I absolutely love your top! I'm thinking of sewing this pattern with a silk gauze and rayon twill lining. Your review has given me hope I can pull it off. :) Thanks for the really helpful review!

I love the fabric you used and the back's so cute as well, definitely better and more inspiring than the pattern model photo.

This is fabulous on you. The style and color is perfect. The weight is genius!

Thanks for the review. I have made up this top in a knit as I am a bit scared of bias, but might summon up the courage now!

PERFECT color for you, and the top is REALLY cute. I've eyed this pattern several times myself. I LOVE your idea of the weight to help with the front drape. It hangs beautifully.

How pretty! This top seems to come out particularly nicely in georgette.

Really pretty top and I agree that it looks great on you! I've been rethinking my love affair w/ cowls since they all do seem to misbehave...what a brilliant idea to use a weight! I wonder if a chain stitched into the cowl would work, too...???

Pretty top! I just bought this pattern recently, so glad to see you review it.

Very cute top, and great color. I have this pattern, but have not made this view. I will rethink it with your comments about the partial front facing in mind!

Beautiful colour on you. Lovely top and I think it is cute that you will have some cash whilst travelling in Hong Kong in a secret spot.

Love that orange - very pretty and complimentary to your coloring!

Wow, this came out really nice!! Love that fabric. I read with interest that it was a cowl top made from woven fabric. I made a cowl from a knit and it falls off my shoulders, which are pretty broad. Am thinking maybe a woven would not do this.
