Gorgeous, Cris. I love the neckline on these tops. Gotta have (at least) one for me.

Now THAT is a fabulous idea. I'm wishing I hadn't just dropped off that giant bag of cast-offs to Goodwill...

I love your new tops! How great to recycle some fabric you loved into a new life. Thanks for reviewing this pattern.

Amazing. Thanks for a fabulous review and showing us how you reused old tops!

I am so glad you reviewed this top. This issue of BWOF had some really interesting things -- particularly the 50s flashback. Great results!

Your review is quite inspirationa! Your tops are both lovely. I appreciate the tip on how you stabilized the neck with the same fabric strip and being able to see your cutting process.

Vonnevo, you are right. I will have to figure out just the right undergarment to wear with this. It may not be as comfortable as the top looks...

I love your tops! I think the remake makes them even more wonderful.

great use of old clothing...i've got to do this instead of giving everything to good will! this style is very flattering on you.

Wow way to go Crisford! That's repurposing at it's best. You ended up with 2 great tops. Thanks for the review - that was the pattern I liked the best in that issue and I may have to give it a try.

Lovely tops, the neckline is very pretty and you have done a great job of re-using other garments to make these.

Great re-fashion! Love the top! Agree very flattering. Thanks for posting!

Terrific transformations ! As I don't have my magzine yet, I am guessing this lovely neckline is not bra friendly?? Thanks for sharing and writing an excellent review :)

Beautiful tops! Great re-makes! Thank you for the really good review!

Beautiful transformation! Your top is so gorgeous, and completely different from its original incarnation. Thank you for the great review.
