Very nice! I agree with Gigi, I've never seen knits like that at my Walmart or Joanns.

I love your versions of this-great idea to make a matching skirt! I especially like the black and white knit with the lengthened sleeves. Nice job!

Yes I think we all love this top so much we never get tired of seeing them! I'm making one at the moment and actually decided to take the back facing off after I sewed it and then just turned the material over and top stitched - it looks much better so I think you just did the right thing first time around! Love the fabric choice and they seemed to turn out pretty well! Thanks!

What nice prints. I love what you did with both your tops as well as the matching skirt. I really must check out the Wal-Mart $1 table some time.

How pretty! For a minute I thought you'd lengthened it into a dress. How come I never find cute knits like that at JoAnn's?

Both tops look great. I also have the CJ Basewear pattern, and a matching skirt is a great idea. That is if I EVER make the twist top. ;o)

I love seeing these tops too. Your fabrics look great in this style and the skirt is also very pretty .

Cute tops, I love it with the skirt! That was a quite a bargain from Walmart because it looks great!

I'm never tied of looking at these twist tops. Pictures are great and I love the fabric.
