The way that diagonal neckline sits close to you is like the world's greatest endorsement for your suggestion about taping the neck edge!

Great fabric combination! I just cut out this top, with a self fabric band for the neck-if it doesn't work, I'll try the bias tape. Thanks!

Love your top. Good job on sewing your stash. I think you deserve a dressform. (that way I won't have to crave cookies when reading your future reviews!;) Really like the fabric placement. Thanks for the tip on bias tape.

A smart top. Sewing up all your stash is quite an achievement. Now you can have the pleasure of accumulating another one.

Lovely top! I love the fabric--are the two different patterns from the border and center of the same fabric? Thanks for the tip about bias tape.

This top suits you well. It's a polished but casual top. Your review is great ~ thanks for the tip on the bias binding tape at the neck. No one enjoys gaposis.

Beautiful top! And what a perfect fit. Thanks for the neckline advice - I am always seeking new ways to reduce that neckline gapping problem on a full-busted figure.

I can see why you made this again. It's such a good look for you and your darker fabric around the waist is so flattering. The bias tape idea was a good one.
