You know, maybe if you put a lace or some beading on the side bit at the waist, it would look intentional, rather than like you ran out of fabric. Or stitching? I've seen a Burda top with a side piece anchoring ruching. It had stitching. It looks wonderful, and you look wonderful in it.

Looks fab! I'm getting ready to make this. Since it looks like we're about the same size, I was very happy to see how great your's turned out!

Isn't it funny how critical we are of our work? You did a beautiful job! I'm glad you like it :) I do too

I think your top would have been liked by th seamstress just as much as we all like it here! It's really very nice!

Glad you finally decided you like it because it really is very pretty with the lovely textured knit and prefect fit. I think Bernadette would agree!

Bernadette IS impressed with your cooking, Amazing kitchen and how GORGEOUS you are in real life not to mention DH who is charming, caring and fun. Believe me I had my reservations about wearing my clothes that I made. You have heard the expression "you would look good in a paper bag" well your one of those people. I love love that Polyester Lycra knit, looks comfy yet stylish. Too bad you're 7" taller and younger and thousands of miles away I would snatch up this top in a minute ;)

This fits you so beautifully - it's a keeper. I do understand the front side bottom thing though, that actually prevented me from buying the pattern, but this looks so good I may have to get it and just alter this portion. Thanks for your review, it helps to have the insight.

I still think Bernadette would have been impressed with it. That fabric looks wonderful and the fit looks amazing on you.

I think it is a good style on you. Hope that next time you meet your friend, you will wear what you have made

It looks great on you. I really appreciate the honest review and your candid opinion of how you feel wearing it...I think that has so much to do with what we sew. I do like this top on you...
