Thanks so much for posting your fixes. I just noticed this review, and I have a finished top lanuishing in the "fix me" pile for the low neckline. Now if I just saved some scraps, I'll be in business - sewing in a larger trim strip is genious!

Beautiful shirts! Merino knits sound great too - never seen a such for sale here...

I love both your versions. I love the gathering on the red one. I will have to try this next time.

Wow! Your tops look great! Thanks for the neck info! I made a muslin and found the same problem about the low neck gaping.

I've made several of these and found the same issues with gaping, but for me it was at the neck and back. I would suggest going with a smaller size and adding in the bust area, plus you can take up the front by redrawing it a little higher. I agree also that the elastic gathering is skimpy so I extended that, too. However, for me it's a go-to shirt in summer but you really have to tweak the fit.
