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.

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?

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.

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???

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!

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)

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.

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. :)

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.

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.
