It really lies flat around the neckline and armholes. You did a good job. I wish you would make a tutorial on your methods.

Ooh I like that fabric - and it doesn't look too tight to me!? But I like close fitting clothes.

I love your top! The princess lines are such a nice touch and very flattering!

Very nice top. I was looking at this pattern just last night and I'm so glad you reviewed it. This style looks great on you.

What a nice style--it looks great on, although it might need to be a bit larger, as you say! I've used your neck binding method--makes for a finished look on both front and back sides. The princess seams make this a winner.

I have this pattern out on my cutting table. Glad to read your review. I think it will be helpful particularly with bust area. I seem to fall between medium and large with most patterns and perhaps larger is easier to fit than too small. Love your fabric.

Gosh, thanks, everyone. I know I will use this pattern again. You're right, AnneM, it will be a nice shell for under a jacket.

I really like the design of this top (except I don't wear sleevless tops much). I think it looks fine with the snug fit, particularly for wearing under a jacket.

I like it too! What a pretty top.... I would think this one would be attractive to the eye of the younger set as well! Thanks for the review.

Patti, this top looks fabulous on you. I love the fabric you chose, and I love the princess seams. Thanks for this review, I'll be adding this one to my wish list.

That is an extremely cute top -- that front seaming is wonderful.

This top looks super on you. I love the fabric too.

Very cute top, Patti! I have this same fabric, and it's great to see what it looks like in 3 dimensions instead of lying in my stash!

In spite of the fact you find it too tight, it looks pretty good. I just ordered this pattern yesterday (along with the fajita skirt). Your review is quite helpful.

How gorgeous. I think the very fitted style looks great on you.

Yes, very attractive neckline. I am really intrigued by the princess seams in a knit top. Love the fabric!
