Your top is really great as it ended up. Often I spend as much time customizing my patterns as it took to sew in the first place, so I know just how it was for this one. Really helpful to see the before- and after- photos and to learn how you "made it work!"

I made a top this summer with the same overall shape. VERY unflattering for me as well.

I love the fabric on your top - doesn't look as bad as you think - the alterations seem to work fine.

Thank you for showing how to make this top flattering after trying the pattern without altering the wide hipline. It is lovely now!

I am with you on wanting to sew a sweater! Yours is way more flattering than the original, but thanks for pointing out this pattern because the cowl is really pretty and looks like it was worth altering all things big and boxy.

Cute and love the fabric! I like the remade version on you, perfect fit and flattering. I laugh when you say "pear" shape, you look anything other than like a pear ;-)

I have to agree, you look anything other than a pear shape. :) However, after seeing the before and after, I love the alterations that you did. You have a great eye for what flatters your figure and you did an excellent job, your fabric choice/color is awesome! I may have to try your version because I'm looking for sweater varieties right now and that will work for me!

I love sweater knits, too. Your top looks great and your changes made all the difference.

Thanks for the review...this one is in my stash and I am a pear so maybe I need to rethink! Your final top looks great!

Love the fabric you chose for this. The changes you made look great on your body, although I also like the original look. Nice top!
