Debbie, this looks great on you! And with the skirt, you've got a wonderful ensemble. I like your method on the foldover too.

I've been on the fence about this pattern (I love the look, but wasn't sure how the foldover would break above my bust), but based on your version, this is a very cute, flattering pattern. I have some of that same fabric in my stash, too!

Another winner, Debbie! I just ..almost..finished my first Jalie top and am impressed with the fit, the drafting, the instructions. You've given me another to make. Another great tutorial, too. Thanks for all of the time you put into your reviews!

I love the foldover version of your top, your fabric choice, the contrasting neckband, and the wide hem bottom. Great to hear that you can use the sweetheart pattern sleeves perfectly, too. Great review, great top!

Love your top!! That fabric is wonderful also. My 12 dd said "Cool". Looks like I will be picking up another Jalie!

I love your top. This is a pattern I keep meaning to buy. I had to chuckle at your alterations. I have high rounded back and sloping shoulders, so I guess I won't have to make any alterations!

I love your top, Debbie, and it looks great with the unusual looking skirt. Thanks for all the information about how you constructed it.

Cute shirt! Thanks for the info on the sleeves - I like the sweetheart top sleeves much better.

Very nice Debbie. The fabric is perfect for the pattern and it's great with the skirt. It's versatile and very stylish. Great job!

Love this outfit Debbie - very attractive. I've made a top from BWOF with a foldover section like this and a tutorial was previously done by another PR member which was v. helpful - too lazy to go & find the issue- its nearly midnight LOL. Anyway, after all that I rhink the Jalie one is great. Dear little dog.

I can't take it anymore. I must have this pattern. Love your version, Debbie, and love that fabric, too! Gotta try that neckline trim!

Nice top Debbie. Thanks again for the neckline tutorial. Your neckline looks very polished.

GREAT top and super review and hints. What pattern did you use for the skirt? It looks vaguely familiar, but I can't place it!

Great top...and skirt. Love the fold-over instructions. The print is fabulous. Can't wait to see pics of you sporting your new outfit.

Thanks very much for the instructions on how to sew the foldover down by machine - I did that and it worked perfectly.

I promised no more patterns until I sew something- and here you have me break this resolution with two. Your new top is simply wonderful and to know the sleeves of the two patterns can change out well that is just too great to know.

Love this green version, Debbie! (And your green shoes, and your green walls...) Another green-hater, I see! ;) Anyway, thanks for the tip about the sleeves and the reminder about the high back neck...I recall this problem, too, on the sh top.
