Thank you for a thorough review. I have this pattern in my stash and I do want to make the top. Your top has a very good fit.

Your review is very helpful with all the details you've posted. I have this pattern and have hoped to make a top or two from it.

Great top. This pattern looks like it will get a lot of milage from a TNT top to the other wardrobe options.

Thanks so much for the nice comments! Belinda, I have just bought some knit fusible tape a month ago, I put it down to holidays and chaos of kids at home that I forgot to try using it! What was I thinking? Next time...

Now that is what I call one GREAT-FITTING top, and your review is EXCELLENT. :o) You know, I have this pattern, but I hadn't even NOTICED the top until I saw yours -- ha! VERY NICE!

Thanks for the detailed review. Your top still looks great on you. The color is also very nice.

Absolutely beautiful top and wonderful color. Great fit, too, especially nice shoulder fit and love the way it skims the mid-section without excess fabric there :) Definitely a keeper. Suggestion for your hems - I've found an excellent solution to prevent ripple-ey hems on knits. I fuse hem at stitch line prior to sewing with LJ Designs ultra soft double-sided fusible web (or Emma Seabrooke's tape). See Emma Seabrooke has several tape products that will also work great - No commercial attachment to either, just use the products with excellent success. Love your top - now I must make it (or at LEAST get the pattern for my stash)!

Extraordinarily helpful review. Love the color on you and the neckline looks perfect. Very flattering.
