I really wanted to like this top. I was excited to make it after reading several favourable reviews on Pattern Review, but I have been bitterly disappointed.

To be fair, I can’t really blame the pattern. I think it was a combination of factors that led to this disaster.
|And I really didn’t like the look or the feel of that high neckline. Not flattering at all.|
|This is a more flattering neckline|
Even less flattering is the back length as my 18 yr old son delicately informed me as I sat hunched over the sewing machine (while wearing the top), that I was revealing plumber’s crack.

Here are some close up shots of the details:

Well, despite all this negativity, I haven’t given up on this pattern yet. I have plans for another version…larger size, nicer fabric and I have plans to lower that neckline and lengthen the top.
Stay tuned for the sequel.
