MNBarb: It isn't a terribly deep v-neck, the basting probably did have a bit to do with it, but even unbasted I'd say it was at least an inch or two higher than other wrap tops I have. I think this is because of the high neckline in back, it helps provide a bit more coverage.

Very good looking top. I like the use of striped fabric. Thank you for a great review.

Thanks for the review. I usually avoid wraps because they are too low in the neck for me and my lack of cleavage. Yours appears to have a small V when comparing it to the pattern photo. Did you do something to make this happen or is it because you basted it shut? This might be a wrap I can use.

Very nice! I have this pattern - but never thought about using a woven for it... this opens up a whole world of possibilities!

Looks great! Good to know that knit patterns can work with wovens too:)
