I really like your top Lori! I just bought this pattern yesterday and I look forward to making it up (hopefully this week).

This is a fantastic looking top - much better than the pattern photo! Thanks for doing a review on this, I'm going to have to check it out now!

Wow, fabulous top. Yours looks much better than the one illustrated on the pattern sleeve! The finish around the band on the front is impeccable - very professional-looking. You've done a brilliant job.

Very stylish knit top (hardly a tunic, with its great fitting). I too like the front plain as it emphasizes your precise needlework.

Ohhhh, I like that. I think dd's would like it too! Another example of someone here creating something more attractive than the pattern envelope!

I like you unembellished verson and the shade of red you used. I don't think it needs anything to make it look striking. Your top looks really good.

Great looking top. It doesn't need embellishment--it looks beautiful the way it is.

Thanks for the wonderful comments. I am enjoying taking the pictures outside. time2sew - winter, oh, don't want to think about it! Maybe save all my pictures and do them in the snow, that would be pretty.

beautiful top. I too have this pattern and have yet to make it. I am glad to see it looks so nice in a plain knit!

Beautiful top! I agree that yours looks much better than the pattern photo.

Lori - beautiful top - am going to go for this as with the gathers in the front it should enhance my 'ahem' lack of frontage LOL. Love the colour you chose - should be dynamite on you.

Really nice top Lori.

Someone else beat me to it - i was going to comment on how you chose your clothing to coordinate with your roses - that's something I'd do! Lovely top.

That's really nice, and it would be soooo versatile! I could see about five of these making their home in my wardrobe, in various colours and contrasting bands!

Your top looks great. The color is beautiful. Thanks for this review.

That's a cute top. I wouldn't have thought an empire line would work here, but it came out great.

I like yours better than the pattern photos! Turned out beautiful and great review!

stunning! I love it! I always love your photos taken in the garden. What will you do for the winter shots?!

I love how coordinate the color of the top with the flowers underneath in your photo.Composition is clearly one of your strengths! I just got this pattern and I'm ready to give it a shot very soon.

I love your top, very pretty especially the color. Thanks so much for reviewing this pattern. It is sitting on my cutting table where it has been waiting for a couple of weeks because I have been a little afraid of the front band.

Great-looking top! Do you think this pattern would work if one has a large rib cage? I see it's a bit fitted there.
