Dear Zero Cleavage Kind of Woman: This neckline is BEAUTIFUL on you, necklace or no necklace. Now, of course, I LOVE it with the necklace. (You have some really pretty jewelry.) I hope you're getting lots of wear out of BOTH of these tops. AND I do have some uneven, wide-striped fabric that I bet would work for this top. Of course, it won't like like THIS on me -- ha! I've always liked this pattern, though, and I'm glad I finally got to see it made up. :o)

Looking good! It's all about the fit, no boxiness here (which is so easy to do in tunic land), but nice and flowy and a color combo that really flatters you. Good job.

Lovely top! I like how you accented the neckline with the lighter stripe.

Great top and lovely fabric and styling. I love Treadle Yard Goods -- my old stomping ground when I lived in MN:)

I love it! Fabulous! And look how perfectly you centered those stripes with the skinny one going right down CF and the wider ones balanced perfectly left and right. That is some great fabric.

I know it gets tedious reading "how cute! great job! love it!", ect., but you're just going to have to deal with it!! All of the above!

This top looks great on you! I just love the style.

Very nice. You're right - it works well in that fabric, and jewellery is essential (if the neck is worn open).

I really like this striped version. And you're right, the necklace fills in that space perfectly. The burning question for me, though, is did you make those pants? They are CUTE!

This is a really cute tunic on you! I love it styled with the cami and leggings. Nice sewing!

Nice work, Barb! I really love it with the cami and leggings. That extra placket was a stroke of brilliance. It's a great look on you and it's beautifully sewn.

Very nice tunic. Love that color on you. I agree about lining linen, makes it look so much nicer.

Beatiful top! Great color on you. I like how you "fixed" the placket. It looks like it was meant to be that way.

Great tunic -- the placket fix looks like it was meant to be there -- very nicely done. I really like how just a little bit of the lining shows at the neck, sort of like a contrast collar.

beautiful - what nice fabric.

Beautiful color looks so nice, you can even wear it with straight leg slim pants and flats for work. Love the details of the felled seams, placket and ties. The cami adds interest and can be another color accent picking up the yellow weft or orange warp in a deeper or lighter color. So much you can do with this tunic.

I think it looks great too - fit, style and color! What nice workmanship. I agree that linen is lovely to sew.

I am loving this Barb! I think it's a flattering color on you, and it looks quite stylish with all your thoughtful details. I have this pattern and you have totally inspired me to make it!

Great color for you and a very stylish look. Check out the pattern photo--a necklace like that would be perfect. It's as though your chest is an unpainted canvas (created by the open vee of the neckline), and either the cami or the necklace would be perfect--two very different but equally good choices. I love the length, too. You've hit this right out of the ballpark (but don't you usually do that?).

Great tunic, and so flattering on you with the cami. newmama's suggestion is also good-a necklace may be an alternative.

This is a nice tunic, and it looks so comfortable too. The color looks really nice on you.

This tunic looks great on you. Love your details on the alterations you made, and your attitude.

newmama said...
Great job--I'm really impressed by how you fixed the inside placket where the neckline fell open! I agree that maybe it's a little bare without a cami, but a necklace would be another option if you're not opposed. Or the cami looks nice too :)
