I love black & white then add the gingham check and it equals a really lovely top!

This is so cute!! I like that it has a back to it (I cant wear things that just wrap around my neck!!) so perhaps I will get this pattern. Very retro!!

love your interpretation. you can pull off this 60's style just like Mia Farrow! I would look like a big frump. But you are runway ready as always!

This is super cute - I had not noticed the pattern before. I too love the pockets. Great looking top, and funny review ("shelving unit" - HA HA). Keep them coming!

The pockets make it... my vote is in: Fabulous outcome. Bring on Ricky and you are ready for the candy assembly line episode

This is SO Lucy, it's adorable! Is your next review going to be for a pair of those white pedal-pushers?

Absolutely fabulous! I love your hair cut short- you look 10 years younger!

What a charming 50s look you've created. Great bias pockets.

It's cute! For the buttonholes, you can use the zig zag stitch on your sewing machine, with different stitch widths and lengths, to make your own button hole. I read about this in an article, I think in Threads magazine, a few years ago. Since my machine's "automatic" buttonhole looks rotten, I use that technique instead. The thing I have the most trouble with is getting the buttonholes a consistent size, since I'm relying on my markings and my eye.

I like the cutaway back as well, and your pockets are adorable. Thanks for the buttonhole tip.
