That is such a nice top on a pretty daughter. You did a very nice job!

OK. That's it -- I'm subscribing to this publication! You make soooooo many cute things for your children from Ottobre Designs patterns. BTW, I also had a problem lettucing a *curved* flounce. Maybe it works better on a piece of straight fabric, with lots of stretch on the cross-grain. But yours came out just fine anyway.

Super cute --both the top and your DD! Turned out great!

Rats! You beat me to finishing this top! I just have to switch my serger to make the hem. Yours looks great, and this is exactly the prompt I need to finish mine!

Cute! Your daugther seems very pleased with her top. Thanks for the closup picture of the sleeve hem.

Thanks Melissa, but at $18 a yard, now I don't think I WANT to find it! LOL. From what I can see, this top also looks lovely in one color :-)

What a lovely top! The color and detailing of the sleeves is so pretty.

pterion, they had the knit at www.seweuro.com, but I see it's now sold out. It was $18/yd, so it was a little spendy, but definitely super cute. I'm not sure if they'll get any more in, it wouldn't hurt to email. Hope you find it! :-)

So cute! I think your lettuce hem looks just fine. I have this one on my list as well. Would love to know where to get hold of the interlock they (Ottobre Design) used with different color on each side.

Feed this top a human growth hormone and I'd wear in a couple of heartbeats!

I really like the sleeve detail. The shirt looks nice on her, and she looks happy with it!

Love the sleeve detail. Too cute. Pink is a great color for her. Good job.
