Very nice for an experiment. Looking forward to seeing the next version as well. The collar is especially nice.

The search continues. But this is lovely, nonetheless and it looks good on you. I love SW patterns but they tend to overwhelm me.

Pretty nice for a muslin. Looks comfy for winter.

FranG, by heavier I mean something like cotton jersey, rayon jersey would be good. My fabric is very light and semi-sheer.

Thanks for this review -- Nice to know it is good for beginners. (My sewing skills seem to be regressing of late.) I wonder how this top would look in slinky. Your gauze is probably too light to give it the swing it might need.

Ann, thanks for your review of this pattern. I have made a muslin and found it very oversized..I am short and of average weight. My thoughts were that I should perhaps use a lighter weight, more flowy fabric and yet you are leaning toward a heavier one. Can you tell me your rational? Do you think the 11oz weight rayon jersey would work? I think I took out 2" from each side..from shoulder down to hem..after trying my muslin which was in a lightweight something! I have yet to return to re-try. The fabric you used for this review would have seemed to be perfect. Thanks for any help!

I think your top still looks very nice, even if the sizing isn't exactly what you were hoping for.
