Very nice top. I would'nt have thought to make a short version either. I hope that you post the Empire Dress if you make one, I would love to see that also! Now I have one more Folkwear Pattern to add to my wishlist!

Your top is a brilliant use of this pattern. Thanks for the inspiration--I had never thought of doing what you've done.

Wonderful! I love this as a top - I never would have thought of it! You are tempting me to break my no-more-patterns vow!
