The final top, in a satiny fabric, non-stretch, which I'm not sure if I like yet. I'm waiting for it to get a little warmer before going sleeveless.

The "practice" top, in a knit, which I like better than the final. This one was a smaller size and didn't need a zipper. If you decide to make this I'd definitely recommend a stretch fabric instead of a rigid one.

The first pic of each is modeled by my stunt double, yet to be named.

The cover of the pattern I used, though not this size.

ETA: Modifications: I moved the straps closer together in the back to keep them from sliding off my shoulders. I may have shortened them slightly, too. I also added about an inch to the bottom of the cups to give me more coverage.

Hey, wow! I had seen this pattern before and thought it looked cute, but I always wonder what it would look like for real. Smiley Now that I know it'll work, I'll have to try it (if I ever get some more sewing skills, that is...).

Great job!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

Very pretty!  The flowery one would be great for a date or going out to dinner and the stretch could be worked out to do those OR just run around on a hot summer day in Smiley  Gotta looove stretchy clothes when it's hot!

 Smiley Very nice -- I have looked at the pattern a few times and wondered about it since I have an all hip shape.  That & I do not have the arms for it.  I like the test one better myself.

Ok, so I am the crazy cat lady.  Live with it.

They are both great!!  I have that pattern too, but I haven't used it yet.  I can't decide if I want to show my arms now or until I make my goa weight.  Great job! Smiley
