I agree this would be fabulous on you in solid with a matching pant. Now that you know this pattern, you can do the next one much quicker, especially if your fabric is less slippery. Maybe a rayon challis?

You can really wear this style!! I have seen ready to wear versions of this top that sell for big $$'s, and yours looks just as nice. I think it would look good with a short sleeve for summer too.

I agree, this *is* a cool top! And you should definitely consider sewing it again since it's so flattering on you. I can see it all one color, top to pants, and in different weights for different seasons. Don't worry about the see-thru. The camera often sees what we don't in real life and I bet that if you can't see thru the top in your mirror, neither can anyone else. Great review!

This is really a good look for you! You should consider making more in solid as well as print combinations!

Hi! What a nice flowy top. I live in Taipei (writing you from there now) and I just HAD to see what a "Taipei Top" was. Thanks for doing & reviewing this pattern!

Ditto what Lisa said. When I looked at your top the first word that came to me was "cool". Love the fabric, too, and it's very flattering on you. Good job, good review.
