Fantastic. Of course you had no trouble putting it together! I thought you had coordinated two different fabrics to construct but instead you cleverly arranged the design to look like that. Great job.

I've seen this top constructed in a crisper fabric--it was very cute but also very "distinctive." Your choice of a soft lawn really changes it--beautifully, as usual for you! Marci

You sure aced this one. That is one stunning outfit, including your gorgeous necklace. It works wonderfully with your coloring and looks so perfectly pulled together. Fabulous.

A cute and distinctive top. You've made me see possibilities in this pattern myself.

What a great top! You really know how to find interesting fabric and use it well. I like the various ways you can wear it. Lucky you had the perfect skirt.

Simply Fabulous! I can't believe what a cool pattern this is--I passed right over it, but you've made it irresistible. Your garment looks far superior to the envelope version. Thank you for such a detailed review. I've got to get some of Pamela's interfacing--such beautiful results.

This is lovely! The fabric is beautiful and the style is great on you. I'm so glad you gave the info on the skirt as well. As I looked at the picture, I wondered if you had made the skirt and what pattern it was! Great combo.

Another beautiful garment. You have such a wonderful eye for colour, and have used the patterned fabric so well.
