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

Somehow I missed this when you posted it! But it looks great...and the print placement is spot on ;)

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!

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.

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.

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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