Very, very nice. It's great to have a pattern like this which you can count on.

Darling results! The alterations were worth it.

That looks great on you! Love it!

Very cute! It is so nice to have a reliable pattern for a basic garment.

Very pretty top which is very becoming on you, Deepika. I've never tried Neue Mode simply out of laziness; don't want to add the seam allowances. Your review, however, makes me want to try them.

That shirt is great, Deepika - the fit, the style, and of course, the exquisitely tasteful fabric ;-) My share of it is still "maturing" in the stash, but I can see a shirt like yours in DD's future. I love it!

Very pretty! I really like the split sleeves. This fits you beautifully!

So pretty on you, Deepika! I love the sleeves and hate to hear you're cutting them shorter. The fabric sounds intriguing. Would you post of close up photo of it?

This looks great on you! I have seen a similar fabric in a fabric store here that looks like it has pieces of denim randomly attached to a background of navy floral. it is very intriguing. The fabric is soft, like a buttermilk knit. Maybe I will pick some up if they ever mark it down. This is a great top for year round.

coool, you're really an inspiration

Terrific top! I really must try sewing knits - this is much better than RTW.

Deepika, your top is beautiful! I really love that fabric. When I lettuced my sleeves I lettuced them first and then turned back the vent facing. That made it easier to get a neat finish there.

Pretty shirt - love the pattern, glad it fits you so well.
3/20/04 7:23 AM
Great shirt. As always, you have made a lovely piece of clothing. I really like the long sleeves.
3/20/04 8:06 AM
I used to think like that too. But it's really no extra work at all. Plus the fact that they fit me so well makes me do it. I think you should try these patterns.
I was actually thinking of posting a close up photo yesterday. I'll do it today.
I highly encourage you to try knits, but the bad thing with that is, you may never go back to wovens :) They are so easy and quick.
thanks for the tip on lettucing the sleeves. Everyone, thanks a lot for such nice comments. I am making the skirt today :) And since so many of you like the long sleeves, I've decided not to cut them off. Thank you!

Love it! Looks really nice on you and love the fabric. Love the sleeves. Don't cut them off!!!! Everyone has 3/4 sleeves not these, they look great! I am adding this pattern to my wish list. I have yet to made a NM pattern but your review convinces me to give it a try.
3/20/04 2:32 PM
The fit looks PERFECT! I'll have to pull this one out of my stash and try it soon.
3/20/04 8:37 PM
Deepika this black and white looks fabulous on you! Great job!
3/21/04 8:02 PM
Deepika, I saw the t-shirt on your skirt review. Too cute! And yes, it fits perfectly. It has a lovely shape. What a great idea!
3/29/04 8:09 PM
The newly constructed t shirt really shows your curves! Now instead of a boxy t shirt you have a shapely one! Very nice.
3/29/04 8:12 PM
How clever of you! It never occured to me to remake souvenier tee's. It came out really nicely.
3/29/04 11:22 PM
Deepika, I've often thought of buying ready-to-wear for the fabric. They seem to have access to better fabric than you can find in fabric stores, especially knits. Though, since being a member of PR, I've been learning about lots of great fabric web sites with beautiful fabric.

Looks super on you! Thanks for the review.

Deepika, I love the top, the sleeves are fluttery and feminine! A question, do NM patterns have petite adjustments?
10/22/04 11:05 AM
Oh I'm so glad you posted this again! I have a pile of large square shapeless T-shirts & remembered how you redid your Las Vegas T. You've inspired me to use a well-fitting T-shirt pattern to salvage these Ts!
10/22/04 11:16 AM
Very pretty shirt! Love the idea of remaking souvenier t-shirts too!

What a pretty top! The lowered neckline is a definate improvement, and very flattering. I love the sleeves! Not very practical for a SAHM but maybe in a shorter length I could get away with it :o) Thanks for the review!
