Great review and great job on your top. I love the way the fabric shading highlights the seamlines of the pattern. I want to give this one a try too!

Thank you for your review, I just picked up this pattern yesterday and was wondering if anyone had tried it. Looking forward to it!

I love the use of vertical graduated colour. It makes a good top into a great one.

I love this top! The gradations of color show off the seaming really well.

Reply to MNBarb - the jersey has a fair amount of stretch, as much as specified on the pattern envelope (35%). Since I cut down a size, the stretch is really needed.

I love the shape and intesting seam detail of this top. Is your fabric stretch jersey or just jersey. It looks like is has nice recovery and is perfect for this pattern. Hmm, KS is on sale at Hancock's soon.

What an intriguing top! I love the way the fabric's pattern shifts with the different design elements. Bet you get a lot of comments like, 'Where did you get that top??"

Great top in an interesting fabric. I do like the seaming on this top and it looks great on you.
