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.

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.
