Your top is beautiful - classical and elegant.

Love how all the seam lines come together in the front.

Really looks nice on you - very helpful review - may try this one for a nice loose summer top

It's a nice top, not too low I think. Sounds like it was challenging to sew that fabric though.

It's a nice top, and I don't find it too low on your picture. If the bra strap thing is a bother, you can try to sew in a loop with a snap on the insides of the shoulder seam to slide the straps in.

Looks wonderful! I really appreciate your comments on the seam finishes.

Nice in black, ur right the neckline is pretty low i had to wear a cami

I love it! I must make it and as you have mentioned, I will be raising the neckline a couple of inches. There's something about the way all those seams come together on the front, and all those angles, that I find both riveting and pleasing. Glad you sewed it so soon--that's 3 reviews of this top in 5 days!

It came out well and it looks good on, a winner! I do like the looks of the back and the length..too bad it covers the pockets..I think the neckline would be a problem for me, also.

thanks for an excellent review of both top and skirt. These are on my to-do list. I hope mine come out as well as yours did. Cheers, Helen
