I love that fabric! That looks great and the fit is terrific. BTW, did you see Mini's comment on SW re: the shoulder/armhole drafting? She thinks there may be a drafting error.

I would like this top but it's no longer in the catalogue - 3 days later? Or is it an Australian thing? Where could I buy one I wonder?

Thanks for the explanation. I just got this pattern in from a co-op and can't wait to make it up!

Great fabric, and very nice in this pattern. Absolutely a classic! I'll be interested to see your other versions as well.

Groovy, D! Totally 60's, man, but perfect for '03. It looks great on you. And I'm really glad to learn of an easy pattern for wovens that has style and is a little more fitted.

I agree; this is a nice pattern that I would not have looked at twice without the reviews & project pictures.

Thanks everyone! I wore it to work today and I must say it was very comfortable. I went to Joanns also to pick up some interfacing and I got a lot of compliments on this. Karla the lady behind the cutting table also said that I looked right out of 60s ;-) She said those were 'creative' days. Mary A salwar kameez (pants & tunic) is an indian dress comprising of a long tunic (these days the short ones are in vogue) and drawstring pants (generally very full and they have a yoke at the top). Something like this although this is a more modern version of a salwar kameez which I normally wear :)

Looks great, D! The fabric and the pattern are a perfect combination, and the fit is just right. And I love the fact that what was worn when I was in college is new again. At least, I THINK I love it....

Classy print and it fits so well! What is a salwar kameez if you don't mind my asking?

Love your top. I just bought this pattern; now I can't wait to make it.

This top looks great on you! Love it with the jeans. Wonderful pattern/fabric combo. The colors compliment you beautifully!

Pretty, D, looks good with jeans and not too busy. A flowing skirt would balance out the wider sleeves. I love the fabric.
