Thanks for the very helpful review. I plan on sewing view D of this up today and appreciate your helpful tips about the elastic and sewing order. I really appreciate the insight, and your top is great.

Cute! I did not recognize the pattern when it came...I bought it based on the animal-print pic too...much cuter. In fact, I got animal-print fabric for it. Glad to see your positive review.

Very cute, Sue! I like this pattern and I really like the way you spaced buttons on the open sleeves...I'm with you on the fabric from Joann's lately, their quality had improved a while back and now seems to be regressing...
