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

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.

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!

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

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 :-)

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 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. :-)
