Love it. I was going to make this one, but didn't want my stretch mark tummy too peek out in the front. Looks adorable on you!

Thanks for a great review. I have been thinking about this pattern for me and I love the skirt you made before the vest. The ruffles on the one in the pictures look so cool and breezy. Wonderful job!

The ruffled version is so cute - that would be so much fun to wear

What a fun top. I love your fabric with the subtle print, looks like it would be very cool in summer.

Love the shirt! You have great attitude with it on, too.

I have the pattern and want to make the flounced version. Been wondering how it would turn out, and your version is so great that I'm sure I want to make it now, and that it will work on me! Yours is beautiful and flattering.

Lhan, I love it! I would never have "seen" this potential from that pattern pic. It's bright, snazzy, good shaping--nothing frumpy about this pattern at all, unlike their pic.
