Fantastic tops! The style really lets the fabric be the star and you wouldn't even think they were made from the same pattern - just all perfect. Great entry. Good luck!

Beajay, are you just a little bit pleased with this pattern? I like the purple border and the placement.

Great tops and review! StyleArc customer service definitely goes above and beyond--I keep reading very positive things about the company.

Great job BeaJay! I like all of them. My favourite is the animal print one, and I wouldn't have thought of using a border print, but that purple one looks lovely. Well done!

Love all your tops but I think my fave is the animal print one. Good to see another Aussie in the contest!

It's SO awesome to have a pattern that you know you can just pull out and stitch up in half a minute! Great job. Both your tops look fabulous.

Another great-looking top and very cool that you've completed 2 entries for the contest. (edited 1/28/13: All of your tops look super!)

Okay, this fabric is the bottom of the top shown with your pants. Totally cute on you. I am such a chicken with the Style Arc thing...not sure what that's about. This looks great on you!

Nice to see you made another Cate top. It's hard to stop at one, isn't it? :)

I have to take a second look at Style Arc patterns. I love the cowl neck think your top is fabulous.

Fantastic outfit and can see why you love this top, and looking forward to seeing how you change it for OPML.

Oh well done you! Pants are on my to do list for Jan/Feb so it's encouraging to see yours looking so good (though I realise it won't be easy). :-) Your supervisor is sooo pretty!

I'd be doing a happy dance in this nicely fitting and flattering top too. You're on a roll BeaJay.

Lovely! This is a favourite pattern of mine too :) both your versions are great.

Great outfit. Very flattering.

Great top! As much as you love this top, you will become addicted, I know I have. I didn't like my first one until a couple months after I made it, and I've made a couple more since. Like you said, it is very forgiving, and I think it is attractive for busty women. Very trendy style also. Great job.

Thanks for the review, BeaJay. Having just worked my way into the plus size category, I need all the help I can get, and this was very helpful. I think I'll try a Style Arc pattern.

Fabulous top !!! The style suits you beautifully.

Great top! There's nothing like a quick win.

Nice top! I'm very busty as well, and FWIW, I've found that it's worked out okay when I've chosen a StyleArc size by full bust for more fitted patterns--the shoulders on those seem to run smaller. (e.g. the "Alice" top fit me perfectly out of the envelope when ordered by full bust).

Wonderful outfit! Very flattering. I can understand why you are so happy. I love this pattern too and I have made it several times.
