I love what you've done with this. What a fun top.

It looks great! I love the adjustments you've made and especially the collar. My only gripe with this pattern is that pleat in the back peplum. It has never appealed to me at all, but so much of this top does. I might have to break down and get it to try. Thank you for the wonderful review.

Great review and I am so glad all your alterations have resulted in such a flattering and interesting top. I really did LOL as I read your review! The neckline detail is just gorgeous and thanks for all the extra construction info on your blog! The side by side photos are really interesting to see.

You look awesome! Such a difference between the first version and the second. I love what you did. Your blouse is a wonderful example of why we all sew. I doubt you could ever buy anything that fits as well or flatters as much as your skillfully made custom top.

oh, my heart raced when I saw you in this top! It looks wonderful-the neckline is just right , the drape is perfect, the pockets are perfectly slouchy, and the color...the color is *yours*.

I think this version looks even better than the original on the pattern envelope. Fantastic! I love your style, and this top really suits you.

Actually, I think this top is extremely flattering on you. I can imagine how hard it must be to do those alterations, but you have mastered the art and the fit is perfect. I love the collar, too. Great job. I really must make this top now.

All your hard work created an absolutely stunning top. The fit is perfect and the details are TDF. Fabulous work. Your reviews are always so well-written, and your sewing adventures so interesting that I never miss one. Love your blog, too :)

Amazing review. I am using this when I make the pattern. I am a secret fan and if you make the pattern, it goes on my list also.
