lcdrbetty; I like the bust area snug. As a matter of fact, IMHO looking at the pic I look a lot more hefty in the torso than I am in real life because it's not snug under the bust too...the back view shows this. Sue

Very nice! Love the color...I'm currently working on view C in a dark heathered grey (not sure what kind of knit). Still have to sew the side seams and hem. Not yet sure if I like how snug the bust area is. Did you find this a problem?

Nice top. Good idea to lower the neckline. Very flattering.

What a pretty top, and it makes for a GREAT outfit with your leggings and necklace. I really like the lowered neckline -- more flattering and jewelry friendly, too. :o)
