Looks like a wonderful basic pattern with a little extra pizazz.

How funny - I didn't add those tips to my review - but they are good ones I will have to try!

Thank you for the Marcy Tilton tips! I saw her at her 3/2007 SewExpo seminar on $200 knit top. And I got to see her one-of-a-kind tops: they were inspiring.

Yes, that cat is so hilarious. As soon as I move toward the sewing (AKA dining room) table, his is there. I always tell my kids that "Tobey wants to sew"

What a cute top. I think NICE black tops and wihte tops are valuable basics, and this is definitely just that. Good idea, too, on going out farther on the side seams, as opposed to doing a full bust adjustment. Next time I make something with a knit, I may try that idea myself. Great job on your SWAP. I'm having so much fun seeing what everybody's created.

This fabric was a steal at Fabricmart for less than $4 a yard!

Nancy-- beautiful, beautiful. You can pay Chico's 50 bucks for it or you can make your own in an hour. I know which one I choose!

Hey Nancy - not only ar eyou sewing lovely stuff most of which I have the patterns for but now have to tell you I bought this identical material - both in turquoise and the tan - nice stuff. Your top looks lovely!

Nancy, love your fabric. I am making a similar top from KS. I may stitch down the neckline first as you wrote here. Not the way they direct in the KS pattern but using twill tape is same concept for KS also. Lovely top, fits well!
