I'm in the process of making this top and wanted to see what others have done with it. Gorgeous! you model it perfectly.

I just stopped in to admire your versions of this pattern. Love all of them and hope I can make one as nice.

Wow, I missed this review update, PR did not notify me of your review. I love this top. The fabric and asymmetrical top are a perfect match. You look great.

Very smart looking top, Dorothy and I bet fun to sew for the "white" challenge. I like how the sides button to the back and all the design details. It looks great on you and honestly, I see no mustard stains!

I like the longer version better - would never have thought of this in a print, but it looks amazing in your spectacular print fabric. I will definitely make it, thanks to your review and the other one I found here on PR.

Very beautiful - it looks quite different with the two fabrics - I love the colors in the second top.

A great shirt, and an intriguing pattern. Thanks for a useful review.

Your decision to reduce the volume by down-sizing was a good one. It is a great shirt done this way. Perhaps a tad less dramatic but far more wearable that the original, IMO. Thanks for sharing this one, too!

Happy to see your review...I've had this pattern for awhile and looking at your creations can see that it makes a great garment. Nicely done!

What a lovely colour. (yumm), and it suits you well. Thanks for the great review.

What a beautiful top! Your choice of fabric (and the styling) make it one of a kind!

I saw this pattern and came skipping over here to see if anyone had sewn it yet. Thank you for a useful review with lots of pictures. I was thinking of it as a jacket, not a blouse, and I wonder if it would work that way.

Beautiful. As always I love that color on you. I'm eager to make this myself now.

You look very fashion-forward. The color is great on you and you did a beautiful job.

You did a great job and the color is great!!! I love this pattern and will have to make one.....

Hi everyone. Thanks for your nice comments. I guess I left out how I changed the sleeves because it was too complicated to explain, even though it was easy to do. All I did was fold up the front tail of the sleeve to the back and tacked it there. There was supposed to be a button and buttonhole, but I didn't have any more buttons. Sorry I was vague about that.

Dorothy, your top is beautiful in so many ways - the fabric, color, style, plus your creative alteration on the sleeves...really fabulous!

Cute color and fabric!
NVK said... (10/21/11 10:03 AM) Reply
This is a great top and color on you. I love the diagonal closure with the snazzy buttons. I am not sure how you changed the sleeves but I love the finished look.

What a striking and fun top! I'm interested to see the drapier version too.

This looks absolutely wonderful on you. Great color, great style worn with your usual pizzazz. I too would love to know how you changed the sleeves. Your changes make them so much more interesting than the pattern sleeves.

Soooo cute, Dorothy! You got this one made up quickly! This is a great style on you - very chic! And I especially love the cuffs - I'd be curious to hear how you changed them.

Faaabulous! I wish red suited me as well as it suits you. Great choice of fabric.
