Cute top, looks great. (Thanks for the link to ITAdmin's review, also.) I like the interfacing idea.

Thanks for sharing your construction techniques for this great top. I don't think the top looks dated at all, as it has almost an identical silhouette to the new Jalie 2974 sweetheart top that has generated recent excitement. Looks very pretty on you. -Lily

Geez, I thought I was the only person left on the planet who didn't have a serger, and now I find out otherwise. :o) I love this top on you, not only the color, but how it shows off your slim waist to such advantage, as well. I don't think it looks dated at all. A lot of great tips, too (interfacing, hand stitching, tacking down bolero under arms).

Your top turned out great - it still looks trendy on you - a trendy t-shirt never goes out of style! : )

Okay, I've been putting off buying this pattern for some reason. Next time Vogue has a sale, it's mine. This looks really good on you, and I think while the bolero trend may have faded, the interesting t-shirt trend is eternal.

Great version of this top! Yours fits much better than mine does. I know what you mean abou the bolero thing... but since I'm always just clueing in to trends five years later (AND since it's so cute!) I'd keep wearing it, too.

It looks very pretty on you. Thanks for all the details on construction.

I adore this pattern and am amazed at how such a quick and simple pattern can look so posh!

Thank you! I have this pattern and I've been wondering how/if I could bring the neckline in a bit from those shoulders. Yours looks great.

You look really nice in this - have the pattern but haven't yet used - will keep your tips in mind when I do
