Your stripe matching is perfect and I think it looks great on you and is flattering.

I think it's very flattering. And not just because I'm a geek too :-).

I love your top!! I have this pattern and have made the version with the ruffle in the front, many, many times but never this version. I will have to now! I think it really looks very nice on you!!

I think the top is very flattering! We are always so critical of ourselves. I think however I would have lost my mind over matching those Great Great Job! May have to make this top. Thank you for the review!

Love the top and also like the idea Morisot had.

I think you look incredibly slim in this top. It's really stylish. I know people never see themselves as others do, but I promise you, you've got nothing to worry about.

I love this on you. I don't think you look like a linebacker at all. :) But it does make me wonder if it might not be the best way to wear stripes for my bustline.

I like it. The stripe matching is perfection and that's just how those kind of sleeves look. I like it.

Expert matching of the stripes. Kudos!! I have had this pattern for years with that top in mind but keep pushing it away, thinking what if I didn't like how it looked on me after the painstaking time to match the stripes. As I am a good deal wider than you, it may be a good thing that I have continued to push it away! I absolutely love yours tho.

This is a nice pattern. You win the prize for matching stripes. I wonder if there would be a better "slimming" effect if the stripes went the other way, ie, down from the center seam instead of up. You mentioned on your blog not remembering where you heard of using wooly nylon in the bobbin. I know I heard that from Sandra Betzina. Thanks for reminding me about it.

Your top looks amazing! I love what you did with the stripes.

You did a nice job with the top. And I loved your remark about pattern sizing! (I want custom patterns--where you go into your local fabric store, clip on a couple of dozen sensors, the computer "reads" them, and then they print out the pattern for you.)
