The jury is still out on this top. I still have to put the zipper in and hem it. BUT I tried it on, and I'm not so sure I like the look of it on me. Those are the perils of sewing for yourself!! That is why I much prefer sewing for Caitlin and others. In the store you can try on a million things, then toss them back on the shelf if you don't like it. When you make something for yourself, you spend the time and money, in the hopes that your vision will become real when you try it on. When I did a fit on this, I feel that it poofs out in front and back, not the most flattering. I still haven't pressed it all down yet,so that may make a difference. I have this terrible urge not to finish it though,but then I will feel bad that I didn't complete it. I'll give you an update on what I decide. Everyone really seems to like the chair in my sewing room, I thought I'd reveal that I got it at good old IKEA. I think it is a newer item.
