Well, okay, now I'm confused. Did you sew this top twice and line up the fabric design the same both times? How did you get the two different underbust/on top of bust seamlines--except by sewing this twice? (I know there's an easy answer and everyone is going to think I'm not too bright, but I have to ask this question.) Also, good job getting rid of the olive-colored leaves--it's like a whole different fabric without them. And you just know that Eve would have replaced her fig leaf with a large tropical flower anyway. A fig leaf is so . . . unimaginative. I think the eye would have been drawn to the super large flower, and for those of us who do not wish to be the center of this kind of attention, you made the right decision!!! Beautiful top. I await the answer to the seamline question, if you choose to respond!

G'day Renren, it is just the one top. The difference is in the second photo, I have pulled it down so the seam runs under rather than across the bust.

Great top!! I love the slimming and lengthening provided by the front panels. Miss the fig leaf though.
