Love your version of this top, I wear the one I made a lot. I stitched down the shoulder pleats too. Can't have enough reviews on patterns always interesting to see other versions, thanks for posting :)

I am making another of these right now. You are so right about the major intersection in the front. You can't hide any errors with a solid CDC. Your careful work has produced an elegant and timeless top.

What a very pretty top on you in that gorgeous silk crepe de chine. Your good control of the delicate fabric and many detailed steps gave beautiful results. It is obvious that you enjoyed the process!

Your silk top is beautiful! I totally agree with you on the hand-basting for fussy fabrics. It seems to make all the difference to the quality of the finish and I find it ends up being quicker in the long run.

This is such a hit-or-miss pattern depending on fabric choice. Your periwinkle silk is just perfect and very beautiful!

What a stunning result - you can tell the time you spend doing it by the beautiful seammatching. Your tip regarding changing the order is gold and I will use it next time I make this top. Again.

Yours is a fantastic make of this simple looking, but difficult make well, pattern. The fussy fabric was definitely worth it. The drape of the top is right on. Congratulations!

It's a beautiful top, and thank you so much for the tips about matching the seams and controlling fullness at the shoulders.
