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!!!

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.

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

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!

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

I think this is one of the first HP patterns that I have really liked enough to consider purchasing. You did a great job

Very well done, indeed! It's so nice when a bunch of twenty-somethings admire your creations!

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

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!

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

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

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.

It's really great looking. Lovely that it fits so well out of the package.
