I love this top, but have been struggling with how to do the fba. Then I remembered IRENE made this. Thanks for the fba info.

I have this pattern waiting to be sewn and have read and heard great things about it. I really like the way you've come up with lots of variations. I may be copying a few!

I just came across your review as I happily finished my second Louise pattern and am considering buying this one now. Thank you so much for all the detail and the creative variations you applied to the basic pattern. You've inspired me!

You really did a great job on all of the versions. The pink shirts you made really are flattering to your complexion. You've really been busy reducing the stash!

When I saw the first version of this shirt in the sew along thread I bought it ... your review has really convinced me that this is my ideal summer shirt, but I can't find the darn thing! Thanks for your review, I'm inspired to tear my house apart now to find the pattern.

Very impressive and stylish, Irene! You are fortunate to find a super cool pattern! I adore all your tops, but you especially ROCK in those groovy dots and that luscious pink top.

I love this, had never heard of the company before, but bookmarked it, might be an add on to Lutterloh for me. Looks great on you!

Wow, those are just amazing! I love the way you cut the plaid on the bias in #3. I also love the modifications you made to the pink silk/linen top. They all look gorgeous on you. I bought the Ebb/Flow pattern last month, but I was a bit hesitant to try it since I've never used a Cutting Line pattern before. You have inspired me to make it my next project.

Irene, I love your shirts too! Especially the 1,3,6 & 7. Thanks for the explanation about moving the dart to the seam.

You really worked this pattern. I like the notched sleeve and also how you changed it to a pullover tunic style. I think this pattern would be great year round and could endless keep reinventing itself-hope I can get my pattern to fit as well as you have your versions.

I love your shirts too! I have the pattern but have not worked with it yet. It is slowly moving up on my list! I especially like #3 and #7.
