Beautiful. I'd love to see the final garment with a rhinestone zipper.

What a gorgeous muslin! And a very helpful review - this bodice pattern is different and edgy - will be fun to try.

What fun. Thanks for the thoughtful review. If you can wear something like this you should - you will be unique.

Gorgeous top. It's a real achievement to put this together without any directions.

Great review of this intriguing pattern. Thanks for writing it. Nice looking top, I can see doing this as a formal top, but also, in cotton for casual summer wear, now that you've got it figured out ;)

For a muslin it certainly looks great. I can understand your wanting to make some thing simple next!

Wow! Some dress. Your wearable muslin looks great. I hope you wear it. Thanks for the detailed review.

Beautiful top, and I'm now inspired to try a Marfy pattern myself. I order a catalog a couple of months ago and have been drueling over them. Nice work!!

'Wearable muslin'??!

Your review makes me want to try it just for the fun of figuring it all out. I can't wait to see the final garment and the choice of fabric you decide to use.

I'm intrigued by the fact that a fitted garment with that much detail consists of a single pattern piece!

Really helpful review - I am amazed by 'home sewing' patterns that don't give instructions. The Europeans do things differently it seems. Your final product looks lovely - any chance of a photo with you in it? Always shows the true drape. Is there any chance that an invisible-type zip comes in a separating form? I think your front looks fine, but an invisible zip might be even better.

Such an interesting top! I can't wait to see the 'real' top.
