Thanks for the review. Your top looks fabulous. Your choices of fabric, piping color and embroidery really makes this a special piece.

This is astounding! Absolutely stunning - I also have to ask. Are they gum leaves?

Lovely. Who'd have thought such a dressy piece would come from this. (The pattern photo really isn't very good.) Very nice. Too bad you aren't happier with the fit. I've never tried piping, so you are braver than I am. You use silk dupioni for your muslin? Perhaps next go-around you can use real muslin & make fitting marks right on the garment.

Anne M: No - used muslin for the muslin! NOt that crazy! Those are gum leaves by the way Motomoda.
