Julia - Thanks! I have really enjoyed wearing this top. Have plans (and fabric) for another one. Good luck with yours.

Wow! I love this shirt on you. I have this pattern and will launch into it with a ho-hum boring white cotton lycra. : ) I am loosing too and you are my inspiration! Gorgeous fabric too! Thank you for sharing both of your successes!

Thank you for all the nice comments! Nice way to start the morning! The buttermilk knit is really easy to sew and comfortable to wear.

Peggy, you and your top are way cute! And you're right, we do have the same body type. Now to get rid of my extra weight......again!

Peggy, I wanted to see your new top and your fab new figure, but when I clicked on the photo, all I got was an empty page titled Peggy Lionberger's Photos.

I don't think my problems were the pattern's fault - just a poor style choice for my body!! I am glad I didn't use my good knit from Christine Jonson. My daughter likes this pattern so I will certainly use it again. That's one of the things I like about KS. Some of the patterns I can use for the DDs and myself.

Maria - My local independent store offers all their patterns at a 25% discount (Stretch and Sew is another one you might want to purchase from them) They have an 800 number you can call to place your order, and their website is

You can get a slight discount on Kwiksew at when you buy multiple ones; I have not made any purchases from this website. My "local" store (not very local) will also sometimes have sales.

Peggy, I am sorry this pattern didn't sweep you off your feet. I hope if you do some tweaking to it, you will let us know what works.

I think it depends on the fabric. I have stitched the lap-over part closed on one of mine to keep from showing the world my bra and it's contents! I don't like to fuss and worry over a garment once I put it on so that was an easy solution for me.

Sherril - reading some of your comments on other reviews we must be the same body type!! I think next time I make this it will be for the DD.

I think this pattern looks good too, but I think I would have the same problem as you, I've been wondering how come, We who have so much to show to the world want to keep it in hiding and those who have nothing to show flaunt it all the time?My daughter would definetly laugh at me too.:-)x100

I didn't find this top to be too flattering on my body either. I have tried both views and had to put a stitch at the intersection of the wrap to keep my modesty! I think I need to enlarge the bust, but I wasn't quite sure how without adding a dart. Both are wearable, and I do on occassion, but not when I want to look my best.
