Thanks for the tips on how you constructed this garment. The photos of your lovely shirts make me want to run out and buy this pattern.

Great review - I love your top. I always forget to try a contrast binding. It's a great look.

I like seeing positive reviews for patterns I recently bought! Thanks for all of the information in your review; I'll be certain to reference it when I go to make this up.

Great review -- all three tops are lovely. I will try your fine bias tape tip on the next one I make.

Great review and lovely tops. I'm taking Sarah V's knits class next month and this pattern is now at the top of my list for my first knit project. My luck with knits has been somewhat limited; perhaps because I've never used stabilizers. Thanks so much for such a thorough review - it helps a lot!

Love your fabric! This top looks like a candidate for Tried and True--TNT!

Those are the cutest tops I've seen recently. I quickly wrote down the pattern number and I intend to buy it! I love the princess seams on the front of view C. Great job and beautiful fabrics.

This was a great review! So much useful information that I printed it & am tucking into the patten envelope. Your tops are all lovely. I especially love views A & C.

I love your tops and fabric choices, especially view C and your review is very helpful. I guess I'll have to give this one a try. Thanks.

This is a terrific review! I am a long time sewer but have had trouble with rayon knits and ended up trashing 2 expensive EOSrayon lycra knit tops. I am going to try your tips on the 2 pieces of rayon lycra knit from EOS that i have left in my stash. In fact your review is so wonder ful I am going to print it out for reference. The tops look wonderful and professional. Thanks for all the great tips

People have commented that the princess seams draw too much attention to the bust. I am still a little afraid to try it myself, but your version looks lovely.

I wish I had known this pattern sewed up so pretty when I *didn't* buy it on sale this weekend... grrr... Beautiful tops one and all!

Lovely tops! It is helpful to see all 3 versions with the variety of knits. Thank you for the fusible tape tips & including your sources. Just one question about interfacing the sleeve cap, as this is a new concept to me-- where exactly do you interface and how far down the cap do you put the interfacing? Thanks for the helpful review.

Carol, checked out your homepage. You have created a wonderful room. I saw the pretty trees out the window. I was curious where in CA you were. You've done some amazing tayloring work.
