Another pattern tried - Vogue 8420

For starters, the jersey fabric I used was fairly heavy for this pattern and the blousing on the waistline needs to be long. For a short person like me, that's a hard thing to do so next time I'll make this with a very fine jersey or knit netting- if at all.
The front of the top has a facing and that added more weight to the top.
The other thing that I was disappointed with was the side view was an embarrasing sight as the elastic is only in the front.
If I make this again, I'll use very lightweight knit with no facing, raise up the neckline, bring the neckline in on the sides, use shirring elastic around the waist and lengthen the blouse.

Maria, it does look very low in the neckline and there is an awful lot of fabric in the front, will be interesting to see if you make it in a light fabric.

Maria, Thanks for the review on this top. I plan to make it sometime this fall. Sorry you're not completely happy with this version, but from what I can see you did a very good job of together it together. Looking forward to hearing about your next version.
Happy Sewing!
