This is a top I made last month, love it! I will definitely use this one again, possibly colour blocks.

Looks really good. I like the Tilton sisters' patterns although sometimes I feel they are selling me the same shirt over and over just tweaked a bit! But I do find that my favourite ever patterms - the ones I use time and again - are all Tiltons.

Thanks Tamnymore, I am pleased with it. I agree - a lot of Tilton patterns are similar but good for all that.

i`ve just bought the pattern in the SewDirect sale.  Is there anything I need to watch out for?  How is it for size?  I know it is loose fitting but I wouldn`t want it to be enormous

That's lovely.  I was wondering why I haven't got that pattern, then realised it's because the front is too flat to accommodate my bulges  :|  Maybe I could make two backs...

Thanks both! I believe it's fine for size. I would say that the shoulder seam is a bit low and could be lifted a bit. One thing I will do different next time I make it is to not do the split in the back seam.  Looking forward to seeing your version.
