DorothyK, I just found your review and I love this top. You did a fantastic job with the diagonal stripes. That is so hard to get right and you nailed it. I also enjoyed watching your video. How neat to have a voice that goes with your picture. Great review!

You have really raised the bar on PR reviews with your wonderful video. Love the use of the diagonal stripe and the perfect matching of the stripes on the pocket with the top. Looks terrific on you. I just finished three versions which I will be posting soon but without the beautiful orange tree in the background as we are totally snowed in here on the east coast with more to come tomorrow.

Gorgeous top on you!!! Perfect marriage of pattern and fabric. Thanks for the great review and companion video. Guess this pattern needs to move nearer the top of the "to sew" pile.

You're going to think I'm a terrible copycat, but I do want to use this pattern for some stripe in my stash. At least it's not the same fabric (although it's green too). Great looking top and a very helpful review!

Great review and the video is such a nice extra. The Urban T looks beautifully made and is a perfect and flattering fit on you. Thanks for sharing!

Dorothy, what a fabulous looking top! The fabric with pattern provides such a stylish statement and the fit is perfect. Your review including video allows for much more detail to be shared. Great job.

Thank you for the detailed review, great still pictures and video. What a treat! I made this in a solid slinky which also works pretty well, but I love your version and the way you utilized the stripes. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful top! Thanks so much for shooting the helpful video. Viewers discern so much more from a video versus a static photograph! I adore SW patterns. I have a couple of their patterns, but I haven't made up either yet. I really want this one after seeing your top.

The top is fantastic and thanks for the video. Your reviews are always so helpful and the video is a great bonus. I hope you will continue to do them.

Gorgeous t shirt. I really like that it is just a little different and quite chic on you. I've been eying this on their site and I may be convinced to actually buy another pattern.

A striking and distinctive garment, and it looks fabulous on you. Well done.

Excellent review & video. You're changing my mind about this pattern; somehow I shy away from SW because they seem odd, but they grow on you!

I love it. The stripe is just right for this and in your colors too. The video is delightful. Now you have combined your love of movie making with your sewing. Perfect!

Fabulous top and I love the video! Thanks for going to the extra effort of making it. I must check out this pattern as it's much more fitted than I imagined from the line drawing.
