I love this top on you too! The fabric's color and short sleeves gives you another great look of this pattern.

Love your new version of the kimono top. Beautiful colour on you.

Soleil - Thanks! As far as the hems, I think I sewed the lining and fabric together, right sides together, leaving a small hole in the lining side seam for turning the whole thing right side out again.

Wow that is so nice looking! I love your comments...I am not sure what you mean about sewing the hems together and turning over...but I want to learn it! This top looks great on you.

I keep clicking on the picture, because you look so awesome in this kimono top. The proportions are perfect on you. Thanks for the review.

This looks great on you. I was surprised to see that a kimono top could look slim and shapely...must be the ties. Very pretty!

nice. I didn't even give this pattern a second look before I saw your review. Your top is waay better than the mc calls pic. great job!

I guess you'll be lining lots of garments now that you're stocked up! This style looks so nice on your frame. Probably wouldn't work for me (too short, not as slender). Nice job.

Great looking top. I love the idea of lining wool jersey with silk.

Yes, you achieved an elegant look. Very nice. $3.50 per yard for silk lining! I'm going to have to look at Michael's website more often.

This is so cute! Much nicer than the drawing would lead me to believe. Great job!

Gorgeous and, of course, black is classic.
