Good idea for lowering the horizontal seam in front--many have mentioned it sits too high. I like the borrowed cowl treatment, too. Pam is something else with all those cool ideas for handling cowls. Glad to see you put one of her excellent tutorials to good use.

What a pretty top! Thanks for the detailed review. Your changes paid off because it looks wonderful on you. Looks to me like it is a VERY wearable muslin.

I think you nailed it. Looking forward to seeing future versions. I thought that was Pam's cowl treatment. Genius!

Your finished top looks great; very flattering fit. I've been looking for a top with a cowl neckline and, thanks to your review, I'll keep this one in mind.

I wasn't interested in this pattern at first, but I LOVE your version! What a great job..a definitely more than wearable muslin..that color is so good on you!

Great top! Very nice changes... the front seam looks like it worked well and so did the extra detail on the cowl. Have fun with the next version(s)!

Nice RTW muslin. Thanks for the review. This is my first time noticing this pattern. I will give it a try.

This is adorable on you and what a perfect color for your complexion. I really like the tab on the cowl for something different. Very cute!

Wow, Mary. So gorgeous on you! I've been wanting to try Pam's technique too. It is the perfect touch on this pattern. OK, I have to go buy this pattern now!

Great top and such a lovely colour. I like the way you determined the empire line height - very innovative.

Love your top - the colour really suits you. Thank you for the tip on the cowl will try next time myself. Wish my muslins turn out as nice as yours.

Great tunic, love the colour, and how clever to work out where that horizontal seam should be. The knot is very clever.
