isn't fussy -- if you do it right! The neckline doesn't look too low cut, either. The print fabric dresses it up -- I gotta remember that.

I love the great fit you achieved. Wonderful hint about constructing the cowl neck to avoid unsightly seams showing. Very pretty on you.

Very pretty. Thanks for the great review. I wondered about the cowl.

Great tops, Patti. The neckline is quite nice. I'm looking forward to trying this pattern. Thanks!

Nice top and great review. The pattern seems to be deliberately drafted for a dropped shoulder but we PRs don't seem to want that! Good thing we are so crafty. It is funny that two of you now had had issues with the cowl. This is totally not an issue for me. I wonder if it is due to the fabric? I have cotton in my bamboo/cotton/lycra jersey.

I cut my top out before reading your review. With your helpful tips I can make the needed adjustments before I sew. The colors in this print look beautiful on you! I love how your top turned out. Thanks for the great review!

I never thought of using a contrasting fabric for the cowl. That looks very nice! The wiggly line on the sleeve is a really cute detail too. Thanks for the tips in your review!

A good style for you. I like the coordinating fabrics.

Oh, this one is cute too. Love the fabric and your use of contrast on the collar and sleeve.

How funny we picked the same fabric for the same pattern! I love your version - especially with 2 different prints. Very nice!

I LOVE this! The contrasting cowl and wiggly-lined sleeves just take it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL. :o)

Love your wiggly line version, Patti !!!!

What a pretty top on you. I love both versions. The wiggley line is so interesting and quirky. Both tops look cozy and stylish. Are you cold on that side of the mountain? It's very snowy over here.

I love both of your tops! I have this pattern but haven't gotten to it yet.
