this is a really nice top - you now have us all wanting to know how you did the lining :-)

So nice! I love the pattern elements and your choice of blue linen to make this up.

I really like the lines of this shirt on you, and it looks like it worked out very well in your stretch linen. (Yay for leaving out zippers!) I wonder if the back darts could be lengthened (while not widened) to end an inch or so below your shoulder blades? My shoulder blades are my back's 'pointy parts,' such as they are. (You could probably make that change in the finished garment -- oh, except I forgot there's a lining.) Anyway, I thought that was where back darts were usually designed to end.

The whole outfit looks so nice on you perfect for summer.

Your version of this pattern came out great. I should have lengthened the bodice like you did. The draft of the darts is pretty doggone weird, especially in the back - do we have breasts on our backs????

Very nice fabric and nice lines in this top. And, well, of course you had to add just a smidge of topstitching because it made the top absolutley fabuloso! Lovely!
