Love it Melissa. Thanks for the tip on the length.

Great top! Your layout/cut out of fabric with consideration to the fabric design, really makes this an up to date piece and a very flattering one too!

Beautiful top, SP, and I think I prefer it with the long sleeves. Your fabric is gorgeous and you've done a bang up job of matching peaks and valleys. Thanks for the notice on the shortness, and I agree with Fuzzygalore about raising that armhole a tad, which should help eliminate the top-raising-with-arms thing. Lovely, Lily

Really cute, I must try this top. I love how you have used the fabric.

Really cute, and I know what you mean about cute puffy sleeves at this season :-). But you might consider raising the armhole instead of just making it longer next time you make it - the whole thing following the arm up is really an armhole issue.
