I like your "fancy t-shirt" and I think I may copy you! I'd get more wear out of that shirt (because that IS a lot of work), than I would a dress.

Very cool, I was wondering if this would work as a shirt since I'm also not much of one for dresses. Thanks for showing that it can be done!

What a flattering shirt. I did a double take to figure out which was the envelope pattern and which was the homemade version. Great work.

Gorgeous top! Good idea to shorten this dress. All of your thread tracing paid off in this lovely result.

This looks great as a top! I love the looks of this pattern, but could never wear a dress that close-fitting over my tummy/hips/rear. I think I *could* wear it as a top, though. Love yours!

Oh man!! what a great idea. I too would get a lot more wear out of a shirt than the dress. Great idea and great job!

I'm just catching up on a week's worth of pattern reviews, and I'm SO GLAD I clicked on yours. I LOVE this shirt, even moreso than the dress on the pattern. It looks SO GOOD on you. :o) Very unique and flattering.

You did a wonderful job on this top and I just bought this pattern yesterday with the same in mind; make a top out of it! Thanks to your posting, Ill get it done even sooner now.

You have done a fantastic job! Great notes about stretching while you stitch - esp. for the waist pin tucks.

An absolutely gorgeous top and lovely colour. Yoou've done a great job with the fitting. I'd never thought of making that dress as a shirt, I'll see if can do the same with some of my other dress pattens.
