I love your top, especially your fabric. I sewed two of these over the weekend and in fact, am wearing one today! This is quickly becoming one of my favorite patterns.

Love the shirt and the form. How did you make this form? I'd love to try.

Ah, the dressform... aka 'La Mujer Pantera' (if you've been alive long enough to have seen Kiss of the Spider Woman?). A pedestrian Uniquely You, divinely fitted by Elizabeth Poole http://www.dmeep.net/ejp/ who, before getting into quilting was a theater costume person and learned some amazing technical skills at it. I'm constantly shocked by how much she looks like me (laMP, not EJP). As to the cover, it's a simple unfitted lycra silhouette slipped on, only the neck and shoulders have any shape. I saw something along those lines in the windows of an Italian designer I've forgotten on a late winter night in NY, and decided that just because my dressform is a large obtrusive object I didn't have to look at ugly canvas. Good thing, since it's been cluttering up my floor space for a long while now :-). If you don't have a dressform, make one! Nothing will improve your sewing so much as to be able to really see your body in 3 dimensions...

Thanks for the review. I love your dress form, is dress form still being sold? Did you cover it yourself? ALSO: Thanks for responding about dress form!

Tres belle! It looks wonderful and only 75 cents for the fabric? WOW! What a bargain!
