I had this pattern in my collection for awhile and after seeing how lovely your top looks, it has made me want to put it on my to do list.

I bought this pattern for the skirt, which I love & have made several of, but never really warmed to the top. Now that I've seen your version though, this has been elevated to a must sew. It looks absolutely gorgeous - thanks for the inspiration!

This is so pretty. I missed this review in the summer while traveling and came upon it this evening while planning to sew up the pants on this pattern. Your top is absolutely elegant.

I love wrap tops and this looks great on you! I've had this pattern for awhile but haven't used it yet. Your review is inspiring me to make something from this pattern.

Geez I have this pattern and never thought it could look so nice - thanks for the review - will move it up the line of "to do" now

You look terrific in this, it really shows off your long legs! What a great style, and bears repeating with the 2 piece outfit. Thanks for the tie alert.

I love the combination of the fabric and pattern--you chose it beautifully. I agree about wrap tops, they are usually cleavage showcases-but this one looks feminine and cozy on you. I love it.

Your outfit looks terrific. I love the fabric for your top.

What a great looking outfit! You make the blouse look quite chic. I need to put that pattern on my list. Nice review.

Love that knit fabric..the print is stunning on you. It would look great with a pair of dark denium jeans! PS: not made for ties either. Thanks for a great review as always.

Great top! This is one of my favorite wrap patterns. I love the print too.

Cute, cute, cute! I'm with you, I didn't think I liked this pattern, there's so many wrap tops out now. Your point about the tie is right on, I would like the 'non-bow' tie too. Thanks for a very great review. Also, I peeked at your blogsite--are you making your wedding outfit?

Well done . . . a great, classic top! Amazing how many unneccessary back seams are drawn into patterns these days . . . it's good to know that this pattern doesn't need one!

The top really turned out cute. I purchased this pattern so that I could make the top also. It looks so good on the cover, and now seeing yours, I am more motivated to pull it out of my pile. Nice job eliminating the back seam. I'm not sure why they would put that in there... It turned out really sophisticated and love that knit fabric. Thanks for the tip on the ties.

Cute top.

This pattern is on my late summer to-do list (ok...left over from last summer's to-do list). Thanks for the review. I hope mine turns out as well as yours. :)

Thanks for the heads up on the ties. I think this top is really cute. I'll start on this when I start on my fall/winter wardrobe.
