Very nice review! I would never have thought of so many variations.

What a great top with such variety! #7, the blue print tank top is my personal favorite. You are SO creative!

Amazing job on all the tops, each one unique and wonderful.

Wow - and how did you manage so much in a state of sleep deprivation, I ask? :-) Nice tops - perfect price.

You are brilliant and amazing - I can't pick a favorite, but you sure have inspired me. I have had this pattern in my stash since it came out last fall - looks like I'll be pulling this out for the pattern stash contest.

Lovely selection! I particularly love the stretch lace version. Such a good idea!

Wow, this is a serious inspiration for me to try this pattern that I have in stash but wasn't sure about. Super tops!

Great looking tops (and dress)! You went above and beyond with creativity! I would have never imagine these being made from the same pattern. You chose some great fabrics as well.

I love this pattern, have made up the cowl but enjoyed seeing all your versions made from it. I cut my cowl pattern and decided I liked it so much bought another one just to keep all the sizes on it. Excellent review of the pattern. What I thought was strange about this pattern was it needs a knit but still tells you to cut the cowl on the bias? How did you do yours?

Wow, so many cute tops out of one pattern. You were so creative and it has really paid off!

I admire your creativity! All of your versions look wonderful, and a great review.

I love everyone of these shirts especially the one with the lace! Your ideas got my ole brain synapses a firing, especially the ones when you repurposed fabric garments found at Goodwill and Walmart. A major problem I have is finding fabric I want to sew. You have done so, and at such a reasonable cost!

You've shown such creativity with this pattern. I love all your fabric choices and mixed origins. : )

Fun! I love every single garment you made from this pattern. Great job Amy May!

Oh my! those are cute tops. I'm thrilled I have this pattern. It's in my pile for next month's contest.

Wow! I need to make an effort to be more imaginative. Your versions are so clever and no one would even think they were the same pattern (not that it would matter if they did). Great job and they are all so beautifully sewn.
