Gorgeous sewn & worn Gorgeous! You look like the cat's meow in that chair; and of course you are since you beat that Macy's top. The good thing is you could actually wear yours in public.

I agree with everyone else--looks better than both the Macy's & the BWOF. I too didn't look twice at this pattern, but now I'm recosidering. Excellent job--wear it with pride!

I have this fabric and am so inspired by your top! It looks better than the Macy's one, IMO. Great job!

Awesome top!! And you look smashing in it, too!! You should be in the Macy's ad!!

I love this top, too, although it is beyond my size range. Maybe I should try with a stretch! Thanks for the great review.

So in the elevator two days ago I saw a woman in that Macy's top and thought I should try it. Now, you've gone and done it. I think it's a sign because it looks fantastic!

Fabulous top! I love it! It's ten times better than Macy's top and a hundred times better than the Burda top. I didn't even look at this pattern twice. I think your photo should be in the BWOF magazine. You look fab!

I love-love-love your beautiful top.

Okay, I LOVE it and I need one (same fabric of course! LOL). Beautiful top! :-)

Linda - I debated back and forth about going down a size or not, but decided to stick with 'my usual'. With this knit (which had a lot of stretch), I could have easily gone down a size and still been able to wear it. I think it would look great as a dress too!

Stacy I love your top, I have one started with some left over fabric I had around the house to see how it would fit and from what I can tell so far it is going to fit well. I ave thought about making this into a dress with a fairly straight skirt and a band on the bottom...About the knit, because that is what I have for fabric for a dress...did you make yours a size smaller? How stretchy was your knit?

Stacey, a very trendy top. Thank you for sharing

Gorgeous top! I already have this one on my to do list. I LOVE the fabric combo that you used.

Oh I love love love LOOVE your top!!! LOL that fabric is fantastic! And you look cool as a cucumber in it. This is the first Duro style I've seen that I like-I think it's the narrower bands, it works well. You look great in this and now I need one too (exactly like it of course, lol) BTW, yours is FAR better than the Macy's version :D

I'm glad you chose to finish it, instead of packing. You look fabulous.
