Great fabric and definitely not Flintstones. I think I prefer the crinkled look as the fit will be more flattering on you.

I was unaware of this pattern, but this is a beautiful top! And definitely not yabba dabba do. :)

This is beautiful and what a great idea for a fabric source! I've noticed this pattern and its positive reviews and plan to give it a try based on your great experience with it. Love that crinkled fit!

I just bought the download. The instructions and illustrations look terrific and I think this is going to be moved to the front of the que! Thanks for the inspiration.

Oh that blouse is so lovely! What a great reuse of fabric. That back detailing is divine!

Your shirt is great! Thanks for the washing a twisting idea. That is so cool.

As soon as I saw the thumbnail of this, I knew it was one of your lovely creations. As always, the fit and fabric is gorgeous. The crinkle effect making this into a fitted blouse is genius. I will look at crinkle fabric with new eyes from now on as a whole host of possibilities suddenly present themselves.

Love your reviews- beautiful thinking through to a fine result. I always learn a lot from your terrific wardrobe. Back detail- nice and easy to try on my TNT.

Gorgeous shirt, and so clever with the crinkles. The yabba dabba doo reference made me laugh!

Oh, I love this! No! The fabric is just wonderful, I like the mottled effect but not animal print, very different. And the crinkles! Simply brilliant! Great job!

OMG - that top is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the way it seems to hug the waist and that fabric is divine. It looks like it would be really flattering on. That twisting is a great technique. Another wonderful top.

Well, your two Archer shirts are not just my favorites - they are the only ones that have really caught my eye. They are lovely. Your fabric choices are outstanding and bring out the best in the pattern.

I just adore this. And to think that you made it from a mumu. The texture at the waist is so beautiful!
