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

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!

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.

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

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.

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!
