Wow! Beautiful. And a pattern that will work for you and your daughter is worth its weight in gold.

COH, this really is a great looking top! I may have to go with this pattern. Are the edges of the neckline finished by folding over and topstitching or are there facings? Thanks for your review. Carla

Lovely! I like your fabric choice; it makes the perfect evening top. I'm wearing my top as I type :) and I agree about the gathers.

I love your fabric choice for this pattern. It is so elegant. I have this pattern in my stash and must dust it off.

Carla, you serge the edges and then topstitch. Initially, I used the stretch stitch on my sewing machine, but didn't like the look, so I just topstitched. I didn't think the twin needles would look good on the velvet.

This looks to be a really nice pattern; I like the style. And nice to know it hides a little stomach fluff.

Beautiful top. I can't believe you made it in a hour! And we still have "coming out" balls in Kansas City, too, so it's not just a Southern thing.

Smashingly beautiful top! I always thought of it as casual--but now I see you can really dress it up.

I love this in the stretch velvet! I made the other top (the shirred boat neck) a year and a half ago when the pattern first came out, but I must make this one in a brown stretch velvet after seeing your version!
