This is the cutest top ever. I've made the version with the sleeve ruffle but I intend to make it again as well as the other views. I think it's important to interface the neck; it feels very well-made and supportive. I used Sewer's Dream (knit tricot.)
For those of you with a forward head/forward shoulders, like me, the neck slit is easily rotated by taking a tuck in the upper front and inserting an equivalent amount in the upper back. I needed 1 1/2" on each side. Doing this ensured the sleeve fit didn't change. And it hangs well on me, poor posture and all.
Don't avoid the slit neck. It's a very different look as compared with a boat neck. And distinctive. That, along with the gathered sleeves, put this top out of the ordinary.
I found the fit to be great; I used a stretchy cotton/lycra jersey and didn't need my usual FBA.
