Really pretty top! And the color is lovely, too.

Thanks for the review and tips on sizing/ease with this pattern. With your adjustments it is such a lovely top, beautifully sewn and a great colour.

You can tell that you have sewn this top so nicely. Maybe it might shrink a tad the more you wear it. It still looks very nice right now, as it is!

Lovely top and the colour really looks good on you. Can see what you mean about the sizing.

Lovely top and the colour really brings out your eyes. Shame about the sizing through the chest - however it still looks like a good addition to the wardrobe.

Great basic tee...the color looks beautiful with your eyes!

It looks good Marg, however I think with 10% lycra, this may have contributed to the 'bigness' LOL. Although I suspect you're not really a 12. :)

Love your top, and really like the colour. Brings back happy memories.

Nobody will notice that the top may be a bit too wide through the chest: the color corresponds so well with your eyes, just perfect!

Lovely, especially paired with your beautiful coloring.

Great looking top. Although it's a little large, I still think it looks good on you. The color is beautiful--- and of course, it matches your eyes!

You look great in your top - lovely color!! I had this same sizing problem in a McCall's pattern designed very similarly. I finally got it to fit but it wasn't easy.

I'm late to this ...but the top and colour look great on you...as does your short 'do'! Tres chic!

Great top - looks really comfortable but stylish.

I've made this top and don't remember that it was too big. I'm now getting ready to make it for my sister and wonder what size will work. Do you always use a size 12 in the big 4? I love this top on you, as everyone has said, it is YOUR color and the crossover neckline so flattering. You aren't going to make it again? Really?
