This top is fabulous on you. I have this pattern in my stash just waiting to be sewn up. The color is very pleasing on you. Thanks for a great review.

Just pulled this pattern out to see what others have done with it. Your review gives me a great idea for a novelty knit in stash that I had no clue how to use. Thanks for the hem tips. I love your version!

Thank heavens I do tend to follow you on your reviews--I think our body sizes are similar but you are def the better and more prolific sewer! Love that Red on you and TY 4 the review. I keep pulling this pattern out but I just keep looking @ it. U motivate me to sew it up!

What a great top! I love the color you choose for it and wouldn't have imagined that pattern would produce such a wonderful result!

I like this top pattern too! Made it in black knit with contrasting floral knit for collar and added cuffs. Using it for a horse show shirt and added stones to accent the collar and cuffs! Also rounded the bottom hem like you did!

WOW I love this color on you and what beautiful fabric!!! I have this pattern too and really like it. I made view D too but will alter the pattern next time because I didn't like the way the back neckline lay loosely over the back of your neck. (it's not attached to the back!) Now after seeing your version I will try it again for my fall line up. Beautiful top and thanks for the inspiration!

Annette, I love this top. This color is a winner on you but I think you know this. Make view D too, just to make Mom smile.

What's not to like from something that looks that good???

That shade of red is delicious and quite perfect for you! I love this style What I especially like about this is that, although it is a knit top, it looks very smart and elegant and could be worn with the right skirt and accessories to look very dressed up. Or, or course, with a pair of jeans, it makes a stunning looking go anywhere kind of top! You've got me wanting this pattern now!

What wonderful, wonderful fabric and what a perfect style to show it off. I just love it, and that pin goes so well with it! I'm a fan of turned-up collars, so I like the shot of this with the collar turned up and the pin keeping things together and looking just perfect. Another beautiful job! I hope you find the pattern so you can make millions of these for yourself.

My main question is," How many positive reviews does one need to receive 5 stars?" I ask this in seriousness, for I always want to be the one that rolls your 4 stars over to five. Perhaps you need tons. LOL! Anyway, this red wool knit top is a 5 star garment to me. The red is perfect on you and the pattern /fabric/workmanship/and model are perfect!!! You can't do better than this top. This busty little number needs to join you and sfshaza in making this pattern up. Shams will have it made before I buy it. LOL.

Very pretty fabric, color and pattern. You look lovely in it and wear red well. The collar close-up shot reveals the beauty of the fabric. Hm....I'm going to follow your link to Denver Fabrics!

What a great red top ! I hope you find your pattern so that you can make it again ;-)

Red is definitely YOUR color and your mom was so RIGHT that this style looks great on a "busty little number" ! Your reviews always make me smile and I always learn something new. I like the top all three ways - so nice to have such cute options!

It's so flattering! I admire your resolve to sew winter clothes in the dead heat of summer!

WOW!! You were born to wear red - gorgeous top on you

Love the color and texture of your knit fabric. The collar looks great turned up or down. The fit is perfect. BTW, I am relieved to hear that other people also lose things in their sewing rooms!

Beautiful! What a great choice of fabric, too.

Love you in that red - another great-looking top.

Love this top! I'm a busty little number too, so I love to see what works on you. I'm going to buy this pattern. :D
