You are going to have to make this trip an annual event with this wonderful wardrobe ...

Very creative! I bet it looks great on you. I think you need to stay an extra week to wear all these great new clothes.

So cute! I made my daughter a few halter tops (ie with neck ties since she's only 9) using this same technique and she loved them during the summer.

Always good to hear about successful experiments. At the rate you're going, you'll need extra luggage to transport your vacation wardrobe.

Great idea to add the clear elastic to the upper edge for security. This is very cute. Have a great time on the trip!

Very clever! The top fits the bill and looks good, too.

I finally got around to reading this review and all I can think is that you are a threat to pattern companies the world over. No pattern, no directions, and just look at your results: fantastic!

Hey! You changed your necklace!! No matter, you look great no matter how you accessorize. Love it!

Love your top. You look cute & sexy! Thanks for the all the details in your very helpful review. Lengthen it and you have a pretty dress or swimsuit cover up.

Burning. Tropics. Envy!!!! The top looks even better on you than your form. I hope you had a wonderful time! -Ann
