Oh wow! Love this review!

Most gorgeous piece and color of linen jacquard! The color and style are so elegant on you. Aside - Ladies were tripping over themselves to look at Ann's flowing garment and were amazed to learn that she had sewn to watch and hear all the fuss.

You and Barbara look beautiful! (I too would be in trouble if I HAD to find something pink in my wardrobe or stash!)

Ann, once again you have hit it out of the park. Nice! You both look so nice.

You look very pretty in pink! I love both versions of this pattern. Very nice sewing and great review. Thanks!

That is really pretty, Ann! I also like it open and flowing.

You certainly made the most of that fabric and looked "pretty in pink." It was the perfect pattern. Looking back at the original fabric, I had forgotten how cool that was. Nice to see Barbara too.

Ann: another winner. The stripes and the pattern are perfect for each other and the look on you is fabulous.

Tres chic. Very nicely done. Love your styles!

brrmm: yes the wrong side of the fabric shows at the collar. There is a seam there as well as across the shoulders. Those seams give the shaping to the garment.

Smashing use of draped stripes. You look lovely; even your sandals have a diagonal stripe!

Beautiful vest. The stripes show off beautifully. Thanks for the great review.

Really fascinating use of stripes in your ensemble.

Now I would never have thought how good this is for stripes! I like the clever use of a single piece of fabric, and I especially like the back of your vest. Always love your clothes Ann, and find your reviews inspiring.

Anne, I love your top!! Have seen this pattern and skimmed over it, but will give it a good look over now. The tech drawing looks there is a whopping big seam in the back collar? Is the wrong side of the fabric showing in the collar front & back ?

Great pattern! I really like the look of this on you. I love the way the striped fabric works so well in this.

Dorothy, definitely, especially with a cooperative fabric like linen or cotton. Mary, I enjoyed meeting you too. Wasn't that a fun weekend!

Wonderful take on the pattern and selection fabric. I look forward to reviews and wearable art.

Ann, this is spectacular. Is it something a beginner can make?

Ann, You looked splendid in this on Saturday at Marcy Tilton's and Shermane Fouche's seminar. It was great to see you in person, and you have inspired me to soon leave lurkdom and start contributing to this special community. Mary Mohr

Ann, I love reading your reviews and looking at your pictures!! You make the coolest things and always look lovely in them. Thank you for sharing! Nice thorough review. I like the pin closure. Carla

Very cool...after seeing how great your version looks, I really must pull this one out of the pattern stash and get is sewn! I think the pin really adds a lot to the outfit.
