I bought this pattern today after reading your review and seeing what an artistic top you made with it.

Love the collar and the colours. It really suits you. I had been put off this top as it said fitted. Might be worth another look.

I love the collar too on this pattern and yours is great along with the fabrics for, as you say, a whimsical and fun top!
