Your linen print version is my favorite of any of the Sorbettos I've seen! Is there any chance you could post pictures of how you accomplished the ruffle? I'm having a hard time visualizing and would love to copy yours.

Tina, I added pictures to my flickr account showing how the ruffle is made. I really like the idea too. You can keep it on both sides or just do one side if you like an A-symetrical look :-)

Both are lovely tops and a great tutorial. I suspect you may have inspired a few more versions of these with your helpful review :)
