Thank you 1SewSweet I'm working on perfecting this top now. It's nice to know I'm not alone :)

I agree that your fabric selection is great! However I made this pattern with the exact same result and was so broken hearted, I put it down and never touched it again! I'm glad you're thinking about correcting your's, don't let this beautiful fabric go to waist...I wouldn't if I had a second chance! Good luck!

I agree with Quickie. If you do what she says you will have a winner.

I love this type of brainstorming. I am myself breeding on a summertop that is also Brown with white dots.... But that s sleeveless and it is mesh.

Thanks everyone. I woke up this morning with the same idea Quickie :) I'll keep working on it and update the picture when I make more adjustments to the collar an hem.

I was waiting for your daughter to take a study break! I think it looks very very snuggly-wintery which is possibly not the look you were after? I think Quickie is a very smart woman. On the pattern picture there seem to be more gathers/pleats. Maybe if you pull the wrap part in, so that it stops above your bicep, you will feel less overwhelmed in it. I think you are on to a winner!

I saw your pic and had the feeling that it was topheavy,and had the feeling that it would have possibilities with a less wide collar. I Personally think that it should end above the bustline. As is it looks like a sewn-on wrap. But another possibility could be to have more gathers . If you pin some pleats you may see if that works for you.Making the hip- part the way you want it, will be an easy fix . So.... In the end I see still possibilities to come to something nice. Good that you showed the pic

Thanks Quickie! I still like the top. Just not sure what adjustments I want to make to make it perfect for me. It didn't turn out the way I had envisioned. It's just too big.

Seeing the pattern sketch I would think that this is a cute style. Now you are not sure.....that is sad. Il recently saw how you can work on achieving the result you want. .... And I hope to see it than on your body....

Sounds like the perfect top! I like the mini-dot print.
