Irina, nice job on your top. You may not be used to a snug fit around your mid section, but you really don't need to size up. Great top on a great figure.

Irina: This is gorgeous on you. I too have owned the pattern for ages, but for some reason have never opened the envelope. You've convinced me to give it a whirl. Thanks for review.

This pattern fits perfectly on your figure. Nice work.

Like everybody else, the first thing I noticed was the perfect fit. In fact, I only clicked the review itself because I was curious if it had taken a lot of alterations, or only a little bit of work. The print is lovely, it reminds me of beautiful origami paper. Gives it an almost Japanese flair. :)

You have a similar build to me (although taller), so I love to see your reviews. I just got this pattern, and am looking forward to making it.

You look so nice in this. I've made it for DDs who are both 20 something, and they look terrific. Maybe I could wear one too? (wistful sigh)

I LOVE this top and the way it looks on you! The fabric is lovely, and I like how the V-neck isn't too low. Perfect!

Irina - I laughed when I read your comment re your "aging mid section". I looked at the project photo first and thought "what a nice slim waist" and envied you. The top is just lovely on you and if my mid section looked like that I would be over the moon!! Am dieting and exercising and maybe soon???

It looks terrific on you - midsection and all! Kay

I love your version of this top! I need to order this pattern as it always turns out so well. And I think the smaller print fabric is perfect for it and that it looks perfect on you! Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a perfect fit to me, and I love the fabric you used. Is it any wonder this pattern is on PR's Top 20 pattern list?
ChrisK said... (3/26/06 12:40 PM) Reply
Yep, this is a great top. I like the fabric you used very much and it looks a good fit. I made this top for the first time last week but haven't reviewed it yet.
