My DD went nuts for this pattern too. I just have to buy the thing and sew it up for her. I'm happy to see you did this in a linen -- another great fabric choice. Looks great.

I like yours better than the inspiration tunic. Very nice!

Nice job. Offering sewing lessons was great to get more younger people sewing.

Wow, you've really out done yourself this time, and you do great work. Love how the trim outlines the pattern and it out shines the inspiration piece. It bears repeating, watch out Tori!

I love the trim you used on this Duro-type top from Hot Patterns. It really sets everything off nicely.

Looks great! Can you wear it without something under it or does it come down too low in the front?

it is perfect!!!!!! Thanks mom!!!!!!! I am ready for tunic #2!
4/12/07 5:58 PM
marjenann said...
The tunic is very low cut, and you need some kind of coverage. My daughter ditched the privacy panel and wears a camisole instead. Either method looks good!

Well, I can see WHY your daughter and friends are crazy abuot this top, too. What a head-turner. Bravo!

I love this interpretation of this top - the fabric and the trim you used give it a more classic, tailored look, but still very up to date. Very nice.

Great version.

That's just beautiful!!! The trim looks great and makes the neckline appear more square, hmmm.... maybe even I can wear this... thanks for sharing with us!!!
