:) Good job- this looks so good! I see you DID adjust the neckline. So you don't think the adjustments are worth it? That's what I'd want to do too!!! :)

You have made some cute shirts! These shirts may be muslins but I think you can wear them :) All the hard work looks like the last will be perfect! Can't wait to see it.

Thanks for such a helpful review. You've put a lot of effort into making this pattern work for your body and syle preferences. I can't wait to see your next version, for the mini wardrobe challenge.

I made a version of this last week and had the same issues with the neckline. Thanks for sharing pictures of the changes you made on muslin#2. I'll use them as a guide for changing mine.

Your tops are cute and I really like the seond one. I am not a wide neck person either. As for your uneven shoulders, we all have stuff like that. I always knew my hips were way crooked, but until I saw pictures from the back, I never knew how much. It just makes us unique! The fit you got looks wonderful. Keep sewing!

I like your revised variation a lot. It is cute with the short sleeves and that fabric is a kick!!

Great top - I enjoyed reading your modifications and seeing the improvements. I, too, have uneven shoulders and didn't notice it until sewing last year and I'm 45! LOL
