My neckline was situated exactly as shown on the pattern photo. Haven't heard back from powerpuff re: the question I posted about her neckline placement. Maybe when she applied the bias binding she lined up the raw edge of the binding with the raw edge of the bodice neckline, rather than the seamline? Just a guess, unless perhaps she adjusted the neckline height due to personal preference.

Thanks for super helpful review and blog post. I agree with the others, it looks wonderful on the hangar. I may yet attempt this but will definitely tweak the length and perhaps sleeve length. Per your question on another review for this -- was the neckline as show on pattern, or higher up? Thanks again for a great review.

The top looks great on a hangar. Look on the bright side! You plunged in, learned stuff, and can now donate a pretty top that's just not right for you and make something else. PLUS, you got that 30-year languisher out of your stash! Carry on...

What a tale of woe. Your workmanship seems excellent, you certainly know what you are doing, so yep move on, donate and make something you love.

Your finished top is beautiful, workmanship is exquisite, I am so sorry it is not flattering. Your pictures and review are very helpful, thank you for sharing.
