Your top is so cute! I'm working on one for me right now and by golly, all that gathering doesn't make for a quick top at all. I hope mine is as cute as yours when it's all finished.

I'm in the middle of doing the yoke on this pattern and your review is really helpful. It's great to see another view of it than the one on the envelope. You did such a great job on it and it does look much better than the one on the enveolpe. Great job!

Thank you everyone - such nice comments! I think the time-consuming gathering is worth it but just be prepared for it. I appreciate the comments about it looking RTW too since that is not always easy to achieve!

This is sooo cute, but then I'm not sure there's anything that wouldn't look cute on you!

yes, your shirred yoke does NOT look homemade. It looks really professional and RTW. I love the top and will buy the pattern despite what everyone says about this shirring being a pain!

I don't know which version I like best--both are very cute! The yoke detail is especially pretty.

Fabulous top! I especially love the neckline and I always love your fabric choices.

The gathering may have been time-consuming but the result is wonderful.

Another great piece from you. I just love little details. Thanks for bringing my attention to this pattern. I never looked twice at it before!

Darling top! You will stay cool and LOOK cool in those hot Idaho summers.

This is SO cute on you! I love the fabric with the design of the top. Great job!

I love the top worn both ways, too. Your fabric is perfect. Great job on the shirred yoke. You seem to have a knack for accessorizing, too.
