Great top - nice colors for you, and thanks for the info on the knot instructions. I haven't tried one of the knot tops for fear I wouldn't be able to figure it out, so it's good to know the instructions are helpful (as I think I have this pattern in stash too.) Did you buy your fabric at the sale? I got my ITY there and ALMOST bought the same fabric you did. I love that ITY and would like to find more on sale!

Great review! I was looking at this pattern, I just hadn't "made the move" yet. You have inspired me to get moving on this. Your top looks just wonderful on you!

Lovely results - a great top and you look great in it - plus the bonus of only one yard of fabric. I may have to try this pattern.

What a gorgeous top. When I go through these reviews, any I really like I copy the picture and paste on my desktop. I am definitely going to put this one as a must have on my list. You did a great job!

VERY cute top!!! I love this pattern. I've made the dress and it's one of my favorite summer pieces! I was just considering doing up the top the other day. Great minds........ ;)

Boy, this top pattern is worth the price of admission all by itself! I particularly like that while it may be somewhat low (it does NOT look too low, by the way, but I know what you mean ... always looks lower when you're looking down on it :o), yet it's not going anywhere, no gaps, et cetera, so you don't have to fidget with it. This really looks nice on you! I get the dress would be just as flattering, too. I wonder if I have this pattern? :o)

This twist top looks wonderful on you! The lettuce edges are a very nice touch, and what a great print you picked!

Nice top. The lettuce edge just adds that little extra to make it even cuter.

Awesome top! I love the fabric, too.

That is a dynamo look for you! Love the lettuce edge and the twist. You are stylin!

You'd think we'd have seen enough twist top patterns by now, but no. I'm always open to a new one, and this one looks really good. I love the fabric you used, it looks great on you, and the lettuce edge is a nice touch.

Wow! I *really* like this one. The color is great for you. I think that pattern should be a TNT. It's very nice looking.

Your knit top looks wonderful on you. Love the fabric you chose. Great idea on the lettuce hem. I need to start using that for my hems...quick and easy. Great job!
