G'day Ashford, step 9 was the one I was thinking of. It needs something to stop the seam allowance from turning up/out and becoming visible where the split in the collar joins the shoulder seam. I ended up slip stitching the collar together for 3/4" along the collar

Good job on the fitting for a flattering look on you. Many thank you's for those pattern instruction tips. I will put them on a card in my pattern envelope. Collar -You recommend to understitch the seam. I am uncertain which seam. Step 6- Fold collar. Stitch ends. (Understitch seam allowance to the under collar.) -or- Step 9- Stitch collar to neck edge of top. Stitch again 1/4" away. Trim seam. (Since there is no facing, understitch seam allowance to collar or top?)

Cute tops on you! I was looking at this pattern in my stash the other day wondering why I bought it and now you've shown me!

Lovely tops treefrog! I especially like the charcoal top. You have pointed out some issues with the pattern which I ignored in my first try on this...I'll add in some sort of facing next time. Thanks for the very helpful tip!
