Love your description of the pattern. I think it's cute in that fabric. I would be getting those sleeves caught in everything, though!

I was really intruigued by this top in the pattern books, but was afraid the sleeves would be overwhelming. Your top looks great!

I love this shirt in the print you choose. I too have this pattern and just haven't found the right fabric to make it out of...

I think the blouse looks fine with the bright fabric. Good job.

I think I made something with similar sleeves back in the eighties. Love it in the print.

I really like the neckline on this pattern - and you're right about the chef hat sleeves! Thanks for the fun review!

I have this pattern and haven't been able to decide what fabric to use. I LOVE the bright floral version--it's so much fun. I chose the pattern originally because I once saw a fashion director from one of the big magazines wearing a white matelasse jacket that looked a lot like this, and it was really cute. I think silk organza would be pretty cool, too.

ARe you kidding? It's adorable on you! Don't doubt your choice of fabrics, I was trying to imagine you in the white cotton version, and I just couldn't. Keep on with your cool fabric choices!!!

Another cute top - you have been sewing like crazy and must have an entire new wardrobe.

I actually think the fabric makes it look young and cute - very RTW. I would have never picked this pattern because it looks too funky on the envelope . You obviously have better vision than I do. Nice job

Your shirt turned out cute!! It looks better than the pattern cover :o) Great review, too!

Hmmm. You're right about the chef hat thing. And you make it look a lot better than on the pattern picture. Must be your great fabric choice :-). That was a fairly crisp cotton wasn't it? It'd have to be crips to get the chef thing going, you'd have a fallen souffle if you went drapy :-).

If you watch 24, this is the same neckline as Marilyn's silky shiny blue blouse, and you are right it looks good. The sleeves... they are so interesting looking that I almost want to make one just for something different. Thanks for your entertaining review!

Thanks for reviewing this; I was just wondering which pattern you use. I really like your neckline and sleeve construction, and it seems to fit you perfectly. Beautiful work!
