What great pattern, you can do so many things with it. I especially like the batiste shirt. Very informative review.

MB, they are all great, but I especially like the smock. The colors are great on you. I also don't think it looks like a Big Shirt because it's fitted at your shoulders/armholes. I think it's much more contemporary than you're giving it credit. Sort of like the shorter trenches that are so popular.

Thanks, MaryBeth! This pattern has been in my stash for absolute ages but I haven't tried it yet. I've pulled it out several times, but for some reason have always opted to do something else. I needed a reminder to get it out again... ;)

Excellent review, and excellent results. Looks like 3 times is the charm, and now you've got it down. We could all learn from your stick-to-itiveness with this pattern. Looking forward to seeing a few more versions of this from you :-)

I'm amazed at how different all the tops look. Great work!

What a great looking top. I love the fact that different fabrics make a big change in how this looks. Great job.

You've really nailed this one, MB. They look great! Thanks for bringing up this pattern - hadn't noticed it.

I like all your tops, especially the long one. You're right--this is a workhorse of a pattern!

Nice tops, great review. Good suggestion to work some of the techniques on a slightly less fitted version of a top pattern.

Thanks for the review and pictures. I saw this in the catalog, and wondered how it would look in real life. I use a Vogue 18, and wanted to see this shirt on someone similar. It looks so good! I especially like the long version, which looks more flattering than the usual big shirt.
