Very nice! I just noticed this pattern -- looks like a great basic. I should get it before they decide to retire it. Thanks for the review.

Very nice -- great fabric choice. I think it looks just as good if not better without the ties, but I think what jenlee says is a good option too. Seems like it's done more often than not in RTW.

A lovely top. You might have more success making thin ties with a tube turner.

Very nice fabric for this top. It looks as if it would be comfortable to wear.

You have been missed. Nice to see your review and I really do like your top. Have made this and like you omitted the ties. It's a good pattern to have in the stash.Liberty lawn is such a beautiful fabric to sew.

A great choice of fabric and I love the jewelry you've styled it with! As for turning those tubes, I finally figured out the dritz tube turner. It's in how you get it started, gently, not by yanking on it, which is what I was doing.

REALLY nice top - looks so nice on you! You are right - you need more of these! :) nice change from the shirt look too when you want that.

This is a great tunic--I really like that U neckline. Very nice fit. For turning skinny tubes, I like the bobby pin trick:

Love your liberty fabric. Its lovely to sew with and divine to wear! I hate turning tubes too. One alternative to use a bias tape maker, then fold in half and sew from the outside.
