Love the fabric and the solid blue line at the waist. I have just cut this in a printed seersucker and am a bit nervous after all your comments on fitting but only one way to learn!

I agree with all the other comments, about both tops! #4 is absolutely perfect on you, but I really like the green as well :)

This looks really great! I love that you used sheets, one of my favorite sewing mediums. Your top looks so very professional, too! Also, thanks for the great review, and fitting tips. :D

Wonderful top! I am going to hunt harder for sheets to use for something besides muslins and pjs.

Wow this may be the prettiest tops I've ever seen. Beautiful, both the top and the model.

Another GREAT review, and I just LOVE this little top. You should wear it EVERY TIME you go in your kitchen, because look how nicely it coordinates. :o) I'm going to be looking for neat sheets now.

Long time not reading your reviews... sorry for being so absent... the fourth version is a total success... and the green one is nice... from my point of view at least. Nice, nice top

Such a fresh, fun, and fabulous top! You achieved a superb fit and thanks for the informative review, especially with regards to the peplum, which rarely works for me in various patterns, because of the need to make more adjustments. I am glad that you made the peplum work for you. Very nice job!
