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?

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.

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!

Lovely, especially paired with your beautiful coloring.

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!

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

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. :)

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.

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

Very pretty on you!

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!

Very pretty on you. Lovely color.

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.
