That print looks great in this pattern. Did you have to tack it at the center front to keep it closed?

Oooh, that is so pretty! Thanks for the link to the bindings video. I always learn something from you :)

Sherrill - I was coming to edit the review to put that in and you had already asked. I did a few stitches in the ditch to hold it in place.

Very pretty top! Nice job lining up the print I've made this one for DD and DIL but never used it for myself. Maybe I should give it a whirl.

Thanks for reviewing this. I have it and was wondering about it as a "D" myself, and "tacking it."

Very lovely top and great job lining up the pattern - I can see it would be a problem if it wasn't. I like this Kwik Sew pattern so may add it to my wish list.

Very nice top. I have this waiting in line for it's turn. Thanks for the tip about tacking the front. Do you think a DD/E would need an fba or is this one of those wonderful patterns that don't?

Wow! This is a wrap top to remember. It is both beautifully and pristine! Your finishes are perfect, your fabric divine, and you've done a magnificent job of placing and matching this stunning print. It's simply gorgeous! A quick trip to my wishlist. -Lily

Wonderful rendition of this old fav. I used it again myself a few weeks ago. I really like the contrast binding and may "steal" that idea for my next top.

Ooooo, so pretty, and look at that ACE JOB of lining up your prints. Perfection! "Headlights" -- ha! That's a new one on me, yet I know exactly what you mean.

I love this top! What great fabric. You did a great job on the whole thing. I need to look and see if I have this pattern!

Lisa's not the only one that missed this review! Striking-looking T, especially with the superb pattern matching and contrast binding.
