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!

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!

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

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.

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).

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

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

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

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

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.
