What a lovely top! I just think you can't go wrong with yellow! Very nicely done!

Such a pretty style made up in georgette. Super job. I think it looks lovely on you except I'm sad not to see your head! I too laughed at MNBarb's wadder solution --too funny.

Dear Headless, I mean Christa.....your top is simply TDF. I love the style, the fabric, the color, and the beading. I also like this amount of ease as opposed to the oversized look on the pattern front. When you lengthen the waistline, you'll have another nice look to enjoy and choose from. Use up all those more sheer fabrics with this adorable pattern.

I love the top and sheer fabric you used! My restraint in not buying patterns this weekend is due to my right arm being broken and I am can't drive or sew! otherwise.....

I love it, Christa! It's just perfect in every way, and it sounds like the inside is as pretty as the outside. So funny that all of us relate so well to your story about the patterns. Me too . . . all attempts at self-restraint are doomed from the start. I'm looking forward to seeing more versions of this. MNBarb's comment made me laugh. Maybe I'll try a few satisfying bonfires with wadders in the woodstove this winter!

Love the fabric and style on you such a great pattern for georgette or any silky fabric. Your so right it is flattering and feminine. What a nice addition to anyone's wardrobe.

I love your blouse! I tried on a silk chiffon RTW blouse in this exact style today. It was gorgeous but they wanted $200! I bought this Vogue pattern instead. See, you are saving money going back to buy those patterns. :) I hope to make myself one in the near future so your review is very timely. Thanks!

Christas I love this on you and you have made me finally decide to buy this pattern - it has been much reviewed and all others look beautiful but yours really "speaks" to me so next sale and I am in. Thanks for such a helpful review

That is so pretty. I just checked my list of Vogues for the next sale and added this one..thanx a lot! Can't wait to see the next one....

My dearest little headless Christa, you should make LOTS AND LOTS of these tops! I really like yours mucho bettero than the ones on the models, because you've sized yours down to JUST the right amount of ease. :o) AND the beads on the ties are such a PROFESSIONAL touch! GREAT idea, too, of tracing off that dang bias strip piece. I always WISH I'd done that when I want to use some bias trim, but HAVEN'T, and can't ever remember where I saw the pattern piece -- ha!

Thanks, everyone, for the really nice comments! MNBarb, that is HILARIOUS!!! Wish I had been there along with Ms. Burda to see that!!!

Cute! I never noticed that pattern before. I can so relate to the pattern buying! lol
MNBarb said... (9/7/11 10:26 PM) Reply
Oh sure Christa, I practiced lots of self-restraint during the pattern sale and this, and another Vogue that was more flow-y, were put back in the drawer. Now you go and make this REALLY cute top and I don't have the pattern. It is not too-too cute, just right. I like the yellow and can tell it's a good color for you, even without your head! PS, yes I have wadders. My worst went into the woodstove; pattern, fabric and all, poof, up in flames. It was so gratifying. I wish Ms Burda had been here to see it.

Your top is wonderful! I like your addition of the beads. I have this pattern and need to make it. I can relate to your thoughts of patterns not purchased and going back to buy them.

Great advice about the needle! A really darling transition top.

Okay, that settles it. I'm buying this pattern. Thanks for the info about the too-short-waistedness . . . I'll have to deal with that.

That is so cute!

Lovely! I adore this style too. I must make this pattern!

Nice job. I am LOL'ing at the "thinking about the patterns you didn't buy" part. I am so like that too.
