I really like your modification of the pattern - very clever! Actually, the Marfy patterns aren't that far off in size from the stated measurements. The Marfy size chart states that size 44 is for a 96cm bust (92 cm is size 44). So your measurement of 99cm is only 3 cm off, which translates to a bit over an inch. :)

Lovely top! The yellow is great and the fagotting is such a nice touch. I might have to keep that detail in mind.

Very pretty top and the fagotted centre seam is perfect, thank you for the inspiration.

Very Nice! What embroidery thread and how many strands did you use to do the faggoting?

Super Cute! You certainly have a TNT pattern, the neckline looks fabulous and your details are impeccable.

Your fagotting is beautiful and so is the neckline on your top! Thank you for the recommendations on Marfy patterns - I have never given them a try but just might have to.

This is so lovely, and the fagotting is so impressive.

Fabulous work. Love the faggoting. I was taught this on an on line PR course and love the look.

A beautiful top. The centre fagotted seam is very impressive and a lovely couture detail, especially with the two side pleats.

Lovely top and beautiful stitching! I too have a goal of trying a Marfy someday, but I have to strengthen my skills a bit first. I'm looking forward to the challenge!

It's a beautiful top! I so admire your sewing skills, and I hope one day to be confident enough to try a Marfy pattern myself. I remember that beautiful green silk top.
