Great job on both, but I'm not sure about the fit of the burgundy top. I'm sure you will wear it well though!!

Both your versions are lovely, but the latest cream sweater knit is stunning. Your collar and ties conversions were inspired, and you look killer chic. As always, excellent review. -Lily

I think the heavier sweater knit fabric really makes this top shine. I thinks is a little more forgiving in the wrap areas, while the lighter knit looks like you have to fiddle with it to lay just right. Love the pale cream color too.

Soooo devatastingly cute in the sweaterknit! I like the dress version too, but then again I am quite partial to my bathrobe.

Nicegirl, I love all of your reviews on patternreview. You are a great inspiration for those of us who are trying to improve our sewing skills. You show us how to keep working on a project until we get it right. Thank you! Marpratt

I like the way you finished the ties at the side seam. Color looks good on you. Very nice job! ;-)

I love your top and I think the decision to capture the ties in the side seams made it even more flattering!

Great "refinements". I like the way you did the ties.

Nicegirl, this looks great on you! You always have such interesting ideas about ways of modifying things to suit what you prefer. I love what you've done with the ties on this. Sewing them into the side seam makes so much sense. Great work!

I like how you altered the ties; I also tend to avoid things that tie in the back.

Cute top, great idea sewing the ties into the side seams.

Very nice! I like the alteration you did (with the criscross ties). I saw that pattern and thought that the knot in the back might be lumpy and uncomfortable. I like how you modified it!

Very pretty color on you! Great idea sewing the ties to the SS.

I also like this one, NiceGirl! As my friend Roddy sings, "You Wear It Well"!

Congrats, both on getting this done and obviously making friends with your camera again. I still haven't finished anything out of the issues I borrowed from you, but soon! I like the way you did the ties on this - if I ever make a second version, I think I'll do that.

LOVE the way you did the ties, it looks so elegant. I agree with you that tying things at the back is pretty silly for a grown woman ;-)

I like your version much better than than tied one. Looks great on you!
