Fun use of this pattern. It really does seem like a great pattern. I don't generally wear halter tops, but it's almost enough to make me want to do so.

Thanks so much, ladies! :) Actually this was so much fun using the fat quarters, I'll keep my eyes open for other fq-friendly patterns.

I *love* that you can use bits and pieces of different fabrics. Very cool.

Mad, it's an awesome second interpretation of this top! I love that a stash of FQ's can make this one so nicely and originally. I am trying to do my first Cabo this weekend. You have such creativity!

Great top! Love your design. I've been trying to think of ways to use my quilting stash fabric, so thanks for the inspiration. Love your garden and pond!

Thank you, ladies =) Cindy-Lou, I don't mind the reference, in fact I feel quite honored about it. And, ladies - no need to envy me for the view... someone needs to clean those windows, so I have to work hard for it ;)

Very cute and I think piping adds so much to a garment. I am with moss and Hilary. That view is gorgeous.

Nice job! the piping makes it--nice touch! You look adorable in it...I have a bad case of halter envy, I think I am too busty for them...maybe I need a good halter bra or something.....

Oh, wow! I'm going to reference your version on the One-Pattern-Multiple-Looks thread-- hope you don1t mind. How I wish it were for sale at a shop in the US! :)

Gorgeous! I love the fabrics you chose, and I am completely jealous of the lovely view out your windows :o)
