Thats incredibly lovely. I've got some silk jersey, and I think I might give this top a go. Thanks for the review.

Am thinking about trying this pattern, for me. I sew alot for my daughter, but she's in college now and I might have time to sew for myself.

Gorgeous top! I love the color (even tho it's not what you had planned). It's a great top, isn't it?

I think this top is quickly becoming THE "twist top" of several years ago...the top that was flattering on everyone! The color on this is so lovely..lucky daughter! Wonderful work on a tricky fabric!

This is a lovely top, and I love the colour also! I actually prefer it in the solid colur to the patterns print. You see the detail better.

Well this is becoming a popular top (I'm wearing mine right now!), so interesting to see all the versions of it. Really lovely fabric and finishing on yours..

That colour couldn't be more perfect (for me) if you had tried. I loved the way it turned out. Wear it with pride!

Sorry the color didn't work out the way you had hoped --but I, on the other hand, absolutely LOVE it!!! Wonderful job!

Love!love!love! those 'ribbon-tie' look at the waist, very feminine. The fabric colour is gorgeous too. You have done a marvellous work at dyeing & sewing the silk jersey and it is really worthwhile...well done, Birgitte!

I simply MUST make this top! The color is beautiful; I can't believe you dyed it yourself. Great work.
