Lovely shirt - it looks great on you. And oh how I covet that coverstitch machine! Beautiful job, as always!
6/13/07 12:17 PM
Beautiful top, I love that fabric!
6/13/07 12:18 PM
Nice t-shirt, great fabric!
6/13/07 12:30 PM
Love this! I have this one traced and ready to cut out.
6/13/07 12:39 PM
Wonderful fit for almost no alterations,..... isn't that great? Sometimes I feel like the alterations take longer than the sewing. I love the fabric. Nice job on the coverstitch....every time I read one of your reviews I am closer to buying a coverstitch machine.

Nice top Debbie. One of these days I have to sit down and figure out the proper settings for my coverstitch binders. Yours bindings look so professional.
6/13/07 1:14 PM
Cute top and great review, as usual. Thanks for the extra pictures and explanations for the neckline and sleeve edges. I always admire your perfect coverstitching. Maybe someday, with more practice, I'll acquire the skill.
6/13/07 2:25 PM
Terrific colors on you Debbie!
6/13/07 4:23 PM
I love this top. I have got to get me some of those binders.
6/13/07 5:31 PM
Great fabric choice. Another TNT winner!
6/13/07 6:14 PM
I really like the fabrics you use Debbie. Very nice.
6/13/07 7:38 PM
First Angie's rave review, now yours. This is quickly becoming the latest must-have pattern. Thanks for the tip about the 1/2" binder too.
6/13/07 7:52 PM
wow, no shoulder or sleeve width adjustments!!! That's fantastic.
6/13/07 8:03 PM
Great top - gorgeous fabric!
6/13/07 8:13 PM
Wow No FBA? Fantastic and another reason why I want a CS. Great tee

What issue of Ottobre did this come out of? Looks like I'd like to make it. It's very nice on you, Debbie
6/13/07 10:38 PM
This top looks very cute on you. Nice fabric too.
6/13/07 11:33 PM
Very nice Debbie- I love that fabric!
6/14/07 0:31 AM
Thank you for another very helpful review!!
6/14/07 4:12 AM
Oh, this sounds like a pearl! Now how to get my hands on it :-)..
6/14/07 5:17 AM
I am not sure that I NEED it, but I sure do like it!
6/14/07 6:35 AM
Great top Debbie, looks wonderful on you! And a wonderful review as always!
6/14/07 6:49 AM
Nice top Debbie! Now where do we get Ottobre woman magazine?
6/14/07 7:16 AM
Really super looking Tee. Neat job with the cover stitch!
6/14/07 9:27 AM
Look great Debbie - thanks for the thorough review. I really appreciate the pictures of the neckline and sleeve finishes. Practical illustrations of the use of having a coverstitch functionality.
6/14/07 10:12 AM
I love it, Debbie! You look great in this top. I wasn't going to try it because of the sleeves, but I think they look great on you so I will try them on me. For those who asked, you can get Ottobre Woman here http://www.ottobredesign.com/ and you CAN subscribe to just the "woman" version and not the "kids" version, if that's what you want (but if you have kids, you NEED both). And you can still get this issue as part of your sub (as of today, when I checked). Or you can purchase backorders seperately.
6/14/07 10:59 AM
Inspired by your coverstitch! Thanks.
6/14/07 2:43 PM
Great tee, Debbie! That fabric is soo pretty, it's perfect for this top, and how great that it needed no FBA :D:D
6/14/07 3:33 PM
Your top looks great, Debbie. I'm about to trace it off for myself and wondered - did you use your high bust measurement or your full bust measurement when choosing your size?
6/14/07 4:42 PM
I used both. My high bust to choose the upper body sizing (neck, shoulders, armholes) and then I extended out to my full bust at the bottom of the armhole.
6/14/07 6:15 PM
Great top, very cute.

I LOVE the fabric for top #2!! And I'm so jealous of how tan you are in the other pictures! Argh!!
12/3/07 7:14 PM
I especially love the fabric in #2 but I like all of your tops! I bought this pattern recently on eBay... I'm shaped like you so it is good to see how it looks on a full figured woman! Great review~
12/4/07 0:32 AM
Wonderful tees. Love them all. This pattern is so versatile. I used it again this weekend as starting point for my DD t-shirt. Great result in her size again.
12/4/07 2:38 AM
Love your new versions!!
12/4/07 11:21 AM
Debbie, not only are all the versions really great, but dang you're a fast sew-er.
12/4/07 5:50 PM
This is currently my favorite pattern for the shirt. I LOVE this fabric!!
12/29/07 5:39 PM
I love the shaped sleeve binding! I will have to try that on my next go.
