You have a creative brain to see potential when looking at the Vogue version of this top. You ended up with such a flattering design with the darker side panels. Nice work!

I love the fabric choice you made with this top! Now that fall is around the corner I'm looking to make some long sleeve tops. Also, I appreciate all of the work you have posted including choice of fabric and the quality of your sewing and tailoring. It's very inspiring! Thank you.

I missed your review previously. Wow you made this pattern look great. I never liked this pattern because of the garment the model is wearing, ugly fabric. Your top looks fabulous.

You should have done the pattern cover. I did not even give it a second glance 'til I saw your make. Great fabric choices. Love it

I had exactly the same reaction as everyone else. This is gorgeous. What, however, was Vogue thinking?

I would have passed right past this pattern if all I saw was the company's pic. Your version is fabulous! It's attractive and so flattering. Vogue may owe you a thank you - I'm sure they'll be selling a few extra of these soon! Really, what a great eye you had for fabric and style; very cool.

This really caught my eye, it's a perfect combination of fabrics. I want one ;)

Really lovely. Your version should be on pattern envelope .

What else can one say! I agree with everyone's comments and need to purchase this pattern ASAP.

Such a tasteful choice of fabrics. I think Vogue should change their photo to yours. Yours pops theirs looks like a wadder. Thank you so much for bringing this excellent pattern to life! VaVaVoom!

Wow! I hadn't even noticed this pattern and now I have to have it. I suddenly have so many ideas after seeing your version. As others have said Vogue should pay you.

Fabulous top! That fabric is really gorgeous, you know how to combine fabric and patterns, too bad Vogue doesn't ! ;)

Lucy you hit the jackpot on this pattern, I'm buying it at the next vogue pattern sale. So this friend in Quebec I keep hearing about does she know we love her fabric she sends you, maybe your next trip back home I should meet up with you :)

Well, you made a pretty top! Outdid the envelope pics by a mile! Very nice work.

I also agree - it is so much better than the pattern envelope!

This is such a great top and I would have never looked at that pattern. Great job.
Elona said... (2/26/14 11:25 PM) Reply
This is startling! I would never have thought of this pattern based on the vogue illustration. Thanks for the heads up, and for showing your lovely Tee.

A perfect example of a great fabric making all the difference. What vision you had to sew this design in your beautiful knit. It's just wonderful.

Gorgeous fabric! I love your shirt!

Wow, great blouse...I never looked twice at this pattern because the cover photo totally turned me off!! I agree --Vogue should contact you! Great job!

I agree with ArtAttack. The shiny cheesy fabric that Vogue used turned me off, but your choice really makes this pattern smoke! I like the way the angles and your use of the pattern and the solid accentuate the waist. Very nice.
Sue Parrott said... (2/26/14 10:11 PM) Reply
So cute! I made this for my daughter and she LOVES it! I should review it as well. It's very cute!
Morisot said... (2/26/14 9:59 PM) Reply
Vogue should pay you and put your version on their pattern envelope. Yours is fabulous!
ArtAttack said... (2/26/14 9:52 PM) Reply
Wow...never in a million years would I have looked at this pattern based on the envelope but yours is dynamite! What fabulous fabric! So unique and so you!
