It looks soo cheery! You did a good job fixing the things you fixed on this version. I'm particular about fit, too, and understand your wanting to tweak until you're absolutely happy with the fit. :-)

It looks fun and summery.

It's a lovely color on you, and looks like a retro summertime print. Still it fits better than RTW. BTW, did you lose weight? You look good!

It's a great shirt - although I admit the collar looks a little interesting.. The gaping neckline: two fixes: First don't use the pattern piece for the length - calculate it like I described in my review. Second (if you already did that with measuring): maybe try the "hollow chest alteration" in FFRP page 131 - it will work even if you don't have a hollow chest :-)

I like how you have the stripes on the diagonal. It's a chic shirt.

You did a really good job turning that dress pattern into a top! It looks great! The fabric is really nice, too and matches that style perfectly! Thanks for this great review!

This is so mod and fun looking. I like the collar too.

I think the top looks great. Love the collar, so I'd hate to see you leave it off the next garment. Also, love the glam photo with your bio. I saw all the poses on your web site and really liked this one, too.

tres chic Tini, love the way the stripes add to the style. Glad you got the fit tweaked, and congrats on the weightloss :)
