Wow! This is a great looking top on you. I love the changes you made to the pattern. Looks similar in style to some RTW tops I saw shopping yesterday -- but yours is sew much nicer! I just added this pattern to my wish list. Thanks for the review.

Great top Stacy. So much nicer than the ones on the pattern envelope.

Way to go Stacy! I'm impressed with your eye for pattern and fabric....not to mention your speed.

Another example of a PR member's outfit looking better than the pattern picture. Cute trendy, dressy-casual top.

Very cute! And I'm so impressed that you bought and brought it all together for a finished top in the same day.

Really great. The fabrics complement each other beautifully.

Looks very good on you. I like the look but the view you are wearing will not look so good on me, but the other view has potential. Glad you reviewed this

What a great pattern, I can't believe how quick this came together. I love it..

Beautiful top and beautiful picture. You look marvelous. Three hours is amazing. I've never made anything in 3 hours--except maybe a bookmark!

The top looks better on you than it did in the pattern jacket illustration. The design complements you perfectly, and the fabric choice is excellent. If only there were a Hancock near me (sigh).

This would be a bit much for my shape, but yours looks wonderful on you! I do like the design and what you did with it.

What an interesting design. I like your interpretation a lot. On my list too.

Stacy you look goreous in your top! I think you just sold this top for Butterick to many PR members! Thanks for the great visual of what this can look like.

Your top turned out so beautifully!! Yay- there is nothing like a fast and easy success.

Very cute! On my list as a "MUST BUY"!

This is better in person than the envelope. I have some burnout fabric just right for this. Thanks.

Stacy, Thanks for reviewing this. My dd would love it. As a matter of fact, they each HAVE a top similiar to this, and I had been looking for a pattern. And w/ the Hancock sale, I'll have to snatch it up!

That is wonderful!

You can't beat 3 hours - it looks fantastic on you!

Beautiful-Have to have this pattern too!

Very pretty 3 hour tunic. I really like the matte jersey and printed stretch lace. I wonder if the Hancock's here has anything like that. Edited to add: I think we live in the same area, so maybe I'd better check out the local Hancock's!

Amazing! I had this pattern in my buggy yesterday but put it back. I will definitely be back to pick it up. Looks Very Nice!
