Thanks for the great review and the help with pattern problems. I wish she would just sew these up herself so she could find the mistakes before we do. Your top is lovely.

Thanks for this very helpful review! Cute top, but I'm not sure I want to deal with the errors and alterations needed. I have to do enough of those normally......

The experience sounds a little frustrating - the outcome looks lovely!

This looks really nice on you! I purchased two patterns from HP in the early fall, and was so disappointed with the first that I haven't even opened this one. Your review and modifications give me a little hope that I could actually like this one once made.

I just purchased this pattern and two others from Hot Patterns during their recent sale. It looks like I'll have to make adjustments too, since I'm barely an A on top. Thanks for the very helpful review. :) And your top looks great! All that extra effort was worth it!

Great top! Thanks for the review. I've not sewn a Hot Pattern yet.

Lovely top!! And thanks for confirming that the front is indeed longer than the I know for sure it wasn't my mistake. :)

Another great version of this top! And you're right about the ruching--with my huge bust, I only needed a minor "cheater" FBA on this one.

I've made one Hot Patterns top (woven) and have another, but the first has discouraged me from tackling the second. You have encouraged me to try this one instead. The top looks great and it is a great review.

You did a great job. The top looks lovely on you and I admire the way that you worked through the bugs in the pattern

This is so pretty on you-the color, fit and print are all perfectly flattering.

The top looks great on you. It's not a style that would work for me but your review will make every large-busted woman want to run out for this pattern.

It looks terrific on you. Great pic, too. But then, you're very accomplished -- and persistent -- at overcoming problems. After one hotpattern attempt, I'm done. I don't have your level of skill and patience to resolve sizing issues and pattern errors!

Cute summer top, looks great on you. How strange about the errors.

Very very (did I say "very"?) cute top.

Great top, colour soooo suits you. Good review.

I've had my eye on this pattern for quite a while but have hesitated because I don't have the "frontage" required to fill. Thanks for the helpful review!

What a pretty top, and you look so pretty wearing it! Thanks so much for the tips on fitting this pattern.

What a pretty fabric and it looks so good on you! Sounds like they need a proof reader who sews...
