This is my favorite PR garment this year! Your perfect matching of the stripes brings the top to the level of international designer quality.

Love it! I need that pattern and I am already tempted to copy the idea of a striped version. Really awesome.

It is great to see two really different versions of this top appear, clearly it's very versatile and looks great in both versions!

Wow, you did an awesome job! I love a good use of stripes and you nailed it.

Very striking with the black stripes. Looks like an awesome top. Thanks for posting.

This is absolutely fabulous. And the choice of a striped fabric was genius. LOVE IT !
Jstarr4250 said... (1/12/13 6:11 PM) Reply
The fit is fantastic mnitts. The only thing I will do on the next one is take a little wedge from the collar center back seam. It could be a bit more snug to keep the stripes nice and straight.

Looks fab. How is the fit? As good as they promise? You will have to post a picture of yourself modelling it :-)
Jstarr4250 said... (1/12/13 6:05 PM) Reply
Copy away ArtAttack! You know what they say about imitation.... Re Becca, it really isn't complicated at all but if you get stuck feel free to PM me.
ArtAttack said... (1/12/13 5:56 PM) Reply
This is a show-stopper! I think I must shamelessly copy you! Too cute!
meggipeg said... (1/12/13 5:53 PM) Reply
That looks absolutely incredible. I can't work out how it goes together from your picture. Love your version :)

I love the chevron effect with the fabric you chose. This is a very cute top. Thanks for your review!

OMG! This is so AWESOME!!!
Re Becca said... (1/12/13 5:42 PM) Reply
OK, that is just too cute! Lekala huh? I may have to jump on the bandwagon for this one. You said this was easy to make, it looks really complicated.
