Just love your tops.The pleating detail is one I'll use too.

Really cute top you made and what a price. I am another $1 table fan as well. It just makes trying a new pattern or working out fit issues so affordable.

I just finished this top and other than it being about 4 sizes too big, I just love it. I'll try again using some of your suggestions. Oh yeah, I'm 56 so you go girl!

Lovely top! Definitely doesn't look like a 2-buck top.

Man, this is so ELEGANT done up in the black, I LOVE it! I predict it will look great on your 52-year-old body, too!

You must be my sister from another mother! This is not the first time that you made something for your dtr that I also made for mine. It fit my dtr the same way with the bodice (too short), but my dtr did like the length the way it was. I also did not like the fold in half sleeve or the neckline fold. And I too use $1.00 yard from Walmart for muslins and yes the ladies know me and love to see me coming. And the one I made for my DD was a wearable muslin. She loved it. Unlike you, I KNOW the pattern won't work for my 51 year old body.LOL

I'm always on the lookout for a good top. This is special and congrats for saving so much $$.

Cute muslin (oh, how I wish my Wmart still had decent fabrics)! Do try the pleats, too! I use this trick a lot for removing the maternity feel and it makes a difference. Cute pattern...I can't believe I don't have this one. Thanks for the CS inspiration! ;)

Very nice looking top - have this pattern and am going to try this myself with the pleats and hope I don't look as if I am "with child" - long past that stage of life LOL

This turned out great! I'm glad your daughter will wear it!

$2 for a great top that was supposed to be an experiment is very inspiring. That is the sort of thing that keeps us trying this craft.

So cute! And for 2 bucks? WOW!

This is great looking top, don't you just love muslins that turn out to be wearable for such a good price too!
