Really really pretty top and beatifully made. Damask was in inspired choice for this pattern, and is NOT just for tablecloths! Gee, if I had one without the collar I'd trade you - I need stand-ups for my chicken neck LOL

What a beautiful job you did with this jacket! I'm just catching up on reviews and wow! Super details. Thanks for the review and photos.

Fabulous! I love the hemstitching, especially on the linen fabric. This is one of my favorite patterns. I wear mine very often. I'm sure you will enjoy your version.

What a gorgeous blouse! The hemstitching is such a beautiful detail. I have always wanted to try that stitch. Your blouse is wonderful inspiration for me!

Great fabric for a fabulous pattern. I think this is one of the SW's best patterns. It is really very versatile as you say in your last paragraph. Nice work!

You have inspired me to finish the one I am making at the moment. I am up to the buttonholes.

What a neat rendition of this pattern. I think your choice of fabric is divine. Très cool!

apparently this pattern came with a very generous designer ease and for some of us, it is really helpful but on others well. . .like yourself you cut a M instead of your usual XL Lucky you that your skills are up to these changes. Your top is beautiful. I know you will enjoy all the compliments.

The combination of the textures of your fabric and your hem-stitching is gorgeous.

Thank you all - The hemstitching is just one of the selections on my very basic Janome machine. They refer to it as a "smocking" stitch, and recommend using the satin stitch foot and a wing needle to make the holes.

Very nice top. I love the top-stitching!

A very distinctive shirt. The fabric is lovely, and the topstitching is most impressive.

Love it! It really turned out great and I love the hemstitching. Glad you got these at the Quilt Show:)

I was going to ask the same question as Red Curtain. The skirt is absolutely gorgeous ; the fabric, style, and stitching are all beautiful. You have inspired me to make this pattern.

Lovely. What type of foot or special stitch do you use to do the hemstitching? It looks fabulous.

The hemstitching is a beautiful touch. Lovely shirt.

This is gorgeous! It's my favorite Sewing Workshop pattern -- I've made it a couple of times. I love the hemstitch -- definitely not a tablecloth!

Gorgeous. I love the hemstitching detail. This is on my to-sew list, perhaps this spring.
