i'm learning to sew Smiley three dresses made already, and this is my first top. i'm going to make another from the pattern. it's not super duper flattering, but i feel like an artiste when i wear it.



for my comments on fit, etc see the blog please.

also, the whole thing is a bit gapey around the neckline. does that mean it's a size too big? i can't work out what is wrong witht he fit to make the neckline gape?

Looks good to me!  I wish I could wear that style, it is so adorable.  But with my gut I'm afraid people would ask when the baby's due.  I think you did a fabulous job!

I love it! You're skinny enough to work that fabric, and the red accents are perfect.

Wonderful job.  The neckline gapes because it is on the bias and maybe you haven't stayed it with stay tape

I think it's really pretty and flattering. I like the print with the red ribbon combination.
