I like your top better than the CM original! It's so delicate looking. Nice job on the details too.

Wowza..did this ever turn out beautiful. I much prefer your's over the original. Apparently, I have this pattern in my collection, thanks so much for reviewing it and bringing it to my attention.

This is just flat-out beautiful. Great job on all counts--and yes, I like the "design feature" on ther back!

Oh and Dale C, I bought the fabric at Rag Shop.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind compliments! The fabric actually wasnt that much harder to sew; I used the suggested stich for lace from Sandra Betzina's "More Fabric Saavy" - a really tiny zigzag stitch (1.5 mm long, .5 mm wide). The fabric did get caught in the machine, but only about 3 or 4 times - a lot less than I expected!

Terrific knockoff. I saw this on Bluefly too and thought it'd be fun to try making. Where did you find the fabric? It's perfect for the design. What a savings you made!

I agree with the off-center pattern looking like a design element and the fact that you should pat yourself on the back for tackling such a complicated fabric. Not to mention all the design changes. Do not pass Go, go directly to Intermediate! :-)

Neat. The back is enough off-center to look deliberate. And look how much money you saved over buying that sweater! :)

Are you sure you are an advanced beginner? That material couldn't have been easy to sew. It is beautiful.

This is an excellent knock-off. It looks very high-end and stylish.

Great top. And it does pay to sew.

Sew Gorgeous! And you did a great job of lining everything up. How does it feel to make a $355 sweater??

Nice top.

I think it came out cute, too! :)

That is a knockout of a knockoff!!!! Great use of pattern and fabric!!! And the good thing about the pattern in the back being slightly off center - it is enough off center that it seems like a design element. Great job!
