Your top is beautiful, I wish I had that issue! I have been wanting to make a top like that. Thanks for the great review!

Looks fantastic! Great colour for you too, much better than beige.

Wow, you look amazing! It shows off you fit physique wonderfully. It's astonishing too that this pattern was easy to sew. Looks so complicated. Is poly lycra hot in long sleeves?

Hello Mel,I guess the sleeves would be tight for some folks. The whole design is very neat, with the possible exception of the "armhole" which of course is part of the yoke and body. Would the sleeve be difficult to alter a bit? I really don't know - I'm a novice at alterations. Thanks folks for the nice comments!

I'm going to make this one too, so thanks for a very timely review! I personally like your version better than the one in the magazine - looks fantastic on you.

This top looks great on you. Thanks for reviewing it. When I saw the design in the magazine I was wondering how this would turn out. Now I know. Great job.

I just got my copy of this a couple of days ago & am planning to make it sometime. Yours looks great - really stylish & shows off your fit physique. You're right about the split, it does still look low. Do you think the sleeves are very narrow? I was wondering if they'd be too tight on me.

Very nice. I seriously considered making this when I saw it. Yours turned out great.

Oziroo, the extra fullness you mention in the yoke does not show up in the picture. I think you've got a great fit already with the tweaking you've done. And I agree that the front slit was too long, at least it would be for me. I guess it all depends on how much you want to show. You made need to shorten it further as I think I see a touch of white (your bra I guess) peeking through. Otherwise. it's a perfectly fitted, flattering top.
