Love your top. You look cute & sexy! Thanks for the all the details in your very helpful review. Lengthen it and you have a pretty dress or swimsuit cover up.

I finally got around to reading this review and all I can think is that you are a threat to pattern companies the world over. No pattern, no directions, and just look at your results: fantastic!

Very clever! The top fits the bill and looks good, too.

Great idea to add the clear elastic to the upper edge for security. This is very cute. Have a great time on the trip!

Who needs a pattern? This is so "Leslie." Have a great time on your trip.

Always good to hear about successful experiments. At the rate you're going, you'll need extra luggage to transport your vacation wardrobe.

So cute! I made my daughter a few halter tops (ie with neck ties since she's only 9) using this same technique and she loved them during the summer.

Very creative! I bet it looks great on you. I think you need to stay an extra week to wear all these great new clothes.
