I sure love your version of the shirt in this fabric! I don't have this pattern but would love get these results. Thanks for sharing.

Ooohhhh! I love this top with the beautiful buttermilk and the v-neck, it looks like it came from Nordstroms. Great fabric choice for this tee.

Oh man! I almost bought this fabulous fabric with a t-shirt in mind just like yours. Yours looks absolutely terrific!!! I could kick myself for not buying this fabric, but at least I did buy some other nice buttermilks. After looking at your awesome t-shirts, better get moving using those EOS fabrics!

I really wanted this fabric when I saw it on EOS but I refrained. Now I wish I hadn't! Oh, well, I'm glad to see what good use you put it to. Your second shirt is beautiful.

Stacy, I like your newest version much better, too. I bet you are glad you gave the pattern another chance.

Sometimes that's all it takes, the right fabric and the right pattern and "By Jove - You've got it". At least that's the way I feel. I love this fabric and I, too, believe that v-necks are much more flattering.

Very nice fabric. Thank you for your review.

Cute, Cute! The buttermilk is beautiful. I love this pattern, and didn't run into issues with the extended shoulder, high armhole, and narrow sleeve. The shoulders look good on my frame (the illusion of wide shoulders?). Before I made the first muslin I made some alterations based on PR reviews. I ended up taking out most of them because the pattern fit better with only my standard upper chest adjustment. I've worn versions 2,3, and 4 this week. A very comfy and flattering shirt. Enjoy yours!

Awesome 2nd try!

I suggest overdying the top with another color that you like better -- maybe a darker purple, or a blue? If it fits well, maybe that would save it, even if it's never your very favorite t-shirt.

If you NOW do NOT like the fabric, why salvage this? It looks like a great job!! I have never worked with Jalie patterns, but I might just try!!

Thanks for your review! I agree, it is a great top. Would it be possible to modify the neckline, to a v ? I bet you could do that and salvage the top.

I am so glad to see more versions of this top and hear how it works out for different individuals. Thanks for the review.
