Sherril, I just had surgery and look like hell, so I'm not taking pictures for a while:)

Towanda, I was wondering about that front seam but I couldn't remember if mine had one or not. I'm glad you didn't have any problems with the back fit. I still don't have that problem solved with this pattern. Your top is very cute! I'd love to see you wearing it with a smile, though.

Thanks for the compliments. By the way, the top does not have a front seam. When I was modeling the top for DH, I discovered that I had nicked the top. When I tried to fix it, the fabric ran. So I ended up with a front seam to hid the nick.

Your top came out really nicely. Love the fabric.

Thanks for a great review. I'm going to have to try this look, and your suggestions are really helpful.

I love your fabric. Nice to know this top works for plus sizes - I might consider this one.

Very pretty! I also made this and also found that it ran really small, so I had to increase a bit. I must have stretched out my neckline as it is unflatteringly wide, and yours if perfect. I love your fit and version. It is a really flattering top.
