A lovely fit. I think I must try this top too.

You added a center back seam for a sway back adjustment...I added one so I could make the top from a smaller piece of fabric. Yours looks great!

Thanks for the review and the introduction to a new pattern line! You blouse is SO flattering on you! I went over to the website and saw the cutest little summer blouse w/ a peter pan collar,,,,,love the whole line! ( NOT what I need now, I promised myself to go on a pattern diet!)

What a cute and becoming top, Patti!

Pterion, you need two lengths of 45 inch fabric so you could measure and see what that would be for you. If it's 60 inch fabric, I think you can make it out of a bit less with creative folding. My CB seam made it take less fabric also.

How amazing that such a cute blouse pattern is free! Wow! This fits you wonderfully and looks great on you. I love your fabric choice!

Love this! I plan to jump on this wagon too. The pattern recommends 1.5 yds of fabric for a size 10 but that sounds generous to me - do you think I could squeak this out of a yard?

Debbi -- I almost missed this review. I'm with Lynnelle in not wishing to tape a free pattern together. But, like others, I'm willing to try it if there's a possibility for NO FBA and a nice, fresh look like yours. These kind of rtw tops never fit me.

Yours looks great! Love the polka-dots.

Absolutely wonderful tank! People laugh at me for saying it but I think a great shell if one of the best sewing efforts time and money wise one can make. Rtw has nothing nice like this for layering. With a billion patterns I need to go get tape and print out pages.

I vowed never to tape multiple pages together for a pattern again. Now you're making me reconsider. Very nice top!

This looks great on you, Patti, and, as you know, I love that fabric!

I recently made this top up too, and loved the fit too. Yours looks really nice on you.

Looks fabulous! I've d'loaded it too; it will be my next project when I need a quick fix :)

I had heard about this top but didn't download it. Now after your review, I will. Very cute top. Thanks for the review!

Very cute! I plan to make this soon.

This really is a fabulous version of the Sorbetto top. I already have mine printed out, but need to cut it out and get to it.

It's great how the choice of fabric can change the look completely.

What a crisp Sorbetto! I am printing it out today...
