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.
