The little tiny picture looks pretty but doesn't work as a big picture. Can you check you link, or maybe your album is set to private?

Good looking top, but your links don't seem to be working.

OP Gal said...
The picture looks cute in the thumbnail, but I'm guessing you still have the picture set as "private." (I've done this myself--one thing I don't like about Yahoo! photos.) Can't wait to see the top up close.

Whoops! Sorry. It's public and wide open now.

great top, you look great. I had seen this pattern reviewed on threads magazine and I like your choice of fabric even better. It looks like a happy blouse...

Your top looks very Pucci meets Flashdance. Rocking top. Colors pop and the style is really flattering.

OMGosh! I LOVE this! You look awesome in this top--and I am so jealous you got that fabric in the clearance isle at JoAnns --I've never seen anything that awesome at mine!! Wear it proudly!

Terrific print for this top. Like your top so much better than the illustrated versions. Hard to believe its the same top.
2/23/07 5:46 PM
Sharon M said...
The fabric you choose is delightful. Sure looks a lot better on you in this fabric than the pattern cover.

Love this top. Your review is the thing about sewing we all like best - the fabric, the pattern and the effort all come together for the best result for the least effort. Fabulous!

MissCelie said...
I am thrilled with all the praise! Thanks everyone. As for the date, it was 'enh'. But, I looked fierce!

G-r-e-a-t looking top! This looks like a woman posing for the Style mag. photo shoot! Better than RTW, no additional copies like it!
