Both your tops are gorgeous and I love the way you changed up the second one.

Very stylish tops. I love your clever design with the mesh over the jersey.

Cute tops!!! I llove the way you used the two different fabrics in the second top. I'm working on that one myself right now.

I love your tops! The mesh one is especially great. I'm confused though; did you actually cut the mesh and reattach the mesh/jersey to the upper bodice at that line? Or, is the mesh one piece and you added an underlayer of mesh. Either way, it's great!

Stacy, I am so inspired! I wish I hadn't just spent all my money on shoes today because I need that pattern and the mesh. I would never have though of doing this and now I just MUST have it. you look just adorable in it too.

This is a great top - you cannot help making more than one! I love your mesh version too.

Nice tops, Stacy! I like what you did with the mesh version.

I can't take all the credit for the mesh version Ann (GorgeousThings) really inspired this design! Cabinbaby - The mesh is in two parts in both the front and back. The top portions are strictly mesh and the bottom half is mesh and jersey that was basted together to make one piece.

Love your tops - like you, I never liked boatnecks until I made a dress with one. It changed my opinion, like your lovely tops! Great job.
