Beautiful, just beautiful! Great photos of you, as usual, wearing it. I have this pattern -- If you had trouble with the instructions, I don't see how I will ever figure it out. :-(

I like your hair color, smile, this red on you, and your earrings. I cannot bring myself to say I like this blouse, there is entirely too much drape “through the center front tummy area”.

I love the color you used, but I have a wadder of this and I agree that even after watching the video at least 10 times it finally hit me how she was twisting the first piece. I may try this again after retracing with a smaller size using the underbust for sizing, as you have. It is flattering on you, even with the extra fabric at the tummy. On PR day I was at the Japanese book store looking at the Japanese pattern books, and there were some very interesting, complicated twisted tops and the photos, with no English, were totally understandable. Even with the video, this top was not clear and it is possible.

Nicely done! I am convinced by your review and all the other beautiful versions I've seen on PR that I NEED this pattern!

This turned out beautifully. Great color on you, and it doesn't *look* like there is excess fabric on you. It looks great!

Ann, Great looking twist top! Nice color and fit. I like the the length and scrunch of the sleeves, and especially like the "action shot"!

I love the unique distinctive styling of the front. The color is also especially beautiful.

Looks lovely on you and I can see why you wanted to show us the top in action. Who is that beautiful "center of attention"?

It's snazzy and distinctive - as usual with your sewing!

Even though you may not like the extra fabric in front, Ann, the top looks almost illegally cute on you!

This is so pretty on you! I love the soft draping in your top.

Anne, that top is gorgeous on you. You wear it well! I don't like tops with too much fabric in them either...they are just too hot for the weather in Africa!
