Thanks for the comments. Sewing for fun, in answer to your question I used my high bust measurement to choose the pattern size to sew. I choose the "D" cup pattern pieces based on the difference between my high and full bust - which the pattern instructions do explain.

I love the more stable knit that you used for this. In fact, I much prefer it to something drapier.

Nice top. I like the look of the collar, too. Not snug fitting like a turtle neck that might be too tight. Great job.

Oooh, I really like this. I've been looking for a knit tunic that doesn't have raglan sleeves, and a cowl that leaves your upper chest exposed to the icy blasts. Fabulous looking knit.

The top looks so pretty and snuggly warm. Excellent fabric choice and much nicer than the pattern envelope drawing. Did you go by high bust or full bust measurement when selecting your size?

Very nice! Your choice of fabric is wonderful. Love it! I definitely have to make this top.

Love your tunic! This is exactly what I've been looking for: a nicely shaped longer top. I also prefer the stand-up collar in front to the cowel, for both warmth and style reasons.

A warm and cuddly-looking top. You should enjoy wearing it.
