Oh, my, now what am I going to do? I want to make this T and the Vogue dress you posted. So many cool patterns; so little time. Lots of inspiration though, thanks to you !

These are just beautiful and so different from the run of the mill t-shirt. Have been thinking about getting this pattern and may now just add it to the stash. Thanks for such a helpful review

Your versions are far more impressive than the envelope photo. You have such a great sense of color and pattern play.

Thank you for an excellent review with all your tips which I'll use when I sew up this cute pattern. I love the fabrics you chose. Great mix and I especially love the orange zip.

Thank you everyone! Your comments warm the little cockles of my heart :) marec I really do measure as a M...even in between M & L at the waist & hips. Different body types, I guess... Billie Jean you're absolutely right about the presser foot - the machine I usually use for knits does not have this :(, and I was too lazy to switch the thread over to my straight stitch machine for the zipper. Shoulda/coulda/woulda....

You look wonderful in these gorgeous tops, and it sounds as though you had tons of fun with the construction process.

What great creativity with your tops, Jillian. The fabric colors and combinations are wonderful and made even more interesting with the split fabric front. I like your ideas for a summer top version. Enjoy wearing!

I love both versions. Excellent choice and use of fabric. Perfect fit. Thanks for the great review. It will be a good reference when I finally make this pattern.

Oh I love these, especially the one with the orange zip. If you have this feature on your machine, decrease the pressure on your pressure foot when you're sewing knits and it will almost entirely eliminate the need to lift the pressure foot to release the fabric that builds up and causes those little "tucks".

oh I love these tops, especially the orange zipped one beautiful - I have pattern calling to me from my stash - just need more hours in the day

Super cute on you! I love the mix of patterns...what an inspiration for me. Hey, you must measure as a small because these fit very well, and in fact, have some ease through the back.
