Your top looks great! I love both of your versions. I made and reviewed the top and I had low expectations of this top and was pleasantly surprised it turned out great!

Great top. I wish I had had the same success with the pattern. LinCee, an apple wouldn't be able to wear this. It would work better with a long, less fluffy, torso. I'm short waisted with a little fluff and I couldn't wear it, much to tight. The front was great, but as it went around the sides, we just didn't work ;-) It's not a relaxed fit around the sides.

I thought that fabric looked familiar! Nice pattern; it made up well. I like the gathering as opposed to twisting.

Your top looks great on you. I'm wondering why you say to avoid this pattern if one is "apple-shaped." Do you think it emphasizes the apple or does it create an apple?

Thanks for the entertaining review! Oh the woes of buying odd sizes of fabric and never having the right amount for a project.

Great review; funny too! I LOVE the idea of the two coordinating fabrics, especially since it gives at least the illusion of a waist. I admit I've looked at this pattern and thought, "well, I have enough twist tops", but I think I should pick this up next time I'm in Jo-Anns!

HaHa! Needless to say, I love the fabric too! I always wanted a twin... Seriously, this is a pattern I've been wondering about so I'm looking forward to seeing it in person.

I love the fabric that you used, and the cut of the blouse is very flattering!
