The stripes take the top to a whole new level. This is an idea I will steal someday!

Carol, I used 1/4" - I think the thicker stuff would have been too controlling.

Did you use the 1/4" or the 3/8" clear elastic?

This top looks GREAT on you! The vertical stripes are very flattering. Your use of the clear elastic is a very helpful tip.

Kay I'm totally with you on the change to back neckline - I plan to do the same thing.

Fabulous as always! I'm re-making this right now with the lower stripes placed vertically, and I'm so glad you reviewed yours - I love the stripes! -Ann

When I saw your picture, first thing I thought was: clever placement of the stripes! And that was an accident?! Fortuitous indeed!

Very cute, love the stripes. I think this top has looked great on everyone that has reviewed it, but unfortunately, it just wouldn't work for me, but maybe my daughter. Thanks for the detailed review.

The way you placed the stripes makes it a very flattering top.
