Wow! That's a really nice top. Very unique, with its ruching-style gathers and V-neck together in the same top. Wear it to Baltimore! ;)

I was really curious how this one would come out. I like it! I'll put it on my sewing list for fall.

I really like that top and your addition of sleeves makes it very work appropriate. Great job.

Very nice top, and very nice fabric, your right about the photo in the magazine, it is very easy to overlook this top.

Gorgeous! I love that fabric. This is a definite keeper. I will need to look at that pattern again.

ooh yours is so nice!! This one really stuck out for me from the At A Glance sheet, I couldn't believe it was so overlooked in the photoshoot... So much space for changing around the sleeves, too!

Karen, this looks great! Your fabric, together with the design, make this into a really classy and stylish top. Very nice work!

I love this! I'm still waiting for my June BWOF to arrive but when it does I'm definitely making this top, after reading your review.

Oh, I really like this! I saw this pattern on the website and was not too gung-ho about it either. But with the last two reviews, I've seen, I really like it! Hopefully, I'll receive my June issue soon and can start cranking some things out.

I really like this. I might be persuaded to buy this issue of BWOF if it ever makes it my B&N!

I love your version of this top. I am inspired by your fabric choice and will keep it in mind when I sew up my Fall/Winter (sleeves) version.
