Sherril, you wanted to see full body shots so this was the best I could do. :) .......................................... Melissa, I had trouble keeping the elastic stretched out while trying to keep it even with my marking.The fabric is fairly light weight and I didn't want to pin it because I was afraid it would rip.

Alice, Nice dress! It looks like it fits well. What kind of problem(s) did you have with the elastic? How did you try to put it on? I've got my dress cut out and the elastic is waiting to be applied. TIA!

Alice, I like this dress very much, but what have you done to your face--you look as white as a ghost! LOL

I think it looks great. You might get the look of more waist definition if you shorten it a bit. It won't go in any more, but when a top hits you just below the waist, you get the look of waist definition.

Alice: from what I can see this new top fits great through the shoulders and bust. The waistline area looks like it is just skimming your figure and I like that. It's really hard to tell what exactly is going on there. All in all the fabric is great and it looks like a great fit, too.

Thanks for the review. It' nice to see a different version and I think it looks very comfortable. Fits you well.

Mary Beth, it's low but some of us have very little cleavage so it's not apparent. The armholes look small in the photo but really they're not tight at all.

I like the neck and shoulder shaping, very flattering!

Really like this top on you - and PLEASE share the tank dress with us - I think it looks interesting.

Thanks for the review! I agree about the photos looking nothing like the what the camera sees-I think for me I'm pleasantly deluded, and then I see the picture :oO its quite an eye opener :p You look good in your top-hope you review the tank dress when you get around to making it!

Thanks for showing your version of the pattern, Alice. Your view E doesn't seem at all too low but also the armholes are very high. Someday I'll get to make this pattern up, I hope so I can end the Yes/No mystery of the pattern for myself!
