Love the black edging and the bling. This top suits you!

A nice top. There's nothing like a walk on the wild side sometimes.

Very nice, and well fitting.

Listen, in lieu of actually being 20 years younger and 50 lbs. lighter, I would take feeling 20 years younger and 50 lbs lighter any day!!! That's a good thing. Now, this top is really smashingly good looking on you, and the picot foldover elastic edging and crystals are just the perfect touch, so thanks for that close up. Very nice!

Leopard is one of the big fall trends. I usually think I will like Khaliah Ali patterns, but they just don't seem to fit me well. This one looks great on you.

Well, meow, don't you look just stunning! I hadn't wanted to check out this pattern; but, now I believe I will! Excellent job!

The leopard print looks fantastic on you and I love the bling on the neckline.

This is gorgeous, I love that fabric and the crystals on the neckline are an inspired touch that make this top something really special.

Terrific top, Cathy. Love the FOE and the bling. I'm sure you'll enjoy wearing it.

Your top looks great on you. It's fun to go out of our comfort zone sometimes, especially when it pays off like yours did.

Love it! I agree that walking on the wild side is a good thing...we certainly need it sometimes. The FOE is brilliant to help any gaposis problems. I also feel your pain with the feeling 20 yrs younger and 50 lbs lighter until you see a pic of yourself. Boy do I feel that pain!

I can relate to the picture thing-well spoken. Your top looks great on you. Animal prints are all over the mall in all size ranges ,so your walk on the wild side will be a very fashionable stroll.

I like how you added the black binding to the top! Very cute!

I really like the top on you, Cathy. And I thank you for the review. You have put another pattern into my 'for consideration' pile.

Good call on the sleeves. I like yours much better than the originals.

Your top looks great! I am loving the Khaliah Ali patterns, so your review is helpful. I *love* that you included "The Bling" as I have a hard time with creativity in that dept.

I love the touch of bling!

This looks great on you and I like the bling! I must remember to do that myself. Good job on the replacement sleeves, they suit you very well. I think you should walk on the wild side more often!!
