You got a great fit but it sounds like you had to do some major pattern alterations!

Great top! I'm surprised how much width you had to remove.

Jan -- yes, it's a lot of width! I was starting to wonder if this pattern might even work for wovens, but since the sleeves are more fitted than the rest, probably not (without adjustment and/or cutting some parts on the bias, anyway... hmm.)

Interesting..I've looked at this pattern..I do like your version. That is a lot of width to remove from a pattern supposedly in your size! Great review as usual.
