Very cute. It's good to know that this works as a sleeveless top too which will be great for summer. Thanks for trying and reviewing it!

Cassidy looks fabulous! Do you have a link for Sandra Betzina's advice? Where do I find this? Thanks.

Lauri Jean, thanks! I have been working through tips from her book titled, "Power Sewing" lately. I'll add the book to my review now!

Very cute! I love your fabric. I traced this quite a while ago and still haven't made it up yet--it's nice to still see reviews for this coming in. ;)

Leora, could you write a short tip on how to do the stabilizing with the "selvage?" Do you mean you used the same fabirc to make a self binding? I am confused, but it sounds great! Such a pretty top!

Peggy L said...
Your top turned out really cute. It really is cute and summery sleeveless. Great idea on using the selvedge to stabilize.

This looks great sleeveless!

Lovely top Leora! I think I'm going to copy you! FYI, I did the same sleeve and armhole adjustment on the cowl tee in the Feb BWOF and it worked perfectly, so I think yours will work too when you decide to do the top with sleeves.

Leora, you've written an extremely helpful review, as I have this top on my 'to do' list. You didn't need an FBA? I wonder if I could skate by without one; doubt it, but I can dream. Your top looks smashing and your $.99 fabric looks like a million. Lovely, Lily

That is so cute made up with without sleeves!

Fantastic top...don't tell anyone it was a bargain fabric and they won't know because it just looks fabulous. Great choice of fabric and style, executed beautifully.

I made this top over 4 years ago. Thanks for the idea for making it sleeveless.
