I love this in the stretch velvet! I made the other top (the shirred boat neck) a year and a half ago when the pattern first came out, but I must make this one in a brown stretch velvet after seeing your version!

Smashingly beautiful top! I always thought of it as casual--but now I see you can really dress it up.

Beautiful top. I can't believe you made it in a hour! And we still have "coming out" balls in Kansas City, too, so it's not just a Southern thing.

This looks to be a really nice pattern; I like the style. And nice to know it hides a little stomach fluff.

Carla, you serge the edges and then topstitch. Initially, I used the stretch stitch on my sewing machine, but didn't like the look, so I just topstitched. I didn't think the twin needles would look good on the velvet.

I love your fabric choice for this pattern. It is so elegant. I have this pattern in my stash and must dust it off.

Lovely! I like your fabric choice; it makes the perfect evening top. I'm wearing my top as I type :) and I agree about the gathers.

COH, this really is a great looking top! I may have to go with this pattern. Are the edges of the neckline finished by folding over and topstitching or are there facings? Thanks for your review. Carla

Wow! Beautiful. And a pattern that will work for you and your daughter is worth its weight in gold.
