Love your pose! :) The gathering on the front neckline really makes a difference! Fantastic look with the blue skirt :)

You have a knack for making everything look good! Also, I think it looks so much better with the short skirt!

Your top turned out great despite the issues that came up with it. It looks so nicely done - you worked wonders on that neckline!!!

This gauzy top is so light and breezy-looking. I feel your pain with the fit. UGH! I've made a few sleeveless garments this summer with those giant arm openings. Is it a trend?

Extremely helpful review and cute top. I bought this one but yikes, Vogue is crazy about the neck and arms. Thanks for your tips, it will come in very helpful in planning if I make this yet this summer.

Thank you for the warning on this pattern! You'd never know all the trouble you had with it, as the resulting top is very cute.

I actually like the gathered neckline better. Your top looks great for summer. Too bad about the low armhole.

Well, you certainly made a winner out of it. Very cute on you. I wouldn't have given this pattern a second look but you rock in it...VH review, too.
