Thanks for the review. I have this pattern but haven't made it up yet. Yours is very cute and the tips are helpful!

I can't get the photo to enlarge, but the top looks pretty. I wonder if perhaps you could take a smaller seam under the bust and thereby extend the bodice a bit so it would be correctly placed. Well, it sounds like you did get a solution to work for you by removing the elastic. And taking stitches out of a knit is tricky business. One of the problems with these knits is each one stretches in its own way so you have to play around with that a bit. It is a pretty top and the pattern looks like a good one!
