I love your top; I went to Mood and purchased that fabric. Love your blog.

A very successful top. One way to clone the flounce would be to take a piece of very fine fabric, examine the flounce carefully to find a straight grain radiating from the neck (it could be where the flounce is seamed). Pin your muslin matching its grain line, then carefully work round the whole flounce (or just half if it is symmetrical) You would need the finest pins you can find - entymological pins are best. Then mark the seam and edge lines with whatever method you trust. Remove from the garment, lay out flat on tissue paper, trace and add your seam and hem allowances.

Beautiful top, there is something about using pi times the length of your neckline to make a circle that becomes a flounce. Once you have the circle you draw another one outside of it the width you want your flounce. Peggy Sagers had the formula in one of her webcasts. She would probably answer your question via email. I particularly love the crispness of the blue and white print, just lovely.

Great job cloning the Kate Spade top. ove your fabric choice. I really need to take this class.

I love all your clones, you are getting so great at it! The flounces I don't think would be too bad to add, but I would advise "borrowing" from another pattern if you have one that has these because it would be great to have those as well (but your version without is still great!).

I am so tempted to purchase the cloning class, I love reading your reviews. I can't tell from the course descrption if he demonstrates how to clone a sleeve, or if he talks about knits?

Love your top and your blog - I can't post a comment there b/c I don't have a worldpress acct but wanted to tell you I've learned so much from reading it & your reviews - thank you!
