Sue, I like your top on you. When I've seen these little cap sleeves, I've always avoided them, but I think that they look good on you. Before I read the review, I thought I'll have to try those sleeves. It's funny that you're not sure about them. Very helpful review.

Very cute top, Sue! I'll dig around for my S&S book ... I know it's in there somewhere. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks, Doc, for a very thorough review. Top looks great on you, BTW.

Very cute top -- I rather like the sleeves on you. I have the Ann Person book you referenced so I looked up the technique. I can see why you need illustrations to do it. Your neckline turned out great -- do you think the lapped V would work on the Jalie tee?

I think this top looks great on you! The small cap-sleeves look good on you, on me they would be comical! I do like the lapped v-neck finish -- I made it from S&S instructions back when S&S was really hot/new stuff! Thanks for the review. I'm sure you're going to get a lot of mileage out of this pattern!

Irina: You could surely do the lapped band on the Jaile tee. It would probably be a bit less deep of a V, unless you took off some of the neckline seam allowance.

Nice T-shirt. I think I have those instructions in a magazine somewhere. Now to find it.

Sue, it looks great. The fit looks wonderful, and I know that's something you aren't always happy with. KEEP THIS PATTERN!

drsue, top looks super good and the sleeves look great on you..just the right balance. Thanks for your easy,detailed instructions on doing the lapped V neck..I always struggle a little with that.

Your top is such a great color and style for you, Sue! Thanks for the informative review and the added information on the neckline. Great, now that I have not gone to a fabric store for awhile, I want to get this pattern too!

Top fits nicely and the small sleeves look trendy on you. This pattern is interesting, but I am warned about the instructions!

drsue, I took a look at the photo before I opened the review and my very first thoughts were 'what nice cap sleeves.'

Very nice! Your neckline looks great. Thanks for the reminder to refer back to my old but trusty "Stretch and Sew Guide to Knits" book by Ann Person. That is an excellent book.

That t-shirt looks fantastic on you! The color and the shape of the v are very flattering.
