You really, really made some great tops with this pattern, each quite unique! Foldover elastic, ruffles, a cool zipper, color blocking, the pairing of the textured purple fabric with the smoother fabric--lots of great ideas. Super job!

Renata said...
Well done. Totally awesome collection. Difficult, but the purple one would have to be my favourite. Love that bubble knit.

I really love the ruffles! That blue color blocked one has got to be my favorite, though. Nice placement of the fabrics.

Wow, they all look great and they are all quite different. Not sure if my favorite is version 3 or 4. Great colour choice.

sewinfrance said...
They all look great, your fabric choices are well-coordinated, the colour blocking is very successful. I like your ruffles and appreciate how they can often be a pain in the **** to execute!

BeaJay said...
I love all of these - they are fabo. I am hard pressed to pick a favourite! They all have great elements. Love the classic stripe - very clean looking. LOVE the ruffles on the sleeves of the purple version - very sassy. LOVE the way you have done the ruffles on the red version - gives it edge. But I must say - after careful consideration - my 2 favourites are the block colour / pattern red and blue - rocking the zipper on the red. Great job with these.

If they were mine i would not know which one to choose. They are all fine

Great job on all of them! My favourite's the purple one. Love the fold-over elastic. I didn't know such a product exists.

Austragirl said...
Another one where I have the uncut pattern in my stash. I bought it after you reviewed the pattern a couple of years ago. So you're sure giving it a good workout. My fave is the colour blocking.
1/29/13 5:11 AM
Anne Cherry said...
They all look so fabulously different!! My faves are the red ones...especially the ruffle one. Can't believe they are all from the same pattern! [now running to pattern box to dig this one out...have made the skirt but now very keen to make the T shirt!]

Your tops look fabulous on you!

Wow, these are fantastic tops! I really like the way you used color blocking on the aqua version- I'll have to copy where you put the seamlines.
1/29/13 6:38 AM
Bobbi B said...
Absolutely a fun mixture of great tops. All of them are my favorites.

You did a great job on all your tee's. I do like the ruffles. It looks like you have yourself a great TNT.

Lovely job, my favourites are the aqua colors, ( not a red person) but they all look great on you.

treefrog said...
Fantastic! I love how you have combined the different fabrics. The ruffles look fantastic done in the mesh print. And the texture on the sleeves of the purple top is great. Can I put my order in???

Fantastic collection of T-shirts, they all look brilliant but do love the red/black/white one with the zip.

I just found this pattern, and you inspire me to really get into it. I love the top, but the pants are fabulous too...remind me of my hippie heydays! Thanks for your review, really pretty tops.

Ashford said...
I am so motivated by your creativity. I cannot believe how you could imagine all these tops from that one pattern. You shine in all of them, but my favorite one on you is the solid red with the print on the opposite side. Congratulations on your contest entry. I hope you will sew more patterns in this manner and share them with us.
