I like all the versions, but I like the proportions better with the longer sleeves. This is a very versatile pattern.

I love the orange one. Definitely something that looks like a first grab out of the closet :-)

Wow! I like all three versions of this tunic. The orange one looks gorgeous on you.

Wow. I would not have given this pattern the time of day, thinking it would not be good for my figure. But, it looks fantastic on you. Many bringing this pattern to my attention.

wow! I like all three versions of your top. Sitting here tapping my toe, waiting fo the next vogue sale. :)

Nice version of this top! I love this pattern and I am wearing it right now. You are right, so comfortable, but interesting.

This looks wonderful on you -- both versions. You were wise to cut down the shoulders; it would probably look a little sloppy in the 'right' size.

Fabulous. I love what this pattern does to the stripes. The way the hem curls is perfect. This top looks great on you. The scarf is a nice touch. I'm glad I was your inspiration... now you have inspired me to make this pattern in a stripe.

I can see why you love this - it's smashing and comfortable - not often you find those two going together so well!! Must get this pattern

It looks fabulous! Well done. It would indeed be lovely in a printed chiffon.

That is just the cutest! I love that you let the hems curl up, it looks great with the stripe, and the scarf is a nice touch. I liked DorthyK's top too and now that I've seen yours I'm going to have that pattern!
