Beeyoutiful Colour! I agree with HRigg - maybe straighten the front hem - the back is so perfect. It seems like the princess seams as drafted (on others too) are too dead straight and might be better shaped a bit more in at waist? Or maybe that wouldn't work with the back!? A real puzzle top! Thanks for sharing :)

I just made this pattern without checking reviews first. Dumb mistake. I feel like your review is pretty much how I feel too. It looked cute on the envelope.

Thanks guys :) I am not giving up hope - there are details that I like. The color is amazing. Like, I almost ordered a few more yards of it from FM. And that back pleat is just CUTE. The last top I really hated was made in March, put away, pulled back out a few weeks ago and has made it's way into my wardrobe rotation. :)

Thank you for the review! Your top is very nice! I have this pattern and am now convinced that if I decide to make it I will have to change a few things! Love your fabric and the color!

Well, I think people seeing that top would not be as critical as you are. I think it looks really nice. It's a cute pattern but I've seen a couple of not very positive reviews so I don't think I will be adding it to my stash soon. Thanks for the review.

I think you are right on about the fabric being the problem because on the whole it's a very cute shirt on you. I am thinking a drapey rayon woven. VH review so thanks for that.

I really love it! The fabric has the sweetest shade of green, and the collar isn't bad at all. I would wear it!

This is beautiful fabric. I actually like the collar and the shape of the back is really nice. I think you are being very critical but wonder if you straightened the front hem you would like it more.

Sorry it didn't work out for you - the colour is so lovely. I have this pattern but not used yet - thanks for the helpful review!

That collar just gives me fits too. You do look great in it!

I too love the color of this fabric. Sorry it did not turn out well for you. I have had this pattern for awhile thinking I would make it this summer. So far have not and appreciate your review. Maybe a rayon challis would do well for this top.

I made it in a knit. It was okay, but looks much better on the pattern cover. That is a pretty color and it does seem to fit you.

Sorry that you are disappointed with your top. I've had this pattern for a while and keep putting it on the back burner. Thank you for your review.

I felt the same way about this pattern. The collar just didn't lay right.
