Thanks for a great review of a pattern I am considering. I did think it was going to be too lowcut, so glad to know it is not.

Sue, a lovely top. I have hoped to make this pattern and your review has pushed me to "get it done" Thanks

Such a beautiful top! I like the ruffle detail.

I like the unhemmed ruffle, it looks good. I wasn't too sure about not hemming either, but it looks good and I think hemming would add bulk and take away from the top. Yes, I notified CJ Patterns of the error. Thanks! This really is a great pattern and nice top; I can see several of them in my future!

Great looking top. Do you nofity the pattern company that they have an error? This happened to me once and when I notified the pattern company they reported back that the error was fixed in later versions of the pattern.

Lovely top. The unhemmed ruffle looks fine in the picture, but how does it look up close? I have this pattern but am not totally comfortable with not hemming.

Nope, didn't attempt to match anything. I just made sure there wasn't a big flower on the center of the breast.

Really nice looking top -- and thanks for the heads-up about the error. Tell me, when you make a top like this, do you make an effort to match the print on the ruffle to the print on the bodice?
