What a great way to stretch your stash - I love this top! I'm getting ready to start on this pattern and never would have thought about the way you did that! I'm encouraged and inspired. Thank-you!

I just picked up this pattern at an enabler sale at Hancocks and am so pleased to read your review. I hope mine comes out as nicely - thanks for the tips about the seamline and the length!

This is a lovely use of a great fabric. Pieced work can make such stunning products on very simple lines - so you get a designer garment with relatively little pain, as you did. And it is fun as well! Well chosen pattern - and thanks for the tip on placement of the seam. I look forward to the next great design. Any chance of a photo with you in it?

I have this pattern but your take on it is so different and smart that at first I wasn't sure what I was looking at. It is beautiful and so much more interesting than using just one colour which is what I did - sigh!! Guess I will have to re-think my strategy??

This is so cute!! I dont' think I would have looked twice at this pattern but I love your version, it's so much nicer than the vogue images. I think I'll pick this one up after all.

Great use of stash fabric and a beautiful garment. Always good to see good plus size patterns.

ohh, I had my eye on this pattern! I like your interpretation - using different fabrics for the upper and lower portions is a great idea. Beautiful work!
