As I said - another lesson learnt - the hard way.
I considered this pattern a TNT as I used my old favourite crossover top as a guide to adjusting the pattern. I made a successful top which I love wearing.
I confidently cut out my next top and sewed it.
Very happy with the sewing. The top turned out very nice indeed - BUT TOO SMALL!!!
Cross over neckline actually sits correctly on person
Why the issue this time - I asked myself. I had already sewn one and it fit. Not only is this one TIGHT but the bust too high and the top itself too short for me and my stomach.
