A well written review, and your top looks fantastic on you. I love it combined with the skirt.

I too am recently retired. Suits and white blouses was my daytime outfit. Jeans was my evening outfit. I have gotten a lot funkier also. This top I have been eyeing but you have made it an inspiration. Got to try this look. TY

SOOOOOOOOOOOO cute -- THE WHOLE OUTFIT! I love your unique top, and it's a perfect match with the skirt. I'm also glad to see somebody else is wearing cowboy boots. :o) That's pretty much my DAILY footwear.

Wowza - you look great - for sure 60 is not old (nor is 70+) - age is a state of mind and you sure are not looking 60 - enjoy this top - looks like it is a real fun pattern - must give this a try

Love it! Will have to check out those techniques, your insertions look so smooth and perfect.

Well, you are just sewing like a house afire all of a sudden!! This is a pretty, versatile top and I like the insertion fabric you decided to use. You could pair this with so many different things. Thank you for the tips about the notions you used -- they would come in handy for all sorts of projects. Your new top is great!

This top looks great and I am so glad you are back at your sewing machine. You definitely haven't lost your speediness - two nice tops in such a short time. The details on this one are so stylish! Nice boots too!

You are back in the saddle again! The top looks great and your fabric combo really gives you the boutique look you want! The whole outfit with the cowboy boots is so put-together, yet eccentric, so you scored for sure. 60 looks great on you!

Lately, I have been fixated on Marci and Katherine Tilton's patterns. I also just read an informative article about stretch tulle in the latest issue of Vogue pattern magazine. Love your creatively put-together top! Great tips, too. Your top looks perfect with your skirt and boots. You are stylin'!

Peggy, you are just a speedy sewist. This MT top is amazing and you look so trendy with your new top, tights and boots. I like everything about your outfit.

Great attitude and great look! I've been looking at this top myself and 'gleened' alot of info from your review! Thanks!

You look fantastic and no where near 60! Nice job on the fabulous looking top and a very good review!!

Wearable art for sure and I love how you have paired the Marci Tilton top with the Nancy Erickson skirt (which looks fabulous at age 5) and the boots. A real kickin', fun outfit.

Sixty is not old -- especially not on you! Nice job on the blouse and the boots are a classic touch.

Thanks for the review. I love Marcy's designs and have this pattern on my pile. I agree with you that her website is so inspiring. I love browsing for ideas. Your top is very attractive and looks great on a "60" year old woman!
