All of your tops look great on you! The fit is awesome! Thanks for the thorough review and all of your great tips!

Gorgeous. I've made this twice in plain fabric so it's great to see patterned fabric works great too. I love the rolled hem, I'm pinching that idea. : )

Beautiful top and impeccable fit!

CarolynGM said...
All are lovely. That's an impressive array of alterations you devised to achieve what looks like excellent fit.

Look lovely - all of them. Thanks for the review and tips - have the pattern and am going to get to it - soon I hope!

Beautiful! Isn't this pattern awesome? I have made both this version and the wrap version. I did a FBA on this version, but did not on the wrap, thanks to the heads up on front width from other PR reviews. This is definitely a TNT pattern for me, and I am basing most of my knit top wardrobe on it. I think this will be a favorite pattern for 2007! I'm planning on posting my wrap version soon.

Love it! And I love the groovy fabric you used! Where does one get "buttermilk knit". I want some!

Soleil, buttermilk knits can be found at . Beware, the website can be addictive :) .

Love this top on you and love such a helpful review and the work you did to clarify your instructions. ANd I got a giggle about the serger I"m testing and re-testing, I sometimes wonder who said serging was quick:-)

Your tops are beautiful. You've done a great job with the fit. I've got this pattern on my list. Thanks for a great review and many wonderful tips.

I love it! Glad to see that the neckline is reasonable, too. I have one in my SWAP but haven't started it yet...thanks for all the helpful info!

I have got to make this pattern from my stack waiting! They all turn out great! It doesn't look like you have any gaposis, either..

Thanks so much for going thru all the did you ever decide that series of manipulations would create the perfect fit??? All the modifications are relatively subtle (except the addition of length)...but what a difference.

Thanks - great visuals! Gail

This is certainly a good style for you. It was worth your hour experimenting w/ the hem; it came out very nicely.

I love your versions of this! Isn't it a great pattern? I just made 2 more also!

All of these are so cute! I love the new version, perfect with your bag and denim capris. What pattern did you use for the capris?

Beve said...
Pretty, pretty! And nicely fitted and sewn too...

Very cute! I have that pattern and had never noticed that simple version.

Pretty tops!

OK, Now I Really Have To make this one! BTW, I think you're wrong about the figure flaws - you don't really have any because they're in my mirror. I *am* fixin' to send them away ...
7/14/07 8:32 PM
Karla Kizer said...
Okay, so when did long legs become a flaw? You want flaw? Try an inseam that's 6" less than your waist measurement. The top is darling. Everyone has had such success with this pattern and yours is no exception.

Vonnevo said...
Kathy, your tops are gorgeous. I really must sew some of these for summer.
7/14/07 9:10 PM
Sharon M said...
This pattern produced another winner! The fabric you choose for this last one is wonderful. And I *wish* I had your figure flaws, LOL!

Gorgeous top and a gorgeous figure!. You look so good in everything you have reviewed!
