Beautiful. You have such a talent for picking styles that are perfect for you, and a photographer that makes every review photo a work of art.

This is an absolutely beautiful top and flatters your lovely figure perfectly! Thanks for the great tips, too.

Really lovely top. I enjoyed seeing your Betsey Johnson seam technique!

Pretty, pretty. It's so good to see this made up and worn by a real person. You've also probably saved me from a d'oh moment with your thoughts on the back piece being cut into two biased pieces. I'm going to print out this review to keep with the pattern. Thanks bunches!

Thank you all SO MUCH, for the lovely comments! I'm blushing. (: Tini, I told my husband (a software project manager) you want him to take pictures of you and he said "Sure. Have her come over." But I know it is a long drive! Sherril I threw a pic of my SA up for 'ya, HTH. Skye, if this were in a knit, it would have a lot of ease, but that could look hip in a thin jersey. For a closer fit, a similar style is NL 6149, or for an even closer fit, with sleeve that isn't cut on, try NL 6521. HTH!

Stunning blouse, such a beautiful colour for you . Thanks for tips re SA and bias cut fronts so neckline will be on straight grain. Your reviews are always so helpful and you have the clearest pictures!

Another pattern that will go on my "need to have list" because of your great great reviews! I need to come over to let your photographer take pictures of me too :) is he a professional? If not, tell him, he really can be one !

Beautiful! I like soft silks in simple styles a lot. I have been thinking about sueded charmeuse lately. Your color is perfect for the top.

Kelly, Beautiful top! Style and color suits you so well! I would'n consider it from env drawing either, but you made me relook at it much closer. Thank you

Wonderful top! I would never have given it a second thought looking at the envelope picture, but seeing it made up I may need to try it out.

Stunning CambricTea! A simple pattern, beautifully crafted in beautiful fabric .. and beautiful photos once more. Thanks for the tip on the back bias too :)

CTea, you look stunning in this blouse. I love the fit and I appreciate your details with the seam allowances. In fact, I'd love to see a pic of them.

This is just beautiful! So very flattering on you, too. Lovely!
Skye said... (2/26/06 1:54 AM) Reply
Stunning ! and thanks for the helpful hints re bias. Would this pattern work in a knit cut out on straight with stretch going around body ie not cut on the bias??

Another beautiful work, Cambric Tea! The top looks great on you. I am also very impressed by your photo works that show your project including the enitre mood it produces. I enjoy and appreciate your attention to every detail!

This top is absolutely striking on you! Thanks for your great review and the tips on how you achieved the straight seams on the bias.

This is an example of how stunning a simple classic style can be when done so lovingly in a wondrous fabric. Your bias techniques were very helpful too.
