2 AM! You have to get some sleep. Great top. I really like that style. It might not be a perfect fit for you, but it is certainly wearable. I am probably going to have to pick up this pattern!

Lovely top! What is IBTC? I realise I'm probably the only person left in the world who doesn't know, but I just had to ask. Thanks for the review and all the detail, I really like the pattern and I intend to make it.

It is a cute top and being a member of the club (sewsue, that would be the itty bitty t____ club), I'll need to hunt this pattern down.

I'm so glad you reviewed this one. I bought the pattern for my daughter, but after seeing your version, I think I can use it for myself, too. And thanks for the warning about the fit; I'll definitely measure before cutting. The fit might not be exactly what you wanted, but it is certainly wearable and provides plenty of inspiration for all of us. I noticed when I read the back of the pattern, that this one is drafted with negative ease; I think the 'pulls" that you are complaining about were inevitable because of the snug fit NL was aiming for. Think of the snug knit shirts in RTW - they PULL and wrinkle - but still the public buys them. You are right in style. Thanks for the review.

Great top! And as a B- cup size (or A+?), it's great to see a modestly cut crossover! Thanks for the review!

I really like your T. The color combo is great. The higher cross-over is very flattering, and you don't have to worry about 'gap-osis'.

Cute, cute cute! It looks really good on you. I'd love to see your next version, and hopefully you can get those fitting issues resolved. I may have to try this one :o)

Thanks for a helpful review - I think I might get this one as I'm always on the lookout for a good Tshirt pattern. I like the look of the other styles in the pattern too.

Hey, I really like it! Good job. I'm thinking this could have an advantage for larger cup sizes, since the wrap wouldn't cut across the full part of the bust the way they normally do. Anyway, nice top, and I hope you at least got a nap in later.

Very cute top! jlg, I always heard it was the itty bitty t*tty committee! Alliteration, you know. No, I was never a member, so I may be wrong.

I like your top very much. I like the crossover above bust. I think it would work for full busted as well as smaller, no gaping at actual bust level. Thanks for the review. Like the contrasting band with this.

Aww, thanks everyone for the kind words! Just to clarify--this is perhaps even more of a mock-wrap than a mock-wrap. There is no overlap in fabric, so absolutely NO possibility of gaping, no matter how well-endowed you are (unless you regularly spill out of t-shirts). It's not a T with trim stitched on, it's a T with trim stitched into a seam.

Your photo is a great advertisement for this pattern--I can see from your review that you are very particular, but it looks beautiful on.
