Hot looking top! =)

My first reaction was Va Va Voom! It has a retro look and is very pretty on you. Teenagers are critical, don't take it personally (remember high school?). I would make more, with the tie, without the tie, in different colorways.

Thanks for all the lovely comments- this is my first review so I feel I am off to a good start! As to the fit I was pretty happy with it when I made it, however the sleeves don't look as loose as other reviews- maybe as I am taller and am using less ease? Diane E thanks for the comment on my art, just another hobby that I don't seem to have as much time as I would like for...:)

Lovely top and I like the ties too. It's good to see this on a body more like mine, I never thought I could wear such a top, but perhaps I should try, seeing your result. Lovely fabric too.

Very pretty and eye catching. Nice top that can be dressed up or down.

Very lovely look - I dont think you need a bigger size in this particular fabric - the fit looks great.

Kate, this is just gorgeous. I have to echo other comments here -- I love the ties, in a bow or hanging down. I also think the size is perfect. Thanks for reminding me that it is GOOD to hang on to the Burda magazines for the treasures contained within. P.S. I am enjoying the Flickr peek into your sketchbook. Lovely!

I love it. If you or your step daughter don't want it, please feel free to send to me. I need it.

Thanks!! Its so nice to get feedback- especially positive feedback! The fabric was wonderful I just couldnt resist..I have 1 metre of the same in a blue colourway but have no idea what to make with 1 metre?

This is an amazingly beautiful top. I LOVE the ties!! They are NOT too dressy at all. The top and ties suit you to a T. Make MORE of these tops w ties!
