This looks SO MUCH BETTER on you than on the envelope. I would have never picked this one, but now I might have to!

Great job! Originally I wasn't too impressed with the photo on the pattern but then I see your creation - and now I want to buy this pattern.

I hear ya on unsolicited compliments from teenagers. Very rare to come by so that's a testament to how stylish this top is.

I looked at this pattern and now I am very interested. Great blouse and looks comfy.

Your top is really nice. The diagonal stripe is very upscale RTW in its appearance. And, yes, getting compliments from 14 yr olds does speak volumes in a positive way.

Very cute top - I never would have guessed from the pattern envelope that it makes up so nicely. And that is a really eye-catching fabric!
