Very nice job on your shirt with all the stripes. I really love it.

Peggy, this shirt is just beautiful. It is just one of my favorite patterns, and you certainly "did the pattern justice." I'd definitely make that style again.

So cool to see this made! Love seeing it modeled in your new workplace. Could you be persuaded to teach any other classes? Can't wait for your PRO blog.

I have now made this shirt three times: 'an all time favorite. Your version with the stripes is lovely and original: I love it. Whenever I wear one of the ones I've made, , compliments are heard. A truly wonderful pattern by Sewing Workshop.

Fabulous marriage of fabric and pattern. This is a SW pattern that I don't own (yet). Your review has inspired me. It's going on my wish list. Thanks!

Nice looking top Peggy. I really love that sleeve inset. Lucky quilt shop having you work there.

Hi Peggy - I love your shirt - think the stripes really show off all the details. Have been on and off about this pattern - you are moving me to "on". You are brave workign in a quilt shop _ I could in my local one but know I probably would never bring home a dime. Should wear a "will work for fabric" sign around my neck!!

I love this pattern. Your shirt shows off the design beautifully and is very well sewn. What a great way to start your new job.

CUTE top, Peggy! I really like the way the stripes play against each other. CONGRATULATIONS on your first day at the quilt shop, too. Have you already spent your first paycheck? Heh-heh-heh. :o) You SHOULD teach a class on this. I bet they'd love it, and you could make your next one while teaching.

The smile on your face is so big that it's hard to see your new blouse! Just kidding! You're working in the fabric store to be near the fabric, right? Of course it's not to make extra money! I am sure your stash is going to be growing in beauty and size. Great review and I am so glad to see you sewing and looking so pretty and happy! And..... of course you got compliments at the quilt store! :-)

Peggy, I love it! And look at you standing there beaming, surrounded by beautiful fabric!! No wonder you got lots of compliments from the customers. They might convince you to run a few classes yet! I love how the stripes work with this pattern. You did a fantastic job and it looks great on you.

Pretty shirt, especially with the play on stripes.

Love it! That is so cool! I love the hem and the sleeves, very stylish without being over the top. As for the 3 machines, it sounds like you have the work split up very well. Maybe i should move one of mine for a bit of a workout ;-)

What a FUN, upbeat Review, Peggy!! Neat shirt!! (Looks like something I'd "end up with" by making just a "few" mistakes on a project :/). Enjoy wearing it--the comfort and the compliments will abound ;)
