These are both really nice tops, the neckline is very flattering.

Great tops. The mesh one is a really great variation.

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.

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.

Ohhhh! I like them both. Truly like what you did with the mesh knit. Both look great on you.

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

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.

Oooo!! Both versions look FABULOUS!! I LOVE the fabrics you've chosen!! Each top is just BEAUTIFUL!!!

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!

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.

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

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