The Sewing Goddesses Knew ...

... that I was in no mood for a wadder. ;-)

I LOVE THIS TOP! It's done and I'll take pics & review it soon, but I just have to shout from the rooftops. Plus the Colts are beating the Patriots and I have to get back to the game to watch them finish the job.

In the meantime, here are a couple of pics showing some of the reasons I love this top. The gathering at center front is a great dart alternative, I'm always a sucker for empire lines, and the tie makes a great vertical line for my fluffy self. (You can click on the pics for bigger versions.)

As you can see, the tie actually comes up behind the neckline binding, and the gathering is adjustable so you can decide how low you want to go.


  1. Hi Debbie! I can't belive it! I put the same BWOF top together in a knit muslin. I love your version and can't wait to see the finished product...great fabric BTW.
    I've been meaning to PM you on PR with a question about this very pattern. How do you raise the neckline and not distort the front gathering? I may need to do a small FBA too.
    TIA O guru of pattern manipulation!

  2. That tops so cute... pictures, pictures!

  3. Debbie, you are so fast. The top is beautiful, love the fabric.

  4. Very cute! I like the fabric too!

  5. How cute is that! I can't wait to see it finished. It looks like a very flattering top for us busty fluffy girls.


Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
