Glad you reviewed this as I just acquired this pattern and like the view you made.

Looks really good, and it's my color! Can I borrow it? That topstitching is impressive.

Nice looking top. This is not what I think of as "wearable art", very nice. The neckedge looks great.

It's nice to see a review of this top especially since the pattern is very interesting! Thanks for the tips on how to sew it and your top is very pretty!

Peggy, thanks for this review since I just bought this pattern. I'll watch my cutting now! This looks nice. I like "wearable art," when it's not "over the top."

So pretty! And I'm so excited I can see your photos now because I got a new computer with IE7!

What a nice finish you've done on this top. Your topstitching is JUST enough, without being over the top, as you said. Classy top for a classy lady! :o)

Great looking top! Your details are very nicely done and I like the color you chose.

Very smart and stylish top, Peggy, and the decorative stitch you've chosen is quite superior to the suggested combination of stitches. The color too is quite elegant. Lovely, Lily

Like everyone else, I am such a fan of the detail that you put into this top. So very nice & infinitely wearable !!

I'm waiting for this pattern to arrive - my first Club BMV order. You made up my favorite view and your assessment is right - a touch of art to wear, but with a sense of sophistication. Great results, great review.

Peggy - I just finished View A a couple of hours ago and View B a couple of days ago. I love them both, but agree about the need to downsize. I love the decorative stitching that you used on the overlap.

Very chic and original. I like the way that the seam detail sets this apart from normal T-shirts

Your t-shirt looks really really very nice. Glad to see you had good results with the pattern.
