Megan, How exciting is this; I am your first reviewer!! And a lovely review it is. You are an amazing seamstress and to find time to sew in your extremely busy schedule is awesome. I love the shoulder detailing and the fit in the top is great. In my opinion, I loved the way you wore the top in the pics with jeans and a cami. I think you'll get lots of wear out if this in the spring and summer. So, enjoy your finished project; we'll await the next one!!

Cute cover up! Good hear from you ! Is that bow on top of the car in yr pic?

Great review. Sounds like you're getting older and "adult" things are filling your life now. Welcome to the club! Save a corner for sewing always.

That is so cute Meggie! I'm glad you were able to post your review. I know you've been so busy, but summer will be here before you know it and I'm sure that will bring a little more sewing time for you (well maybe!).

I like yours better! welcome back.

Who does that KARENDEE think she is, anyway, being the FIRST to comment? Am I going to have to KICK her or WHAT? Heh-heh-heh. Well, being the SIXTH to comment (I hope), I can only say, WELCOME BACK!!!! YIPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! PR isn't the same without our Miss Meggie LuLu. As for your top, I REALLY, REALLY like it. The neckline is PERFECT either for over a swimsuit OR a tank, and I REALLY like the way the stripes in the fabric play up the design of the sleeves. EXCELLENT JOB, as usual!

AND I like your new profile pic, too. :o)

Awesome top and the neck looks great!!! I love the sleeves. Thank you for reviewing--have been wondering what you've been up to :) !!

Yes, that is a PURPLE bow on my car!! I got a '95 Boss Mustang for my birthday! It is black with a purple BOSS stripe!! My older brothers built it for me!! Thanks everyone for the very nice comments! =D

Very cute! I have a teen so I knew you were busy, but I missed your reviews...:-)

A cute top.
1/16/10 9:27 PM
nice top - will def. be cute with a bathing suit! Congrats on the car!
1/16/10 9:34 PM
I love your top!!!! I sort of passed this pattern up but after seeing yours I'm going to hunt it down. I so much have missed seeing your reviews so I'm glad to see you back at the sewing machine. I know how it is when life gets in the way. Congrats on the car!!! How exciting!!

Great top! You sew, your mom sews, and your brothers built you a car! You are part of a very talented family.
1/16/10 11:20 PM
Great top, Megan! And I'm glad you found some time to sew!
1/17/10 9:00 AM
Great top. We've missed you- glad to see you're back sewing.

Meggie, this is such a charming top! Sorry, I am late for the party, but better now than never. This top is versatile, and will take you to spring. WONDERFUL sewing as always!
1/17/10 10:34 AM
That is so pretty on you! Good to see you on PR again!
1/17/10 10:40 AM
Great top - great review - and great car!!
1/17/10 10:48 AM
Cute top Meggie, so nice to see that even though new priorities are filling your life, you manage to come back to sewing....may it always be one of the special things that brings you back to center! I like your choice of a striped fabric to give your coverup extra interest. Nice job. And what a beautiful car! Enjoy!
1/17/10 10:56 AM
Darling top. Congratulations on your new car. Looks like your brothers did a great job. Keep sewing!
1/17/10 3:24 PM
PR hasn't been the same without you, so welcome back! This is so cute, and I love all the details that make it special, like the unusual sleeves and V-neck. I think the vents are a smart addition -- they look just right with this kind of top. You'll be cruising to the beach (or maybe the pool...) this summer in your awesome new car and pretty new top!
1/17/10 4:52 PM
I like the cover-up. It works as a cute top as well. What a fantastic family you have. They built you a car! Wow.
1/17/10 6:16 PM
Great top, it looks cute on you. You did a great job as usual! Congrats on your car!

Meggie...another winner. This top is so cute on you !

What a cute top! I love the lightweight, cotton - it's just perfect... It's great that you are enjoying yourself and your school/work activities! But always a pleasure to see your projects. ;)
1/19/10 5:07 PM
I've been wanting to try this. Yours is super cute. Great choice of fabric and thanks for all the great photos! And what a fab brother! Congrats and have fun!
1/27/10 7:02 PM
Wow, I'm humbled by all that you get accomplished...and I don't mean just sewing;-) What a great top...love the lines on this one and you'll get lots of use out of it.
