Deepika, had you not mentioned you were wearing a cami, I would not have know the difference as I had not looked at the pattern photo! I thought it was a fooler type top ... really nice effect!

Thanks everyone for such nice comments. For a moment I thought that was a wadder, but after reading your comments, I am encouraged to try another one of these! Sandra thats a great tip on using different colored camis for this top. I am dying to make a red cami now. Cynthia I've written a tip on how to stabilize with clear elastic and added it to my review. Hope this helps.

I love your version, I made mine in buttermilk and plan to make one in something sheer for the layered look

Glad to see you're back with a review! :) The cami picks up the gray in the print. They look good together. Your top does look a lot like the pattern photo! Fine work.

Deepika, love the top and the cami under. My 17 yo dd wears camisoles under many tops. Thanks for the great review.

Thanks for the review, Deepika. I have DGD's who would love this shirt! The cami under looks Waaaay Coooool! I wonderful colors in the fabric, and the cami in different colors for different looks is a great idea! (Love the sleeves!)

love this fabric. what a beautiful shirt it turned out to be! oh, and to hide the "whiskers" on fabric when doing a rolled edge, just use water soluable stabilizer. i keep a batch on hand cut into 1" strips just for this sort of thing.

The cami and top look great together! And, the layered look has even made it to Idaho:)

very nice top! Layering of tops is very in here in California. Love the fabric. I'm going to be in NYC for a few days this summer with DD and I MUST go to spandex house.

Pretty shirt, I was just looking at this in the catalog! Neat to see it made up, and it looks great with the cami.

Your top looks great Deepika. The cami looks good with it too. In fact, with all the colours in the fabric, you can use different colours for your camisole with this top.

Vavavoom! I love what you did with this fabric! I too am seeing layers everywhere so the cami idea is totally '04.

The layered-look is in in in with the fashion forward right now. Your v-neck over cami look is right there.
