I wouldn't have considered this pattern until I saw your version-it's boho deluxe! Thanks for a thorough review-it really helps.

Your version is a significant improvement over the pattern cover-it's very pretty! I especially like the trim.

Your top is special! Since you have been kind enough to share all of your secrets, I'd like to try it in the fabric you chose, with all of the tricks you used. Thanks!

I love it! And certainly get the feeling that Simplicity would sell a lot more of this pattern with your photo on the front of the envelope!

I'm always "wowed" by your fabric and design choices. This looks so cute. Even a simple top like this, you were able to add your personal style to make it special. I'm impressed!

Thanks for the review and your tips. I'm always looking for this type of casual top and after reading your review I'll be adding it to the catalogue. Your description gives me confidence to give this a try since I'm a novice.

Debra ~ as usual a very pretty top and a very thorough review! You are picking such interesting patterns, things I have looked at and skipped over. Things for helping me to see them in a new light!
